Muscle tissue growth and repair during life takes place through the actions of satellite cells. Given the right signals, these stem cells proliferate and differentiate into myoblasts. Once differentiated, the new myoblasts fuse to each other and also with existing myofibers, thus forming the multi-nucleate cell scaffold characteristic of functioning muscle tissue.
