One article on PainSci cites Roman 2021: A Deep Dive into Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness
PainSci notes on Roman 2021:
original abstract †Abstracts here may not perfectly match originals, for a variety of technical and practical reasons. Some abstacts are truncated for my purposes here, if they are particularly long-winded and unhelpful. I occasionally add clarifying notes. And I make some minor corrections.
Regeneration of skeletal muscle is a highly synchronized process that requires muscle stem cells (satellite cells). We found that localized injuries, as experienced through exercise, activate a myofiber self-repair mechanism that is independent of satellite cells in mice and humans. Mouse muscle injury triggers a signaling cascade involving calcium, Cdc42, and phosphokinase C that attracts myonuclei to the damaged site via microtubules and dynein. These nuclear movements accelerate sarcomere repair and locally deliver messenger RNA (mRNA) for cellular reconstruction. Myofiber self-repair is a cell-autonomous protective mechanism and represents an alternative model for understanding the restoration of muscle architecture in health and disease.
