Skeletal muscle stem cells from animals I. Basic cell biology.
MetadataShow full item record
Skeletal muscle stem cells from food-producing animals are of interest to agricultural life scientists seeking to develop a better understanding of the molecular regulation of lean tissue (skeletal muscle protein hypertrophy) and intramuscular fat (marbling) development. Enhanced understanding of muscle stem cell biology and function is essential for developing technologies and strategies to augment the metabolic efficiency and muscle hypertrophy of growing animals potentially leading to greater efficiency and reduced environmental impacts of animal production, while concomitantly improving product uniformity and consumer acceptance and enjoyment of muscle foods.

Green tea extract and epigallocatechin gallate decrease muscle pathology and NF-ÎºB immunostaining in regenerating muscle fibers of mdx mice Evans, Nicholas Paul (Virginia Tech, 2009-09-25)Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a debilitating genetic disorder characterized by severe muscle wasting and early death in affected boys. The primary cause of this disease is mutations in the dystrophin gene resulting in the ...
Williams, Jay H.; Batts, Timothy W.; Lees, Simon (Hindawi, 2012-12-03)This investigation examined the effects of reduced muscle glycogen on exercise performance and muscle fatigue. Male rats were assigned to a low glycogen group (LG) that participated in a protocol of exercise and fasting, ...
Effects of Pre-exercise Muscle Glycogen Status on Muscle Phosphagens, Sarcoplasmic Reticulum Function, and Performance During Intermittent High Intensity Exercise Smith, Michelle R. (Virginia Tech, 1999-08-09)Eight competitive cyclists performed two cycling trials, one following a high carbohydrate diet (H-CHO) and the other following a low carbohydrate diet (L-CHO). Trials consisted of repeated 60s maximal effort sprints to ...
