Latest Myostatin Stories
CLEVELAND and COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct.
For decades, scientists have searched for treatments for myopathies — genetic muscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy and ALS, also called Lou Gehrig's disease.
Researchers found that by inhibiting a particular molecule produced naturally in the body, muscle loss due to aging or illnesses can be prevented.
Implications for treating muscular dystrophy and other muscle wasting diseases
The study of muscular system protein myostatin has been of great interest to researchers as a potential therapeutic target for people with muscular disorders.
Super strong mice and marathon mice and nematodes were created by reducing the function of a natural inhibitor, suggesting treatments for age-related or genetically caused muscle degeneration are within reach.
An international team of scientists has created super-strong, high-endurance mice and worms by suppressing a natural muscle-growth inhibitor, suggesting treatments for age-related or genetics-related muscle degeneration are within reach.
A team of researchers at EPFL, the University of Lausanne and the Salk Institute created super strong, marathon mice and nematodes by reducing the function of a natural inhibitor, suggesting treatments for age-related or genetically caused muscle degeneration are within reach.
The Belgian Blue is a breed of beef cattle originating in Belgium. It was developed in the 1800s by crossbreeding local cattle with a Shorthorn breed from the United Kingdom. It is quite possible that the Charolais cattle was also used in the development of the Belgian Blue. A modern breed of the Belgian blue was developed in the 1950s by Professor Hanset while working at an artificial insemination facility in the Liege province. The breed was introduced to the United States in 1978 by...
