Mechanisms for fiber-type specificity of skeletal muscle atrophy.


PURPOSE OF REVIEW There are a variety of pathophysiologic conditions that are known to induce skeletal muscle atrophy. However, muscle wasting can occur through multiple distinct signaling pathways with differential sensitivity between selective skeletal muscle fiber subtypes. This review summarizes some of the underlying molecular mechanisms responsible… (More)
