Researchers Help Develop A Dynamic Model Of Tissue Failure
2013-12-12 17:45:57

University of Pennsylvania The idea of growing replacement tissue to repair an organ, or to swap it out for an entirely new one, is rapidly transitioning from science fiction to fact. Tissue engineering techniques are improving in their ability to generate three-dimensional masses of cells and provide them with vascular systems for keeping them alive, but a more mathematically rigorous approach for designing these tissues is still needed. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania,...

Molecular Muscles Inside Cells Help Them Sense, Respond To Their Environments
2013-10-21 07:27:59

Johns Hopkins Medicine Johns Hopkins researchers used suction to learn that individual "molecular muscles" within cells respond to different types of force, a finding that may explain how cells "feel" the environment and appropriately adapt their shapes and activities. A summary of the discovery, published online Oct. 20 in the journal Nature Materials, specifically sheds light on how forces outside of cells are translated into internal signals. A computer model the researchers...

New Research Challenges 50 Years Of Muscle Knowledge
2013-07-10 10:54:49

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For the past 50 years, scientists and health professionals have operated with the knowledge that biceps are packed with long ropes of filaments. When the bicep is used to lift a heavy object or flex, these filaments were understood to shorten or contract the muscle and give it its power. A new study from the University of Washington (UW) challenges this notion, saying that while the general idea of filaments contracting is the same,...

Muscle Massage and Muscle Recovery Link and its results as evident from various studies has finally been revealed. Experts agree that rubbing the muscles can help speed up the healing process as revealed on Quickmusclebuildingtips.com. Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 18, 2012 Muscle massage and muscle recovery link as well the benefits of a muscle massage were recently discovered by researchers from Ontario and California. They found clear molecular signs that overworked muscle cells respond to...

Chemical Found In Lipstick Could Damage Heart
2012-08-14 13:37:51

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers found a commonly used chemical in household products may cause heart and muscle problems. Triclosan is found in hundreds of products like lipsticks, face washes and toothpaste, but the fact that it is abundant doesn't mean it is safe. The chemical can hinder the process by which muscles, including the heart, receive signals from the brain. Researchers performed tests on mice and noticed a dramatic 25 percent...

Whether you´re old, have been ill, or suffered an injury, you´ve watched gloomily as your muscles have atrophied. The deterioration of muscle–even slight or gradual–is about as common to the human condition as breathing. Yet despite its everyday nature, scientists know little about what causes skeletal muscles to atrophy. They know proteins are responsible, but there are thousands of possible suspects, and parsing the key actors from the poseurs is tricky. In a new...

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...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Cold feet are often equated to cowardice or second-thoughts when it comes to making a life-changing decision, such as going through with a marriage. Cold feet can also be more than just a joke people tell to be folksy. In fact, many people complain about their cold feet or the cold feet of a partner. Now, some physiologists have set their brains about figuring out why some people constantly have cold feet, saying a biological mechanism...

Key To Performance For Elite Sprinters Is Running Mechanics, Not Metabolism
2012-08-01 14:25:39

Sprinting performance isn´t a factor of conserving energy; rather, forces applied by the foot hitting the ground maximize all-out bursts of sprinting Sprinters competing in the 2012 Olympics might assume their championship performance is the result of their fuel-efficient physiology. But a new study disproves the classic scientific view that conserving energy maximizes performance in a sprinting event. The study by biomechanics researchers Matthew W. Bundle at the University of...
