    Abstract: The Murashige and Skoog medium (MS media) is a chemically defined and widely used as a growth medium for plant tissue culture techniques. The present study was attempted to evaluate the impact of biofield energy treatment on the physical, thermal, and spectral properties of MS media. The study was performed in two groups; one was kept as control wh... Show More

    Abstract: Identification of multipotent progenitors has been difficult due to their rarity in adults. Here, we report a novel type of neuroepithelial myogenic progenitor that can be isolated from adult murine skeletal muscle. In culture, these progenitors generated radial glia-like cells that initiated mosaic myotubes, and subsequently developed into embryon... Show More
