We present a detailed characterization of fibronectin (FN) adsorption and cell adhesion on poly(ethyl acrylate) (PEA) and poly(methyl acrylate) (PMA), two polymers with very similar physicochemical properties and chemical structure, which differ in one single methyl group in the lateral chain of the polymer. The globular solution conformation of FN was(More)
Myostatin (mstn) blockade, resulting in muscle hypertrophy, is a promising therapy to counteract age-related muscle loss. However, oxidative and mitochondrial deficit observed in young mice with myostatin inhibition could be detrimental with aging. The aim of this study was (a) to bring original data on metabolic and mitochondrial consequences of mstn(More)
While myostatin gene deletion is a promising therapy to fight muscle loss during aging, this approach induces also skeletal muscle metabolic changes such as mitochondrial deficits, redox alteration and increased fatigability. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of aging on these features in aged wild-type (WT) and mstn knockout (KO) mice.(More)
