Skeletal muscle molecular responses to resistance training and dietary supplementation in COPD.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Skeletal muscle dysfunction is a systemic feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), contributing to morbidity and mortality. Physical training improves muscle mass and function in COPD, but the molecular regulation therein is poorly understood. METHODS Candidate genes and proteins regulating muscle protein breakdown (ubiquitin… (More)
