Alpha1a-Adrenoceptor Genetic Variant Triggers Vascular Smooth Muscle Cell Hyperproliferation and Agonist Induced Hypertrophy via EGFR Transactivation Pathway.
 

Author(s): Irina Gradinaru, Ekaterina Babaeva, Debra A Schwinn, Anush Oganesian

Journal:

 

α1a Adrenergic receptors (α1aARs) are the predominant AR subtype in human vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs). α1aARs in resistance vessels are crucial in the control of blood pressure, yet the impact of naturally occurring human α1aAR genetic variants in cardiovascular disorders ...

Increased IGF-IEc expression and mechano-growth factor production in intestinal muscle of fibrostenotic Crohn's disease and smooth muscle hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): Chao Li, Kent Vu, Krystina Hazelgrove, John F Kuemmerle

Journal: Am. J. Physiol. Gastrointest. Liver Physiol.. 2015 Dec;309(11):G888-99.

 

The igf1 gene is alternatively spliced as IGF-IEa and IGF-IEc variants in humans. In fibrostenotic Crohn's disease, the fibrogenic cytokine TGF-β1 induces IGF-IEa expression and IGF-I production in intestinal smooth muscle and results in muscle hyperplasia and collagen I production ...

Muscle memory and a new cellular model for muscle atrophy and hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): Kristian Gundersen

Journal: J. Exp. Biol.. 2016 Jan;219(Pt 2):235-42.

 

Memory is a process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. For vertebrates, the modern view has been that it occurs only in the brain. This review describes a cellular memory in skeletal muscle in which hypertrophy is 'remembered' such that a fibre that has previously ...

The molecular basis for load-induced skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): George R Marcotte, Daniel W D West, Keith Baar

Journal: Calcif. Tissue Int.. 2015 Mar;96(3):196-210.

 

In a mature (weight neutral) animal, an increase in muscle mass only occurs when the muscle is loaded sufficiently to cause an increase in myofibrillar protein balance. A tight relationship between muscle hypertrophy, acute increases in protein balance, and the activity of the mechanistic ...

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 ...
