Influence of fibroblast growth factor, insulin-like growth factor I, and transforming growth factor beta on satellite cell type I collagen expression and localization during differentiation.Cytobios. 1999; 100(394):101-10.C
Expression, and temporal and spatial distribution of type I collagen were investigated in chicken satellite cell cultures during differentiation. There was no difference in the relative amounts of type I collagen after treatment with basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF), insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), or transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1). However, myotube morphology was influenced by the presence of the growth factors. The temporal and spatial distribution of type I collagen was also modified. Control cultures maintained a predominant distribution of type I collagen surrounding the cellular area until approximately 48 h after the initiation of fusion whereas cultures with FGF or IGF-I maintained a cellular localization of type I collagen throughout the fusion process. TGF-beta 1 resulted in the early formation of an extracellular network of type I collagen preceding control cultures by approximately 24 h. These results suggest that type I collagen expression but not localization is independent of satellite cell proliferation and differentiation.
