The acute satellite cell response and skeletal muscle hypertrophy following resistance training.
 

Author(s): Leeann M Bellamy, Sophie Joanisse, Amanda Grubb, Cameron J Mitchell, Bryon R McKay, Stuart M Phillips, Steven Baker, Gianni Parise

Journal:

 

The extent of skeletal muscle hypertrophy in response to resistance training is highly variable in humans. The main objective of this study was to explain the nature of this variability. More specifically, we focused on the myogenic stem cell population, the satellite cell (SC) as ...

Loss of nNOS inhibits compensatory muscle hypertrophy and exacerbates inflammation and eccentric contraction-induced damage in mdx mice.
 

Author(s): Stanley C Froehner, Sarah M Reed, Kendra N Anderson, Paul L Huang, Justin M Percival

Journal: Hum. Mol. Genet.. 2015 Jan;24(2):492-505.

 

Approaches targeting nitric oxide (NO) signaling show promise as therapies for Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies. However, the mechanisms by which NO benefits dystrophin-deficient muscle remain unclear, but may involve nNOSĪ², a newly discovered enzymatic source of NO in skeletal ...

Skeletal muscle hypertrophy after aerobic exercise training.
 

Author(s): Adam R Konopka, Matthew P Harber

Journal: Exerc Sport Sci Rev. 2014 Apr;42(2):53-61.

 

Current dogma suggests that aerobic exercise training has minimal effects on skeletal muscle size. We and others have demonstrated that aerobic exercise acutely and chronically alters protein metabolism and induces skeletal muscle hypertrophy. These findings promote an antithesis ...

Possibility of leg muscle hypertrophy by ambulation in older adults: a brief review.
 

Author(s): Hayao Ozaki, Jeremy P Loenneke, Robert S Thiebaud, Joel M Stager, Takashi Abe

Journal: Clin Interv Aging. 2013 ;8():369-75.

 

It is known that ambulatory exercises such as brisk walking and jogging are potent stimuli for improving aerobic capacity, but it is less understood whether ambulatory exercise can increase leg muscle size and function. The purpose of this brief review is to discuss whether or not ...

cAMP signaling in skeletal muscle adaptation: hypertrophy, metabolism, and regeneration.
 

Author(s): Rebecca Berdeaux, Randi Stewart

Journal: Am. J. Physiol. Endocrinol. Metab.. 2012 Jul;303(1):E1-17.

 

Among organ systems, skeletal muscle is perhaps the most structurally specialized. The remarkable subcellular architecture of this tissue allows it to empower movement with instructions from motor neurons. Despite this high degree of specialization, skeletal muscle also has intrinsic ...
