Scientists find that key gene activates muscle growth For decades, scientists have searched for treatments for myopathies — genetic muscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy and ALS, also called Lou Gehrig's disease. Now, an interdisciplinary team of researchers from Arizona State and Stanford Universities, and the University of Arizona, has discovered a new avenue to search for treatment possibilities. The team's research findings are featured in an article in this week's early...

Inhibiting Natural Molecules Found In Body Could Prevent Muscle Loss
2012-12-19 15:09:07

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A study may be paving the way for finding ways to prevent muscle loss, obesity and diabetes. Researchers from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) found that by inhibiting a particular molecule produced naturally in the body, muscle loss due to aging or illness can be prevented. By blocking this same molecule, it triggers the body to go into a "fat-burning mode" which will fight obesity, and also treat the most common form of...

Key Part Of Old Mystery In Generating Muscle Mass Solved
2012-09-28 11:36:42

Implications for treating muscular dystrophy and other muscle wasting diseases Working with mice, Johns Hopkins researchers have solved a key part of a muscle regeneration mystery plaguing scientists for years, adding strong support to the theory that muscle mass can be built without a complete, fully functional supply of muscle stem cells. "This is good news for those with muscular dystrophy and other muscle wasting disorders that involve diminished stem cell function," says Se-Jin...

The study of muscular system protein myostatin has been of great interest to researchers as a potential therapeutic target for people with muscular disorders. Although much is known about how myostatin affects muscle growth, there has been disagreement about what types of muscle cells it acts upon. New research from a team including Carnegie's Chen-Ming Fan and Christoph Lepper narrows down the field to one likely type of cell. Their work is published the week of August 6 by Proceedings of...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) — 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. It turns out that a tiny inhibitor may be responsible for how strong and powerful our muscles can be. This is the surprising conclusion reached by scientists in EPFL's Laboratory of Integrative Systems Physiology (LISP), in collaboration with a group in the...

Salk scientists and their collaborators find new avenue for treating muscle degeneration in people who can't exercise 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. The project was a collaboration between researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and two Swiss institutions, Ecole...

Belgian Blue Cattle
2014-07-09 14:37:46

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...
