Infographic: NC1184: Molecular Mechanisms Regulating Skeletal Muscle Growth and Differentiation
By: Sally E Johnson
One of the longest standing regional projects, the NC1184 group consists of 26 member agriculture experiment stations with a rich history of benchtop discovery in muscle biology with translation to the meat and livestock production sectors. The multidisciplinary efforts are focused on
- The molecular mechanisms controlling skeletal muscle tissue growth, development and composition.
- Signal transduction pathways that regulate skeletal muscle metabolism.
- Mechanisms of protein synthesis and degradation in skeletal muscle.
