FRIDAY, April 12, 2019 — If you want to celebrate many more birthdays, new research suggests you should speed up your weight-lifting routine. Boosting muscle power, which is different than muscle strength, translated into longer lives, the Brazilian scientists said. What exactly is the difference? For example, climbing stairs requires muscle power — the faster […]Continue Reading ...
It is common knowledge that as people grow older they lose a large part of their muscle mass – and neither are their bones what they once were. Researchers from Aarhus University, Denmark, working together with researchers at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam have now studied a new group of medication which could prove beneficial […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have discovered the underlying cause of a hereditary muscle disease first characterised in a Swedish family in 1980. It proves to be the first identified disease caused by defective myoglobin, the protein that transports oxygen in muscle cells. The study is published in Nature Communications. Sarcoplasmic body myopathy (SBM) was first […]Continue Reading ...
A University of Texas at Arlington College of Nursing and Health Innovation professor will use a series of grants totaling approximately $6.575 million during the next five years to attack a variety of debilitating musculoskeletal diseases. Marco Brotto–the George W. and Hazel M. Jay Professor in the college, and an internationally renowned scientist and an […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers have found that muscle fatigue caused by overexertion when practicing a skill can affect the task in hand and impair learning afterwards. The findings, published in the open-access journal eLife, suggest that the common practice of training beyond fatigue should be reconsidered as it could do more harm than good. The saying goes that […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers from Osaka University find that increased muscle mass improves your chances of responding favorably to cancer treatment As far back as Ancient Greece, a sculptured physique has been heralded as the pinnacle of physical perfection. But now, researchers from Japan have found that increased muscle mass doesn’t just make you look good, it could […]Continue Reading ...
Rotator cuff tears are common injuries, and proper healing of the shoulder muscle is often difficult. “Chronic tears often result in fat accumulation within the rotator cuff muscles, resulting in negative clinical outcomes, including weakening and atrophy of the muscles,” says Manuel Schubert, M.D., resident in orthopedic surgery at Michigan Medicine. “It’s believed that this […]Continue Reading ...
The University of Minnesota Medical School continues its legacy of advancing cell replacement therapies with a scientific breakthrough that highlights the promise of cell therapies for muscular dystrophy. The research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) allows authors Tania Incitti, Ph.D., Post-Doctoral Associate, and Rita […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience of the Higher School of Economics have proposed to train transplanted muscles in advance with new movements so that the brain can learn to use them more quickly after autotransplantation. The results of the study on the prospects of this approach were published in the article ‘Perspectives for […]Continue Reading ...
Mar 25 2019 Popeye was on to something. Eating just one cup of leafy green vegetables like spinach each day may help maintain muscle strength and mobility into old age. Eating leafy green vegetables like spinach could help maintain muscle strength into old age. Researchers from Edith Cowan University tracked the diets of 1420 West […]Continue Reading ...
Of the 30 million Americans with diabetes, 90 to 95 percent have type 2, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. New research shows building muscle strength may be one way to lower risk for the disease. The study of more than 4,500 adults found moderate muscle mass reduced the risk for type […]Continue Reading ...
A recent review of published data indicates that protein ingested prior to overnight sleep stimulates protein synthesis. A bedtime protein shake could, therefore, help build muscles mass after resistance exercise and prevent muscle wastage in the elderly. Vergani Fotografia | Shutterstock The synergistic effect between nutrition and exercise on the synthesis of muscle protein […]Continue Reading ...
A single heart muscle cell (at x2000 magnification) : the red calcium indicator lines up precisely between the green stripes, which mark where the muscles’ contractive machinery is anchored. In every heartbeat, the distance between the green bands (which are just 2 micrometres apart, or about 1/40 the thickness of a human hair) reduces by just […]Continue Reading ...
Diabetes mellitus is associated with various health problems including decline in skeletal muscle mass. A research group led by Professor Wataru Ogawa at the Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine revealed that elevation of blood sugar levels leads to muscle atrophy and that two proteins, WWP1 and KLF15, play key roles in this phenomenon. These […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common genetic disease of the heart and a leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young people and athletes. Scientists have long known that the condition’s cardinal feature—an unusually thick heart muscle that contracts and relaxes abnormally—is fueled by some glitch in the heart’s molecular […]Continue Reading ...
