Development of an UPLC mass spectrometry method for measurement of myofibrillar protein synthesis: application to analysis of murine muscles during cancer cachexia.


Cachexia, characterized by skeletal muscle mass loss, is a major contributory factor to patient morbidity and mortality during cancer. However, there are no reports on the rate of myofibrillar protein synthesis (MPS) in skeletal muscles that vary in primary metabolic phenotype during cachexia, in large part because of the small-size muscles and regional… (More)
