CARP, ankrd-2/Arpp, and DARP, are three members of a conserved gene family, referred to here as MARPs (muscle ankyrin repeat proteins). The expression of MARPs is induced upon injury and hypertrophy (CARP), stretch or denervation (ankrd2/Arpp), and during recovery following starvation (DARP), suggesting that they are involved in muscle stress response(More)
Despite widespread controversy still surrounding the phenomenon, stepwise shortening has now been confirmed by five independent methods in this laboratory, and by several other methods in different laboratories. In this paper we offer preliminary evidence obtained with the most recent method--measurement of 'isotonic muscle length transients'. We find that(More)
