Glutamine prevents myostatin hyperexpression and protein hypercatabolism induced in C2C12 myotubes by tumor necrosis factor-α


Depletion of skeletal muscle protein mainly results from enhanced protein breakdown, caused by activation of proteolytic systems such as the Ca2+-dependent and the ATP-ubiquitin-dependent ones. In the last few years, enhanced expression and bioactivity of myostatin have been reported in several pathologies characterized by marked skeletal muscle depletion… (More)
