Satellite cells are involved in physiological growth and post-traumatic regeneration of adult skeletal muscle fibres. In this study, it is shown that differentiation of primary cultures of rat satellite cells is increased by inhibitors of ser/thr protein kinases such as iso-H7, which both inhibit cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) and protein kinase C (PKC) activities, and HA1004, a PKA inhibitor. These results, showing a preponderant effect of PKA inhibition on myogenesis in vitro, prompted the effects of iso-H7 on muscular regeneration in vivo to be tested. Preliminary results showed that regeneration of rat muscle EDL was improved by iso-H7 treatment.
