The α₇β₁-integrin increases muscle hypertrophy following multiple bouts of eccentric exercise.

Abstract

Mechanical stimuli increase skeletal muscle growth in a mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR)- and p70(S6K)-dependent manner. It has been proposed that costameric proteins at Z bands may sense and transfer tension to these initiators of protein translation, but few candidates have been identified. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a role… (More)
