Abstract

Skeletal muscle regeneration is a complicated process, requiring the proliferation, migration and differentiation of myoblasts whose processes are highly regulated by the extracellular matrix (ECM) surrounding the muscle tissues in vivo. However, the effects of respective ECM components on the regulation of myoblast behaviors are unknown. In this study, we report on the effect of collagen I, a major ECM component in muscle tissue and a popular food supplement, on mouse C2C12 myoblast proliferation, migration and differentiation as well as the underlying mechanisms. Collagen I (col 1) enhances the migration and myogenic differentiation of C2C12 cells, but has no effect on cell proliferation. Col I significantly promotes the production and release of interleukin-6 via nuclear translocation of nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) p65. The release of IL-6 plays a critical role in the col I-enhanced migration and differentiation of C2C12 cells. Furthermore, col I increases phosphorylation of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) that is involved in the nuclear translocation of NF-κB p65. Collectively, col I enhances the migration and differentiation of C2C12 cells through IL-6 release induced by FAK/NF-κB p65 activation.
