Scientists have grown the first functioning muscles using stem cells created from skin.

The breakthrough holds promise for understanding and treating rare muscular diseases.

Muscles were grown using skin cells that had been “reprogrammed” to an original state, in which they are referred to as pluripotent stem cells.

These cells can then be encouraged to grow into muscle cells by flooding them with a substance called Pax7.
