A research group from HKUST has discovered a method to identify the aging MuSC based on its chromatin signature. If the chromatin signature of an aging cell can be reverted to that of a young cell, then the process of cellular aging, and, in this case, the aging of skeletal muscle tissue—could be put on hold or even reversed.  Read more here.
