Effects of Dietary Leucine Supplementation on Muscle Mass and Markers of Protein Degradation in Overloaded Skeletal Muscles of Young Adult and Aged Rats
(East Carolina University, 2011)
The hypertrophic response to overload in fast-twitch skeletal muscle is impaired in aged humans and rats, and upregulation of protein degradation pathways are hypothesized to be a contributing factor. Muscle growth occurs ...
Paired Effects of Dietary Leucine Supplementation and Overload on Protein Translational Signaling and Hypertrophy in Aged Rat Skeletal Muscle
(East Carolina University, 2012)
Sarcopenia is an age-associated disorder that causes loss of skeletal muscle mass, particularly in type II (fast-twitch) muscle fibers. This loss in muscle mass can cause disability, reductions in the quality of life, and ...
