Morphological and Biochemical Studies of Induced and Pathological Lipidosis in Cultured Muscle Cells
Muscle biopsies can be dissociated and cells grown as myoblasts in culture in the presence of fetal calf serum-containing medium. Myoblasts grow as single mononucleated cells which fuse to multinucleated myotubes upon replacement of fetal calf serum by horse serum in the culture medium.
