Skeletal muscles adapt to changes in their workload by regulating fibre size by unknown mechanisms. [...] Key Method The roles of two signalling pathways implicated in muscle hypertrophy on the basis of findings in vitro, Akt/mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) and calcineurin/NFAT (nuclear factor of activated T cells), were investigated in several models of skeletal muscle hypertrophy and atrophy in vivo. The Akt/mTOR pathway was upregulated during hypertrophy and downregulated during muscle atrophy…Expand

TLDR
Observations suggest that the load-induced activation of mTOR signaling occurs independently of Akt1 regulation and thatAkt1 plays a critical role in regulating satellite cell proliferation during load- induced muscle hypertrophy. Expand
mTORC1 Promotes Denervation-Induced Muscle Atrophy Through a Mechanism Involving the Activation of FoxO and E3 Ubiquitin Ligases
TLDR
It is found that at later stages after denervation of fast-twitch muscle, activation of mTORC1 contributed to atrophy and that denervation-induced atrophy was mitigated by inhibition of m TORC1 with rapamycin, which represents a potential therapeutic target in neurogenic muscle atrophy. Expand
Transient activation of mTORC1 signaling in skeletal muscle is independent of Akt1 regulation
TLDR
Observations show that the upstream IGF‐1/Akt1 regulation is dispensable for the acute activation of mTORC1 signaling and regulation of satellite cells in response to mechanical overload. Expand
Involvement of PI3K/Akt/TOR pathway in stretch‐induced hypertrophy of myotubes
TLDR
It is found that cyclic stretching of myotubes activates the PI3K/Akt/TOR pathway, resulting in musclehypertrophy, and the MEK/ERK pathway may contribute negatively to spontaneous hypertrophy. Expand
The missing Akt in the mechanical regulation of skeletal muscle mTORC1 signalling and growth
TLDR
Miyazaki and colleagues demonstrate in vivo that early mTORC1 activation and muscle growth following mechanical overload in C57BL/6J mice is also independent of IGF-1/PI3K/Akt signalling, the first evidence in skeletal muscle indicating that MEK/ERK signalling can regulate m TORC1 activity by phosphorylating TSC2 at the serine 664 site. Expand
Role of Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) in Muscle Growth
TLDR
This review focuses on most recent progress in the understanding of mTOR signaling mechanisms, which regulate skeletal muscle hypertrophy and atrophy, and the cross-regulation between the two systems. Expand
Regulation of muscle hypertrophy: Involvement of the Akt-independent pathway and satellite cells in muscle hypertrophy.
Skeletal muscles are composed of multinuclear cells called myofibers and have unique abilities, one of which is plasticity. In response to the mechanical load induced by physical activity, skeletalExpand
Mechanotransduction pathways in skeletal muscle hypertrophy
TLDR
This point-of-view paper is to highlight mechanotransduction events, with focus on the mechanisms of mTORC1 and PA activation, and the role of IGF-1 on hypertrophy process. Expand

TLDR
Findings show that myostatin signaling acts by blocking genes induced during differentiation, even in a myotube, as opposed to activating the distinct "atrophy program," which is implicated most prominently downstream of Insulin-like growth factor 1 signaling. Expand
Role of Mammalian Target of Rapamycin in Muscle Growth
Abstract Increase in muscle mass, or hypertrophy, in adults comes as a result of an increase in the size, as opposed to the number, of prenatally formed skeletal muscle fibers. The mammalian targetExpand

Mediation of IGF-1-induced skeletal myotube hypertrophy by PI(3)K/Akt/mTOR and PI(3)K/Akt/GSK3 pathways
TLDR
It is shown that Akt promotes hypertrophy by activating downstream signalling pathways previously implicated in activating protein synthesis: the pathways downstream of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and the pathway activated by phosphorylating and thereby inhibiting glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3). Expand
Skeletal muscle hypertrophy is mediated by a Ca2+-dependent calcineurin signalling pathway
TLDR
It is proposed that growth-factor-induced skeletal-muscle hypertrophy and changes in myofibre phenotype are mediated by calcium mobilization and are critically regulated by the calcineurin/NF-ATc1 signalling pathway. Expand
Calcineurin Is Required for Skeletal Muscle Hypertrophy*
TLDR
Administration of the specific calcineurin inhibitors cyclosporin (CsA) or FK506 to mice prevented the rapid doubling of mass and individual fiber size and the 4–20-fold increase in the number of slow fibers that characterize this condition. Expand
IGF-1 induces skeletal myocyte hypertrophy through calcineurin in association with GATA-2 and NF-ATc1
TLDR
It is shown that the molecular pathways underlying the hypertrophic action of IGF-1 in skeletal muscle are similar to those responsible for cardiac hypertrophy. Expand
Stimulation of Slow Skeletal Muscle Fiber Gene Expression by Calcineurin in Vivo *
TLDR
It is demonstrated that calcineurin activation is sufficient to induce the slow fiber gene regulatory program in vivo and suggest that additional signals are required for skeletal muscle hypertrophy. Expand
A Calcineurin-Dependent Transcriptional Pathway for Cardiac Hypertrophy
TLDR
It is shown that cardiac hypertrophy is induced by the calcium-dependent phosphatase calcineurin, which dephosphorylates the transcription factor NF-AT3, enabling it to translocate to the nucleus. Expand
Localized Igf-1 transgene expression sustains hypertrophy and regeneration in senescent skeletal muscle
TLDR
A model of persistent, functional myocyte hypertrophy is generated using a tissue-restricted transgene encoding a locally acting isoform of insulin-like growth factor-1 that is expressed in skeletal muscle (mIgf-1) and suggests clinical strategies for the treatment of age or disease-related muscle frailty. Expand
Matching of Calcineurin Activity to Upstream Effectors Is Critical for Skeletal Muscle Fiber Growth
TLDR
Findings provide evidence that both calcineurin and its activity-linked upstream signaling elements are crucial for muscle adaptations to OV and that, unless significantly compromised, endogenous levels of this enzyme can accommodate large fluctuations in upstream calcium-dependent signaling events. Expand
Satellite cell activity is required for hypertrophy of overloaded adult rat muscle
TLDR
The results indicate that satellite cell activation, division, and fusion is necessary for compensatory hypertrophy of fully mature muscle, and may be important to the understanding of the limits of recovery of inherited muscle myopathies treated by myogenic cell implantation. Expand
Differentiation stage-specific inhibition of the Raf-MEK-ERK pathway by Akt.
TLDR
The stage-specific inhibitory action of Akt correlated with its stage- specific ability to form a complex with Raf, suggesting the existence of differentially expressed mediators of an inhibitory Akt-Raf complex. Expand
