Regulation of ubiquitin–proteasome system, caspase enzyme activities, and extracellular proteinases in rat soleus muscle in response to unloading

Abstract

In the present study, we determined the impact of 5 and 10 days of muscle deconditioning induced by hindlimb suspension (HS) on the ubiquitin–proteasome system of protein degradation and caspase enzyme activities in rat soleus muscles. A second goal was to determine whether activities of matrix metalloproteinase-2/9 (MMP-2/9) and urokinase-type/tissue-type… (More)
