C2C12 Cell Line Applications

 Muscle Development and Differentiation: C2C12 cells are myoblast cells that can be readily differentiated into myotubes and are therefore extensively used to study the mechanisms of muscle development, differentiation, and regeneration.


 Gene Expression Studies: Researchers utilize C2C12 cells to investigate the regulation of gene expression during muscle cell differentiation, providing insights into muscle-specific genes and transcriptional control mechanisms.


 Drug Screening and Development: The cell line is employed in testing the effects of various compounds on muscle cells, aiding in the discovery and development of drugs for muscle-related diseases and conditions.


 Muscle Disease Modeling: C2C12 cells are used to model muscle diseases, such as muscular dystrophy, enabling researchers to study disease pathology and potential therapeutic approaches.

 Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine: The cell line is used to develop and test scaffolds and other materials intended for muscle repair and regeneration in regenerative medicine applications.
