Expression of growth-related factors in skeletal muscle of Pirarucu (Arapaima gigas) during growth
The skeletal muscle of the species Arapaima gigas (pirarucu) constitutes the major edible part of the fish and is, therefore, an important protein source for human consumption. Post-natal muscle growth is regulated by the ...
Down-regulation of MyoD gene expression in rat diaphragm muscle with heart failure
Differential Expression of Myogenic Regulatory Factor Genes in the Skeletal Muscles of Tambaqui Colossoma macropomum (Cuvier 1818) from Amazonian Black and Clear Water
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-01-01)
Hypothesizing that the Amazonian water system differences would affect the expression of muscle growth-related genes in juvenile tambaqui Colossoma macropomum (Cuvier 1818), this study aimed to analyze the morphometric ...
Differential morphofunctional characteristics and gene expression in fast and slow muscle of rats with monocrotaline-induced heart failure
Heart failure (HF) is characterized by limited exercise tolerance, skeletal muscle atrophy, a shift toward fast muscle fiber, and myogenic regulatory factor (MRF) changes. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) also contribute to ...
Growth hormone attenuates skeletal muscle changes in experimental chronic heart failure
(Churchill Livingstone, 2010-04-01)
Objective: This study evaluated the effects of growth hormone (GH) on morphology and myogenic regulatory factors (MRF) gene expression in skeletal muscle of rats with ascending aortic stenosis (AAS) induced chronic heart ...
Maternal protein restriction induce skeletal muscle changes without altering the MRFs MyoD and myogenin expression in offspring
Stimuli during pregnancy, such as protein restriction, can affect morphophysiological parameters in the offspring with consequences in adulthood. The phenomenon known as fetal programming can cause short- and long-term ...
