Molecules modulating gene transcription during muscle wasting in cancer, sepsis, and other critical illness.

Abstract

Muscle wasting in patients with sepsis, severe injury, and cancer is associated with increased transcription of several genes regulating different proteolytic pathways. The involvement of gene activation in muscle wasting suggests that transcription factors and nuclear cofactors play important roles in the regulation of muscle mass. Among transcription… (More)
