Angiotensin II induced catabolic effect and muscle atrophy are redox dependent.

Abstract

Angiotensin II (Ang II) causes skeletal muscle wasting via an increase in muscle catabolism. To determine whether the wasting effects of Ang II were related to its ability to increase NADPH oxidase-derived reactive oxygen species (ROS) we infused wild-type C57BL/6J or p47(phox)(-/-) mice with vehicle or Ang II for 7days. Superoxide production was increased… (More)
