Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to determine whether transgenic (Tg) rats that constitutively overexpress HIV-1 viral proteins exhibit muscle wasting and to elucidate putative mechanisms. Over 7 mo, Tg(More)

Inhibition of protein synthesis resides in the process of mRNA translation. The present set of experiments were designed to examine the potential regulatory effect of chronic alcohol consumption on mammalian target of rapamycin(More)
