Microglia Might Lessen Seizure Severity in Epilepsy
American Physiological Society (APS)

New research in mice highlights the potential protective effect of microglia—a type of non-neuronal cell in the brain—against overactivation of the central nervous system during acute epileptic seizures. The study is published in the American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology.

Communication between Skeletal Muscle Stem Cells and Fibers Supports Muscle Growth in Mice
American Physiological Society (APS)

A new study suggests that communication between skeletal muscle cells and muscle fibers promotes muscle growth. Adult muscle stem cells, called satellite cells, release extracellular vesicles that are delivered to muscle fibers responsible for contraction, to promote this muscle growth. The first-of-its-kind study is published ahead of print in the journal Function.

Less ACE2, Better Immune Function May Protect Children from Severe COVID-19
American Physiological Society (APS)

A new perspective piece suggests differences in lung physiology and immune function as possible reasons why children are often spared from severe illness associated with SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
