In animals, microRNAs (miRNAs) generally repress gene expression by binding to sites in the 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of target mRNAs. miRNAs have also been reported to repress or activate gene expression by binding to 5'-UTR sites, but the extent of such regulation and the factors that govern these different responses are unknown. Liver-specific miR-122(More)
AIM Muscle weakness is a feature of individuals with spastic cerebral palsy (SCP) but there are few reports in the literature of muscle volume in this group. This study compares muscle volumes in adolescents and young adults with SCP with those of their typically developing (TD) peers. DESIGN Measurements of the volumes of nine major lower limb muscles in(More)
BACKGROUND It is known that individuals with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy (BSCP) have small and weak muscles. However, no studies to date have investigated intramuscular fat infiltration in this group. The objective of this study is to determine whether adults with BSCP have greater adiposity in and around their skeletal muscles than their typically(More)
