“Role of MicroRNAs on Age and Contraction-induced Skeletal Muscle Growth”
Sarcopenia is a predictor of functional-limitation, leading to loss of independence, lowered quality of life, and ultimately death. The impaired ability of aged skeletal muscle to adapt to anabolic stimulation may be a factor that contributes to sarcopenia. This project will provide novel insights into the role of microRNA in the attenuation of aging skeletal muscle to changes in gene expression after anabolic stimulation.
