Advancing age is associated with a reduction in skeletal muscle protein, muscle strength, muscle quality, and chemical modifications that may impair protein function. Sarcopenia has been coupled with physical disability, frailty, and a loss of independent function. Using stable isotope tracer methodologies and mass spectrometric detection, we observed: (a) 76-92-year-old physically frail and 62-74-year-old middle-age adults have lower mixed muscle protein synthetic rates than 20-32-year-old men… CONTINUE READING
