Interaction between skeletal muscle cells and extracellular matrix proteins using a serum free culture system

© Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature 2019. The ability to grow C2C12 myoblasts in a completely defined, serum free medium enables researchers to investigate the role of specific factors in myoblast proliferation, migration, fusion, and differentiation without the confounding effects of serum. The use of defined, animal free in vitro culture systems will improve reproducibility between research groups and may also enhance translation of tissue engineering techniques into clinical applications. Here, we describe the use and characterization of a serum free culture system for C2C12 myoblasts using standard tissue culture medium and readily available, defined growth factors and supplements.

Interactions between skeletal muscle myoblasts and their extracellular matrix revealed by a serum free culture systemChaturvedi, Vishal; Dye, Danielle; Kinnear, Bev; Van Kuppevelt, T.; Grounds, M.; Coombe, Deidre (2015)Decellularisation of skeletal muscle provides a system to study the interactions of myoblasts with muscle extracellular matrix (ECM). This study describes the efficient decellularisation of quadriceps muscle with the ...
In Vitro Expansion of Keratinocytes on Human Dermal Fibroblast-Derived Matrix Retains Their Stem-Like CharacteristicsWong, C.; Kinnear, B.; Sobota, R.; Ramalingam, R.; Legrand, C.; Dye, Danielle; Raghunath, M.; Lane, B.; Coombe, D. (2018)The long-term expansion of keratinocytes under serum- and feeder free conditions generally results in diminished proliferation and an increased commitment to terminal differentiation. Here we present a serum and xenogeneic ...
