Solitary accessory and papillary muscle hypertrophy manifested as dynamic mid-wall obstruction and symptomatic heart failure: diagnostic feasibility by multi-modality imaging.
 

Author(s): Kuo-Tzu Sung, Chun-Ho Yun, Charles Jia-Yin Hou, Chung-Lieh Hung

Journal:

 

Solitary papillary muscle (PM) hypertrophy is an unique type of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is characterized by predominant papillary muscle hypertrophy sparing the rest of other left ventricular segments. It has recently drawn our attention about the mechanism of left ...

An antibody blocking activin type II receptors induces strong skeletal muscle hypertrophy and protects from atrophy.
 

Author(s): Estelle Lach-Trifilieff, Giulia C Minetti, KellyAnn Sheppard, Chikwendu Ibebunjo, Jerome N Feige, Steffen Hartmann, Sophie Brachat, Helene Rivet, Claudia Koelbing, Frederic Morvan, Shinji Hatakeyama, David J Glass

Journal: Mol. Cell. Biol.. 2014 Feb;34(4):606-18.

 

The myostatin/activin type II receptor (ActRII) pathway has been identified to be critical in regulating skeletal muscle size. Several other ligands, including GDF11 and the activins, signal through this pathway, suggesting that the ActRII receptors are major regulatory nodes in the ...

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 ...

Muscle plasticity and β₂-adrenergic receptors: adaptive responses of β₂-adrenergic receptor expression to muscle hypertrophy and atrophy.
 

Author(s): Shogo Sato, Ken Shirato, Kaoru Tachiyashiki, Kazuhiko Imaizumi

Journal: J. Biomed. Biotechnol.. 2011 ;2011():729598.

 

We discuss the functional roles of β₂-adrenergic receptors in skeletal muscle hypertrophy and atrophy as well as the adaptive responses of β₂-adrenergic receptor expression to anabolic and catabolic conditions. β₂-Adrenergic receptor stimulation using anabolic drugs increases ...
