A team around Takahiko SATO identified miR-195 and miR-497 to induce cell cycle arrest in adult skeletal muscle. Transplantation of cultured MuSCs treated with miR-195/497 contributed to regenerating muscles of dystrophin-deficient mice, indicating the potential utility of miR-195/497 for stem cell therapy of muscular dystrophy.
