This showed that in humans, the number of satellite cells
correlated strongly with changing serum estrogen levels.
Lying low but ready for action: the quiescent muscle satellite cell
. FEBS Journal.
On the other hand, in the satellite cells-dependent mechanism, quiescent satellite cells
become activated, proliferate and eventually, fuse with myofibers, or fuse to each other to form new myofibers.
Concurrent aerobic exercise interferes with the satellite cell
response to acute resistance exercise.

activation and proliferation following downhill running in rats.

proliferation in vitro by inducing expression of myostatin: a possible mechanism for reestablishing satellite cell
quiescence in vivo," American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology, vol.
MyoD, myogenin, and desmin-nls-lacZ transgene emphasize the distinct patterns of satellite cell
activation in growth and regeneration.
These cells were first identified by Mauro in 1961 as quiescent cells located between the basal lamina and sarcolemma of myofibers, known as satellite cells

An autoradiographic study of satellite cell
differentiation into regenerating myotubes following transplantation of muscles in young rats.
Kadi F, Thornell LE, 2000, Concomitant increases in myonuclear and satellite cell
content in female trapezius muscle following strength training.
However, while the use of NSAIDs has been shown to decrease perceived muscle soreness and pain associated with DOMS, they fail to impact the length or degree of muscle weakness, may be detrimental to muscle cell repair and adaptation by decreasing satellite cell
activity, and have been shown to suppress the protein synthesis response in skeletal muscle after eccentric resistance exercise."
