Adipose Tissue-Derived Stem Cell Secreted IGF-1 Protects Myoblasts from the Negative Effect of Myostatin

Figure 3

Fusion of DAPI labeled murine myoblasts (blue nucleus) and murine ASCs carrying the pLVX-Puro-HS-GR vector (red cell membrane, green nucleus) monitored by immunofluorescence ((a)–(c)) and phase contrast microscopy overlay ((d)–(f)). The red cell membrane surrounding blue and green nuclei indicates a fusion between myoblasts and ASCs (white arrow indicating myotubes generated by fusion).
