Lastly, it should be noted that the shifts in heart rate and stroke volume could coincide with the pacemaker of the heart switching from a myogenic to a neurogenic mechanism of cardiac regulation (Yamagishi, 1990; Yamagishi and Hirose, 1992; Chapman and Reiber, 1998; Harper and Reiber, 2000).

There are two mechanisms believed to be involved in this autoregulatory phenomena: the myogenic and the tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) mechanisms.

The composition of the myogenic differentiation medium used in this experiment is shown in [Table 1].
These cells are located between muscle fibers and exist as a heterogeneous population that need to "self-renew" to maintain the stem cell population, as well as differentiate into myogenic cells that proliferate, differentiate, and fuse to create new muscle fibers.
It can also be classified on the basis of etiology into various groups such as myogenic, mechanical, neurogenic, aponeurotic and traumatic.
The mechanisms by which Cr affects the growth and differentiation of myogenic cells are complex and probably not yet completely understood [12].
