AMP-activated protein kinase response to contractions and treatment with the AMPK activator AICAR in young adult and old skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2009-05-01)
One characteristic of aging skeletal muscle is a decline in mitochondrial function. Activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK)occurs in response to an increased AMP/ATP ratio,which is one potential result of ...
Impaired overload-induced muscle growth is associated with diminished translational signalling in aged rat fast-twitch skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2006-07-01)
Impaired overload-induced protein synthesis and growth in aged fast-twitch skeletal muscle may result from diminished responsiveness of signalling intermediates controlling protein translation. Yet, potential age-related ...
