    miRNAs (microRNAs) are novel post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression. Several miRNAs, expressed exclusively in muscle, play important roles during muscle development, growth and regeneration; other ubiquitously expressed miRNAs are also essential for muscle function. In the present...

    Background: Skeletal muscle mass is controlled by myostatin and Akt-dependent signaling on mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) and forkhead box O (FoxO) pathways, but it is unknown how these pathways are regulated in critically ill human muscle. To...

  • GH-IGF system regulation of attenuated muscle growth and lipolysis in Atlantic salmon reared at elevated sea temperatures. Hevrøy, Ernst; Hunskår, Christine; Gelder, Stefan; Shimizu, Munetaka; Waagbø, Rune; Breck, Olav; Takle, Harald; Sussort, Sissel; Hansen, Tom // Journal of Comparative Physiology B: Biochemical, Systemic & Env;Feb2013, Vol. 183 Issue 2, p243 

    Growth regulation in adult Atlantic salmon (1.6 kg) was investigated during 45 days in seawater at 13, 15, 17, and 19 °C. We focused on feed intake, nutrient uptake, nutrient utilization, and endocrine regulation through growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factors (IGF), and IGF-binding...

    We addressed the question of whether hypertrophy induced by compensatory overload differs according to innervation status, and how fibroblast growth factors (FGF) and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) mRNAs are expressed in the rat plantaris muscle during overload (OL) and/or denervation. Male...

    During the development and regeneration of skeletal muscle, many growth factors, such as basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF, FGF-2) and myostatin, have been shown to play regulating roles. bFGF contributes to promote proliferation and to inhibit differentiation of skeletal muscle, whereas...

    Background: Growing evidence suggests that small-interfering RNA (siRNA) can promote gene silencing in mammalian cells without induction of interferon synthesis or nonspecific gene suppression. Recently, a number of highly specific siRNAs targeted against disease-causing or disease-promoting...

    Purpose: Obesity is a major risk factor for asthma and it influences airway smooth muscle function and responsiveness. Adiponectin is inversely associated with obesity and its action is mediated through at least 2 cell membrane receptors (AdipoR1 and AdipoR2). Leptin is positively associated...

    Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) play critical roles in a number of diseases; however, the molecular mechanism underlying their development is unclear. Although the role of TGFβ1 signaling in SMC development is well established, the downstream molecular signals are not fully understood. We used...
