The number of MYOG positive myofibers and the fraction of MYOG positive cells during myoblast differentiation after Li-SWT. Myoblasts were treated with shockwaves and cultured in differentiation medium and harvested 2, 4 and 6 days after Li-SWT. a We found no difference in the number of myofibers (>2 nuclei) in control and Li-SWT myoblasts, thus cells had maintained their capacity to differentiate after Li-SWT. b The fraction of MYOG positive nuclei was significantly lower in Li-SWT cultures on day 2 during differentiation. However on day 4 and 6, the MYOG fractions were not changed by Li-SWT. c Immunohistochemical stainings for MYOG on day 2 after Li-SWT.n = 3, * p < 0.05
