THE PLASTICITY OF SKELETAL muscle continues to fascinate physiologists and cell biologists. Many of the key molecules in the pathways that signal growth or atrophy of muscle have been identified, along with a number of hormones and growth factors that regulate these pathways. This knowledge may enable us to more effectively prevent or reverse muscle atrophy associated with a number of conditions: cancer, muscular dystrophies, old age, inability to maintain normal activity, glucocorticoid… CONTINUE READING
