Skeletal muscle wasting in cachexia and sarcopenia: molecular pathophysiology and impact of exercise training

Abstract

Skeletal muscle provides a fundamental basis for human function, enabling locomotion and respiration. Transmission of external stimuli to intracellular effector proteins via signalling pathways is a highly regulated and controlled process that determines muscle mass by balancing protein synthesis and protein degradation. An impaired balance between protein… (More)
