Central peptidergic neurons are hyperactive during collateral sprouting and inhibition of activity suppresses sprouting. (1/2412)

Little is known regarding the effect of chronic changes in neuronal activity on the extent of collateral sprouting by identified CNS neurons. We have investigated the relationship between activity and sprouting in oxytocin (OT) and vasopressin (VP) neurons of the hypothalamic magnocellular neurosecretory system (MNS). Uninjured MNS neurons undergo a robust collateral-sprouting response that restores the axon population of the neural lobe (NL) after a lesion of the contralateral MNS (). Simultaneously, lesioned rats develop chronic urinary hyperosmolality indicative of heightened neurosecretory activity. We therefore tested the hypothesis that sprouting MNS neurons are hyperactive by measuring changes in cell and nuclear diameters, OT and VP mRNA pools, and axonal cytochrome oxidase activity (COX). Each of these measures was significantly elevated during the period of most rapid axonal growth between 1 and 4 weeks after the lesion, confirming that both OT and VP neurons are hyperactive while undergoing collateral sprouting. In a second study the hypothesis that chronic inhibition of neuronal activity would interfere with the sprouting response was tested. Chronic hyponatremia (CH) was induced 3 d before the hypothalamic lesion and sustained for 4 weeks to suppress neurosecretory activity. CH abolished the lesion-induced increases in OT and VP mRNA pools and virtually eliminated measurable COX activity in MNS terminals. Counts of the total number of axon profiles in the NL revealed that CH also prevented axonal sprouting from occurring. These results are consistent with the hypothesis that increased neuronal activity is required for denervation-induced collateral sprouting to occur in the MNS.  (+info)

Measurement of serum TSH in the investigation of patients presenting with thyroid enlargement. (2/2412)

In otherwise euthyroid patients presenting with thyroid enlargement, reduction in serum thyrotrophin (TSH) concentrations measured in a sensitive assay may be a marker of thyroid autonomy and may therefore indicate a benign underlying pathology. We investigated prospectively a cohort of 467 subjects presenting consecutively to our thyroid clinic with nodular or diffuse enlargement of the thyroid. Subjects were divided into those with normal (0.4-5.5 mU/l), low but detectable (0.1-0.39 mU/l) or undetectable (< 0.1 mU/l) serum TSH concentrations. The final pathological diagnosis was defined by fine-needle aspiration cytology and clinical follow-up of at least 2 years or by fine-needle aspiration cytology and histology following surgical treatment. Serum TSH concentrations below normal were found in 75 patients (16.1%), those with low serum TSH results having higher mean free T4 concentrations, were older and were more likely to be female. In those with undetectable serum TSH, no patient had a diagnosis of thyroid neoplasia and in those with low but detectable TSH, thyroid neoplasms were diagnosed in two patients (3.4%). In those with normal serum TSH, 12.0% had a final diagnosis of thyroid neoplasm (p = 0.013). Overall, thyroid malignancy was found in one patient (1.3%) of those with a serum TSH measurement below the normal range and 6.9% of those with normal serum TSH (p < 0.06). Reduction in serum TSH at presentation may identify a group which requires less intensive investigation and follow-up than those without biochemical evidence of thyroid autonomy.  (+info)

Mycophenolate mofetil prevents the progressive renal failure induced by 5/6 renal ablation in rats. (3/2412)

BACKGROUND: Extensive renal ablation is associated with progressive sclerosis of the remnant kidney. Because lymphocytes and monocytes accumulate in the remnant kidney, it is likely that they play a role in the renal scarring. Therefore, we treated rats with 5/6 nephrectomy (5/6Nx) with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), a drug that has an antiproliferative effect and that suppresses the expression of intercellular adhesion molecules. METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats with 5/6Nx received MMF (30 mg. kg-1. day-1 by daily gastric gavage, N = 15) or vehicle (N = 16). Ten additional rats were sham operated. All rats were fed a 30% protein diet. Body weight, serum creatinine, and urinary protein excretion were determined weekly. Lipid peroxidation, as a measure of oxidative stress observed by urinary malondialdehyde determinations, was performed every two weeks. Histologic studies were done in the remnant kidney four weeks (9 rats from the vehicle-treated group, 7 rats from the MMF group, and 5 sham-operated rats) and eight weeks after surgery (the remaining rats). Glomerular volume, sclerosis in glomeruli (segmental and global) and interstitium (semiquantitative scale), infiltrating lymphocytes and macrophages (CD43- and ED1-positive cells), and expression of adhesion molecules (CD54, CD18, and CD11b) were analyzed. RESULTS: MMF treatment prevented the progressive increment in serum creatinine and the proteinuria observed in the 5/6 nephrectomized rats during the eight weeks of observation (P < 0.01). Weight gain was comparable in the MMF-treated and sham-operated rats, whereas weight gain was decreased in untreated 5/6 nephrectomized rats. Excretion of malondialdehyde increased after surgery but returned sooner to control levels in the MMF-treated rats. Increments in glomerular size and mean arterial blood pressure induced by renal ablation were not modified by MMF treatment. Eight weeks after surgery, segmental sclerosis was present in 48.4 +/- 8.35% (+/- sd) glomeruli in the vehicle-treated group versus 25 +/- 10.5% in the MMF-treated group (P < 0.001). Interstitial fibrosis was reduced significantly with MMF treatment (P < 0.001). Infiltration with CD43- and ED1-positive cells in glomeruli and interstitium was two to five times lower in MMF-treated rats (P < 0.01). Expression of adhesion molecules CD18 and CD11b was similarly reduced. CONCLUSION: MMF ameliorates the progressive renal damage in the remnant kidney after 5/6Nx. This effect is associated with a reduction in the infiltration of lymphocytes and monocytes, whereas glomerular hypertrophy and systemic hypertension are unchanged.  (+info)

M2 receptors in genito-urinary smooth muscle pathology. (4/2412)

In vitro bladder contractions in response to cumulative carbachol doses were measured in the presence of selective muscarinic antagonists from rats which had their major pelvic ganglion bilaterally removed (denervation, DEN) or from rats in which the spinal cord was injured (SCI) via compression. DEN induced both hypertrophy (505+/-51 mg bladder weight) and a supersensitivity of the bladders to carbachol (EC50=0.7+/-0.1 uM). Some of the SCI rats regained the ability to void spontaneously (SPV). The bladders of these animals weighed 184+/-17 mg, significantly less than the bladders of non voiding rats (NV, 644+/-92 mg). The potency of carbachol was greater in bladder strips from NV SCI animals (EC50=0.54+/-0.1 uM) than either bladder strips from SPV SCI (EC50=0.93+/-0.3 microM), DEN or control (EC50=1.2+/-0.1 microM) animals. Antagonist affinities in control bladders for antagonism of carbachol induced contractions were consistent with M3 mediated contractions. Antagonist affinities in DEN bladders for 4-diphenlacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine methiodide (4-DAMP, 8.5) and para fluoro hexahydrosilodifenidol (p-F-HHSiD, 6.6); were consistent with M2 mediated contractions, although the methoctramine affinity (6.5) was consistent with M3 mediated contractions. p-F-HHSiD inhibited carbachol induced contraction with an affinity consistent with M2 receptors in bladders from NV SCI (pKb=6.4) animals and M3 receptors in bladders from SPV SCI animals (pKb=7.9). Subtype selective immunoprecipitation of muscarinic receptors revealed an increase in total and an increase in M2 receptor density with no change in M3 receptor density in bladders from DEN and NV SCI animals compared to normal or sham operated controls. M3 receptor density was lower in bladders from SPV SCI animals while the M2 receptor density was not different from control. This increase in M2 receptor density is consistent with the change in affinity of the antagonists for inhibition of carbachol induced contractions and may indicate that M2 receptors or a combination of M2 and M3 receptors directly mediate smooth muscle contraction in bladders from DEN and NV SCI rats.  (+info)

Regulation of chondrocyte differentiation by Cbfa1. (5/2412)

Cbfa1, a developmentally expressed transcription factor of the runt family, was recently shown to be essential for osteoblast differentiation. We have investigated the role of Cbfa1 in endochondral bone formation using Cbfa1-deficient mice. Histology and in situ hybridization with probes for indian hedgehog (Ihh), collagen type X and osteopontin performed at E13.5, E14.5 and E17.5 demonstrated a lack of hypertrophic chondrocytes in the anlagen of the humerus and the phalanges and a delayed onset of hypertrophy in radius/ulna in Cbfa1-/- mice. Detailed analysis of Cbfa1 expression using whole mount in situ hybridization and a lacZ reporter gene reveled strong expression not only in osteoblasts but also in pre-hypertrophic and hypertrophic chondrocytes. Our studies identify Cbfa1 as a major positive regulator of chondrocyte differentiation.  (+info)

Effects of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor and a beta-blocker on cerebral arterioles in rats. (6/2412)

We examined the effects of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, perindopril, and a beta-blocker, propranolol, on cerebral arterioles in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP). The structure and mechanics of cerebral arterioles were examined in untreated Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) and SHRSP that were untreated or treated for 3 months with a high (2 mg/kg per day) or a low (0.3 mg/kg per day) dose of perindopril or propranolol (250 mg/kg per day) alone or in combination with the low dose of perindopril. We measured pressure, external diameter, and cross-sectional area of the vessel wall (CSA) in maximally dilated (with EDTA) cerebral arterioles. Treatment of SHRSP with the high dose of perindopril or the combination of propranolol and the low dose of perindopril normalized cerebral arteriolar mean pressure (50+/-1 [mean+/-SEM] and 43+/-2 mm Hg vs 50+/-1 mm Hg in WKY and 94+/-3 mm Hg in untreated SHRSP; P<0.05), pulse pressure (15+/-1 and 16+/-1 mm Hg vs 13+/-1 mm Hg in WKY and 35+/-1 mm Hg in untreated SHRSP; P<0.05), and CSA (1103+/-53 and 1099+/-51 microm2, respectively, vs 1057+/-49 microm2 in WKY and 1281+/-62 microm2 in untreated SHRSP; P<0.05). In contrast, treatment of SHRSP with the low dose of perindopril or propranolol alone did not normalize arteriolar pulse pressure (24+/-1 and 21+/-1 mm Hg) and failed to prevent increases in CSA (1282+/-77 and 1267+/-94 microm2). Treatment with either dose of perindopril or the combination of propranolol and perindopril significantly increased external diameter in cerebral arterioles of SHRSP (99+/-3, 103+/-2, and 98+/-3 microm vs 87+/-2 microm in untreated SHRSP; P<0.05), whereas propranolol alone did not (94+/-3 microm; P>0.05). These findings suggest that effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors on cerebral arteriolar hypertrophy in SHRSP may depend primarily on their effects on arterial pressure, particularly pulse pressure, whereas their effects on cerebral arteriolar remodeling (defined as a reduction in external diameter) may be pressure independent.  (+info)

Functional intestinal obstruction due to deficiency of argyrophil neurones in the myenteric plexus. Familial syndrome presenting with short small bowel, malrotation, and pyloric hypertrophy. (7/2412)

In 3 infants functional intestinal obstruction, associated with a short small intestine, malrotation, and pyloric hypertrophy, was shown to be due to failure of development of the argyrophil myenteric plexus, with the absence of ongoing peristalsis. 4 infants with similar clinical features have been described previously, and there is evidence for an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance of this syndrome.  (+info)

Apparent loss and hypertrophy of interneurons in a mouse model of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis: evidence for partial response to insulin-like growth factor-1 treatment. (8/2412)

The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) are progressive neurodegenerative disorders with onset from infancy to adulthood that are manifested by blindness, seizures, and dementia. In NCL, lysosomes accumulate autofluorescent proteolipid in the brain and other tissues. The mnd/mnd mutant mouse was first characterized as exhibiting adult-onset upper and lower motor neuron degeneration, but closer examination revealed early, widespread pathology similar to that seen in NCL. We used the autofluorescent properties of accumulated storage material to map which CNS neuronal populations in the mnd/mnd mouse show NCL-like pathological changes. Pronounced, early accumulation of autofluorescent lipopigment was found in subpopulations of GABAergic neurons, including interneurons in the cortex and hippocampus. Staining for phenotypic markers normally present in these neurons revealed progressive loss of staining in the cortex and hippocampus of mnd/mnd mice, with pronounced hypertrophy of remaining detectable interneurons. In contrast, even in aged mutant mice, many hippocampal interneurons retained staining for glutamic acid decarboxylase. Treatment with insulin-like growth factor-1 partially restored interneuronal number and reduced hypertrophy in some subregions. These results provide the first evidence for the involvement of interneurons in a mouse model of NCL. Moreover, our findings suggest that at least some populations of these neurons persist in a growth factor-responsive state.  (+info)

PY - 2005/12/9. Y1 - 2005/12/9. N2 - Loss of functioning nephrons stimulates the growth of residual kidney tissue to augment work capacity and maintain normal renal function. This growth largely occurs by hypertrophy rather than from hyperplasia of the remaining nephrons. The signaling mechanisms that increase RNA and protein synthesis during compensatory renal hypertrophy are unknown. This study found that the remaining kidney hypertrophied 42% by 16 d after unilateral nephrectomy (UNX) in DBA/2 mice. Immunoblotting analysis revealed increased phosphorylation of the 40S ribosomal protein S6 (rpS6) and the eukaryotic translation initiation factor (eIF) 4E-binding protein 1 (4E-BP1), the two downstream effectors of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). The highly specific mTOR inhibitor rapamycin blocked ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Thromboxane A2 stimulates vascular smooth muscle hypertrophy by up- regulating the synthesis and release of endogenous basic fibroblast growth factor. AU - Ali, S.. AU - Davis, M. G.. AU - Becker, M. W.. AU - Dorn, G. W.. PY - 1993. Y1 - 1993. N2 - We have shown previously that thromboxane A2 stimulates hypertrophy of cultured rat aortic smooth muscle cells defined as protooncogene expression and protein synthesis without DNA synthesis or cellular proliferation (Dorn, G. W., II, Becker, M. W., Davis, M. G. (1992) J. Biol. Chem. 267, 24897- 24905). Since endogenous growth modulators could possibly regulate vascular smooth muscle growth to this vasoconstrictor, we tested the hypothesis that thromboxane-stimulated vascular smooth muscle hypertrophy was due to increased expression of endogenously produced basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF). The thromboxane mimetic (15S)-hydroxy-11α,9α-(epoxymethano)prosta- 5Z,13E-dienoic acid (U46619) (1 μM) increased cultured rat aorta derived ...
Introduction: The calcium/calmodulin-dependent kinase II (CaMKII) is activated by angiotensin-II, a strong inducer of vascular smooth muscle cell (VSM) hypertrophy. CaMKII activates HDAC4/MEF-2 dependent gene transcription by phosphorylation of HDAC4 S467 and 632. Here, we demonstrate that CaMKII mediates Ang-II-induced VSM hypertrophy in vitro and in vivo by activation of the HDAC4/MEF-2 signal transduction pathway.. Methods and Results: Medial hypertrophy by Ang-II infusion at pressor dose over 10 days was significantly reduced in C57Bl/6 mice when the CaMKII inhibitor KN93 was given daily i.p. (0.070 mm2 vs 0.052 mm2, p,0.05). In vitro, Ang-II increased the 3H-Leucine/3H-Thymidine uptake in control aortic VSM cells by 50% after 24 hr, whereas overexpression of the CaMKII peptide inhibitor CaMKIIN resulted only in 14 % increase (p,0.05). Ang-II induced phosphorylation of HDAC4 that was further increased under overexpression of CaMKIIδ2. CaMKII overexpression resulted in increased ...
It is well recognized that the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) is a key event in the pathogenesis of various vascular diseases, including atherosclerosis and hypertension. It is generally considered that the phosphorylation/dephosphorylation reactions of a variety of enzymes belonging to the family of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) play an important role in the transduction of mitogenic signal. We have previously shown that among extracellular signal-regulated protein kinases (ERKs), the 42 and 44 kDa isoforms (ERK1/2) participate in the cellular mitogenic machinery triggered by several VSMCs activators, including thrombin. ERK1/2 activation by G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) has been shown to be Ca2--dependent and to require the transactivation of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). In addition, it is generally admitted that variations of the intracellular Ca2- concentration ([Ca2-] i) play an important role in the transduction of mitogenic si...gnal. ...
Vascular smooth muscle cell hypertrophy is a normal compensatory state that may play a pathogenic role in hypertension. Angiotensin II stimulates a hypertrophic response in cultured vascular smooth muscle cells. As part of the growth response, angiotensin II rapidly activates the Na(+)-H+ exchanger, increasing Na+ influx. Because Na+, K(+)-ATPase is the major cellular mechanism for regulating intracellular Na+, we studied the effects of angiotensin II-induced hypertrophy on Na+, K(+)-ATPase expression and activity. Angiotensin II caused rapid increases in both steady-state Na+, K(+)-ATPase activity (ouabain-sensitive 86Rb uptake) and intracellular [Na+]. Angiotensin II also caused a sustained increase in Na+, K(+)-ATPase at 24 hours with a 73% increase in maximal 86Rb uptake per milligram protein and a fourfold increase in Na+, K(+)-ATPase alpha-1 messenger RNA levels. Thus, angiotensin II hypertrophy was associated with rapid increases in Na+, K(+)-ATPase activity due to increased Na+ entry and ...
The fact that isobaric compliance and distensibility of the radial artery were either unchanged or increased in hypertensive patients21 22 may appear surprising because several studies have demonstrated that sustained hypertension decreases large artery distensibility and compliance. This has been reported for pressure-dimension experiments as well as ring and strip studies of human and animal large arteries both in vivo and in vitro.11 12 24 25 26 Thus, in contrast to large arteries our findings suggest a normal distensibility at the site of medium-sized arteries during sustained hypertension, despite hypertrophy of the arterial wall. A likely explanation for the difference in our findings and those of previous studies is that the arteries examined in these studies were of different sizes. Composition of the arterial wall varies with vessel size,27 and the effect of hypertension on conduit arteries may vary with vessel caliber. For instance, previous studies on forearm arterial distensibility ...
The streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat is a model of mesenteric vascular hypertrophy without physical damage to the vessels; at a cellular level, the hypertrophy is due to both increased smooth muscle cell mass and ECM. We have used this model to demonstrate that the development of the vascular hypertrophy is preceded by activation of NHE in the vascular smooth muscle and that the administration of an inhibitor of NHE activity, cariporide, prevents the development of the hypertrophy. It is important to appreciate that the vascular changes observed in this model do not represent atherosclerosis but may be important as early manifestations of diabetes-associated vascular disease.. In this study, as a prelude to the investigation of NHE activity in the hypertrophying vessels, we confirmed the time course of the development of mesenteric hypertrophy after streptozotocin administration to adult rats. We observed no increase in mesenteric weight by 1 week but a 56% increase at 3 weeks after ...

Muscle Hypertrophy is the increase in the size of muscle cells. Hypertrophy for a bodybuilder or general gym goer is the prime goal in the majority of cases, so must be understood properly if you are to achieve it. There are different types of hypertrophy, different ways of achieving it and they will all have different effects on the body. The 2 forms of muscle hypertrophy are myofibrillar hypertrophy and sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. Myofibrillar hypertrophy is the increase in number of the contractile proteins actin and myosin. These proteins join onto the myofibrils (the chains in a muscle cell) and increase the size of the muscle as well as improving the strength of the contraction. Myofibrillar hypertrophy increases strength as well as size. Sarcoplasmic hypertrophy is the increase in volume of sarcoplasmic fluid in the muscle cell. This increase in fluid greatly increases the size of the muscle but doesnt affect strength. The effect on strength that these 2 forms of hypertrophy have shows why a 90kg

Endogenous norepinephrine exerts growth factor-like activity, through α1A-ARs on medial SMCs and α1B-ARs on adventitial fibroblasts, that contributes to wall hypertrophy and restenosis of balloon-injured rat aorta and carotid.6,7,10 This adrenergic trophic activity has been confirmed in carotid arteries of mice with genetic deletion of either catecholamine synthesis or α1-AR subtypes.9 Prolonged elevation of wall norepinephrine also causes hypertrophy of uninjured arteries.10,11 Catecholamine-induced growth of medial SMCs and adventitial fibroblasts requires generation of NAD(P)H oxidase-dependent ROS.12 The present study identified additional steps in this pathway in rat aorta studied ex vivo. In media, these steps consist of ROS generation, followed by HB-EGF shedding, EGFR activation, and ERK1/2 activation (online Figure 1 in the online data supplement provides a model of the pathway in SMCs). This trophic pathway differs from that described in cell culture for angiotensin, thrombin, and ...
What are the functions of mTOR? Can mTOR activation lead to hypertrophy? Are there situations where mTOR activation does not lead to gains?
en] Two-dimensional electrophoresis was used to investigate the effects of a QTL for muscle hypertrophy on sarcoplasmic protein expression in ovine muscles. In the Belgian Texel breed, the QTL for muscle hypertrophy is localized in the myostatin-encoding gene. Based on microsatellite markers flanking the myostatin gene, we compared the hypertrophied genotype with the normal genotype. The average age of the sheep was 3 mo. Among the 4 muscles studied, in the hypertrophied genotype only the vastus medialis was normal, whereas the semimembranosus, tensor fasciae latae, and LM were hypertrophied. In the hypertrophied genotype, these muscles showed upregulation of enzymes involved in glycolytic metabolism together with oxidative metabolism in LM. Certain chaperone proteins, including glutathione S-transferase-Pi, heat shock protein-27, and heat shock cognate-70, were also more highly expressed, probably due to increased use of energetic pathways. Expression of the iron transport protein transferrin ...
Muscle Hypertrophy is essentially the increase in size and growth of muscle cells. I like to think of this like a callus. The harder you rub down on your skin, the thicker the callus forms. There are two main components for muscle hypertrophy, the stimulation and the repair of muscle cells. First, when we lift weights, we are stimulating a contraction in our muscles. This contraction is what causes tiny micro tears in our muscle fibers. As we continue to workout, those muscle fibers continue to
OBJECTIVES: The consequences of breast hypertrophy have been described based on the alteration of body mass distribution, leading to an impact on psychological and physical aspects. The principles of motor control suggest that breast hypertrophy can lead to sensorimotor alterations and the impairment of body balance due to postural misalignment. The aim of this study is to evaluate the postural control of women with breast hypertrophy under different sensory information conditions. METHOD: This cross-sectional study included 14 women with breast hypertrophy and 14 without breast hypertrophy, and the mean ages of the groups were 39 ±15 years and 39±16 years, respectively. A force platform was used to assess the sensory systems that contribute to postural control: somatosensory, visual and vestibular. Four postural conditions were sequentially tested: eyes open and fixed platform, eyes closed and fixed platform, eyes open and mobile platform, and eyes closed and mobile platform. The data were ...
There are two types of hypertrophy: sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar.. Sarcoplasmic hypertrophy (i.e., an increase in the volume of sarcoplasmic fluid inside the muscle cell) is more likely to build muscle thickness. This is often referred to as training for size.. Thats in contrast to training for strength, the goal of which is to achieve myofibrillar hypertrophy. This type of hypertrophy involves the growth of muscle fibers.. Hypertrophy training for size typically uses higher rep ranges with a lower weight. This is a training style associated with bodybuilders.. The goal is to get in a good amount of volume before you hit muscle exhaustion. In practice, that may mean using a weight that feels challenging but not exhausting for 12-15 reps for 3-6 sets.. When you increase the load and the number of sets you perform, you are asking the muscle tissue to rebuild bigger and stronger to accommodate for the increased demands, explains Cody Braun, CPT, Assistant Manager of Fitness at ...
The science of muscle hypertrophy can be pretty complex. But in this article we break down the research to tell you in simple terms. Find out more here...
Skeletal muscle mass is a result of the balance between protein breakdown and protein synthesis. It has been shown that multiple conditions of muscle atrophy are characterized by the common regulation of a specific set of genes, termed atrogenes. It is not known whether various models of muscle hypertrophy are similarly regulated by a common transcriptional program. Here, we characterized gene expression changes in 3 different conditions of muscle growth, examining each condition during acute and chronic phases. Specifically, we compared the transcriptome of Extensor Digitorum Longus (EDL) muscles collected 1) during the rapid phase of postnatal growth at 2 and 4 weeks of age 2) 24 hours or three weeks after constitutive activation of AKT, and 3) 24 hours or three weeks after overload hypertrophy caused by tenotomy of the Tibialis Anterior muscle.

in Genome Research (2010), 20(12), 1651-62. The callipyge phenotype is a monogenic muscular hypertrophy that is only expressed in heterozygous sheep receiving the CLPG mutation from their sire. The wild-type phenotype of CLPG/CLPG animals is ... [more ▼]. The callipyge phenotype is a monogenic muscular hypertrophy that is only expressed in heterozygous sheep receiving the CLPG mutation from their sire. The wild-type phenotype of CLPG/CLPG animals is thought to result from translational inhibition of paternally expressed DLK1 transcripts by maternally expressed miRNAs. To identify the miRNA responsible for this trans effect, we used high-throughput sequencing to exhaustively catalog miRNAs expressed in skeletal muscle of sheep of the four CLPG genotypes. We have identified 747 miRNA species of which 110 map to the DLK1-GTL2 or callipyge domain. We demonstrate that the latter are imprinted and preferentially expressed from the maternal allele. We show that the CLPG mutation affects their level ...
Urgency. Changes in the right ventricle (RV) under hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCVP) are understudied. Aim. To study the condition of RV in this disease. Materials and methods. 86 patients with different forms and variants of HCVP including 69 patients with non-obstructive form of the disease (HNCVP) were evaluated using echoCG. The RV condition was studied by measuring the cavity dimensions and the systolic and diastolic thickness of the anterior wall with estimation of additional parameters reflecting the local diastolic and systolic function. Results. Predominant hypertrophy of the RV anterior wall was found in HCVP including the non-obstructive form. These changes were observed in almost 50% of patients. Anterior wall hypertrophy was associated with disorders of the wall diastolic function. The RV changes were detected primarily in the presence of more advanced and pronounced LV hypertrophy, especially in the apical region ...
Resistance training doesnt play an important role in increasing the muscle fiber numbers. However, it plays an essential role in increasing the cross-sectional area. The levels of hypertrophy can be different in a person based on their age and sex.. The way someones body reacts to a particular exercise is completely different from others. It is often found that a way that helped someone in increasing muscle strength in a person couldnt help others in the same way. So, you must keep all the elements in your mind before you start taking any type of fibers.. The supplements that people take nowadays also play an important role in affecting the muscle hypertrophy. Therefore, you must choose the supplements very careful because wrong supplements damage your muscles badly. You must figure out that what type of exercise, fibers, and supplements are perfect for your body according to your age and sex. ...
Cardiac hypertrophy is a thickening of the heart muscle - characterized by increased cell size rather than number - in response to conditions such as high blood pressure and coronary heart disease, which results in a decrease in size of the chambers of the heart, including the left and right ventricles. Since hypertrophy is associated with heart failure, irregular heart rhythms and an increased risk of angina and heart attack, understanding the mechanisms underlying this abnormal thickening is of great importance. Scientists at the Babraham Institute have now identified a new signalling process in the heart which contributes to cardiac hypertrophy. Rhythmical Ca2+ increases are fundamental to contraction of the heart muscle, but elevated Ca2+ levels also regulate the gene transcription that leads to hypertrophy. The Babraham team found that it is localised increases in Ca2+ concentrations in the cell nucleus that activate the genes responsible for hypertrophy. These nuclear Ca2+ signals, which ...
Gqα signaling continues to be implicated in cardiac hypertrophy. the improved production of superoxide anion NAD(P)H oxidase activity improved manifestation of Gqα phospholipase C (PLC)β1 insulin like growth element-1 receptor (IGF-1R) and epidermal growth element receptor (EGFR) proteins in VSMC from SHR. In addition the enhanced phosphorylation of c-Src PKCδ-Tyr311 IGF-1R EGFR and ERK1/2 exhibited by VSMC from SHR was also attenuated by rottlerin. These results suggest that VSMC from SHR show enhanced activity of PKCδ and that HA14-1 PKCδ is the upstream molecule of reactive oxygen varieties (ROS) and contributes to the enhanced manifestation of Gqα and PLCβ1 proteins and resultant VSMC hypertrophy including c-Src growth element receptor transactivation and MAP kinase signaling. Intro Essential hypertension is definitely associated with vascular redesigning characterized by enhanced press to lumen percentage in arteries [1] and is due to IL12RB2 increased vascular clean muscle mass ...
The term myocardial hypertrophy, say the working group, lacks precision. In cell biology the term hypertrophy describes growth via cell enlargement as opposed to growth by cell division, where hyperplasia is the correct term. Currently in cardiology the term hypertrophy is commonly applied to the situation in the whole heart where myocardial enlargement is accompanied by both hypertrophy and hyperplasia. In addition the term hypertrophy does not take account of the fact that non myocytes in the heart are not passive bystanders and also change in number when the heart remodels. Additionally there may be an invasion of inflammatory cells into the heart, and angiogenesis may occur.. The advantage of the term cardiac remodelling is that it simply defines reorganisation of the different cardiac tissue components, and can be used to describe an increase, or decrease in the size of the left ventricle, as well as a change to the cellular components, explained the first author of the paper, Ralph ...

There is a But, when youre not doing this program, feel free to use varying rep ranges if you feel you can handle it. Hypertrophy vs Strength Training: Sets, Reps and Rest Intervals. No muscle group should be trained twice in the same three days. Hypertrophy in strength training is both a natural and sought out characteristic of strength training. Figure 2: Specificity requirements for hypertrophy But these additional days will not look the same as your primary training days - far from it. And by heavy, Im talking about sets of somewhere between 1 and 8 reps. Training for hypertrophy, on the other hand, can involve a variety of loads, ranging from light to medium to heavy. The 5 x 5 program could also be considered a full-body workout program to a degree, since you work almost all the major muscle groups with the three exercises you choose. Breaking Down The Total Package. HST is also known to create fast strength gains so this is an added bonus. A good program for that is the Texas Method ...
The word toned has gotten a bad rep which I dont think is fully warranted. Toned accurately describes the look some people are going for, and training for hypertrophy is an important strategy toward that goal. Tone is an actual term. Resting muscle tone, also called tonus, is a state of partial contraction that is characteristic of normal muscle, maintained at least in part by a continuous bombardment of motor impulses originating reflexly, and serves to maintain body posture.4. Good posture is not only the starting point for strength, it is a starting point for developing a toned appearance from hypertrophy training. The stronger you are, the better tone your muscles can hold.. Hypertrophy training also builds up tendons, ligaments, and small stabilizer muscles and allow you to address specific muscle groups more directly. Tendons and ligaments adapt more slowly than muscles (which is why joint issues are often a concern in heavy lifting). Lighter hypertrophy training gives your joints and ...
Hypertrophy - What is element hypertrophy? Hypertropphy. Just means that something is increased in size. For example lots of weight lifting leads to muscle hypertrophy.
Hypertrophy is the process of muscle tissue growth and it can occur in two ways known as sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar hypertrophy which are very different.
Dive into the basics of hypertrophy vs. strength. We explain the differences of each, and how aiming for either hypertrophy or strength will impact your training.
For myself, a shake work best because liquid is absorbed faster and can be guzzled down as you walk out the gym doors. Once again nutrition is a critical component of results.. Hypertrophy also emphasizes the importance of recovery and the common idea of training different body parts on different days in order to experience hypertrophy in the designated areas.. Stereotypes would say that men embrace the gain while women fear the bulk. The truth is that the benefits of strength training for both genders are vital to our neuromuscular, cardiovascular, and skeletal systems.. Whether or not hypertrophy is the goal, lifting weights is a highly recommended component of an exercise program.. The Lifestyle of the FIT and Healthy includes strength training and in turn when we LIFT ourselves up through better health, we influence the lives of others to do the same.. Megan Johnson McCullough is an NASM Master Trainer and Instructor who owns a fitness studio in Oceanside CA called Every BODYs Fit. She ...
Overtraining is probably the most ignored factor by exercise enthusiasts. In order to build muscle, the body has to receive a stimulus ‑‑ a reason ‑‑ to grow bigger, or hypertrophy. Its really very simple: the body only does what it needs to do ‑‑ what it is required to do. It isnt going to suddenly expand its muscle mass because it anticipates needing more muscles. But if it is challenged to move weights around, it will respond by growing. Another way to look at it is if you take ANY body-builder and put him in bed for weeks at a time, hell begin to rapidly lose muscle mass ‑‑ because the body will sense it doesnt need the extra muscle any more! So, one needs to deliver the STIMULUS to stimulate muscular hypertrophy (growth) in the body ‑‑ and thats what lifting weights does. BUT - overdoing that, overtraining, overstresses the body and initiates the process of actually breaking down muscle mass as the body begins to burn its own muscles to use for fuel! This is why so ...

While much of the hypertrophy signaling cascade has been identified, the initiating, resistance exercise-induced and hypertrophy-stimulating stimuli have remained elusive. For the purpose of this review, we define an initiating, resistance exercise-induced and hypertrophy-stimulating signal as hypertrophy stimulus, and the sensor of such a signal as hypertrophy sensor ...
As the leading cause of mortality in the United States, heart failure (HF) represents a disease state affected by a complex interplay between genetic, physiological, and environmental factors. Understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying the progression from normal cardiac function to ventricular dysfunction and overt HF will facilitate the identification of new therapeutic targets. Specifics of the underlying ultrastructural and molecular determinants of the progression to ventricular dysfunction and HF are still incompletely elucidated. The early adaptive response to increasing myocardial load and functional demand is characterized by cell hypertrophy and angiogenesis before pathological hypertrophy develops. A balance between compensatory hypertrophy and apoptotic pathways exists in the early stages of ventricular dysfunction, whereas upregulation of apoptotic pathways leading to myocyte damage and apoptosis as well as subsequent myocardial fibrosis is indicative of the progression to ...

Protein supplementation before and after exercise does not further augment skeletal muscle hypertrophy after resistance training in elderly men. Whats the best protein shake after a workout? Should you take your whey protein shake before or after your workout? It also might help to grab some water to restore lost electrolytes or have a quick snack or protein shake before things really start heating up. (6). Look for a protein blend that has a 2:1:1 BCAA ratio-10 grams of BCAAs per serving, five of which are leucine. Theres no need to reach for a shake after every run. Everyone has their likes and dislikes. There are a handful of reasons for this and you can click on the links in the above paragraph to see exactly how dextrose and creatine may help take your workouts up a notch. This is key because exercise causes the breakdown and oxidation of BCAAs. Determining whether to drink a protein shake before or after a workout seems to come down to personal preference. -, Carbohydrate does not ...

Myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy (or myotonic hypertrophy) is a rare genetic condition characterized by reduced body fat and increased skeletal muscle size. Affected individuals have up to twice the usual amount of muscle mass in their bodies. They also tend to have increased muscle strength. Myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy is not known to cause medical problems, and affected individuals are intellectually normal. The prevalence of this condition is unknown. Mutations in the MSTN gene cause myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy. The MSTN gene provides instructions for making a protein called myostatin, which is active in muscles used for movement (skeletal muscles) both before and after birth. This protein normally restrains muscle growth, ensuring that muscles do not grow too large. Mutations that reduce the production of functional myostatin lead to an overgrowth of muscle tissue. Myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy has a pattern of inheritance known as incomplete autosomal dominance. ...
Heat shock protein 60 (HSP60) is a mitochondrial chaperone. Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) have been shown to interfere with the β-cell function. We hypothesized that AGEs induced β-cell hypertrophy and dysfunction through a HSP60 dysregulation pathway during the stage of islet/β-cell hypertrophy of type-2-diabetes. We investigated the role of HSP60 in AGEs-induced β-cell hypertrophy and dysfunction using the models of diabetic mice and cultured β-cells. Hypertrophy, increased levels of p27Kip1, AGEs, and receptor for AGEs (RAGE), and decreased levels of HSP60, insulin, and ATP content were obviously observed in pancreatic islets of 12-week-old db/db diabetic mice. Low-concentration AGEs significantly induced the cell hypertrophy, increased the p27Kip1 expression, and decreased the HSP60 expression, insulin secretion, and ATP content in cultured β-cells, which could be reversed by RAGE neutralizing antibody. HSP60 overexpression significantly reversed AGEs-induced hypertrophy, ...
Enlarged adenoids can become nearly the size of a ping pong ball and completely block airflow through the nasal passages. Even if enlarged adenoids are not substantial enough to physically block the back of the nose, they can obstruct airflow enough so that nasal breathing requires an uncomfortable amount of work, and inhalation occurs instead through mouth breathing. Adenoids can also obstruct the nasal airway enough to affect the voice without actually stopping nasal airflow altogether.[1] Nasal blockage is determined by at least two factors: 1) the size of the adenoids, and 2) the size of the nasal pharynx passageway. The adenoid usually reaches its greatest size by about age 5 years or so, and then fades away (atrophies) by late childhood - generally by the age of 7 years. The lymphoid tissue remains under the mucosa of the nasopharynx, and could be seen under a microscope if the area was biopsied, but the mass is so reduced in size that the roof of the nasopharynx becomes flat rather than ...
During longitudinal development of the long bone cartilage, periarticular chondrocyte differentiation, which adds cells to the columnar region, is followed by chondrocyte hypertrophy, which reduces cells in the columnar region. Therefore, the length of the columnar chondrocyte region is determined by three parameters: the pace of periarticular chondrocyte differentiation, the pace of chondrocyte hypertrophy and the rate of columnar chondrocyte proliferation (Fig. 7). As upregulated Ihh signaling promotes periarticular chondrocyte differentiation and increases the rate of columnar chondrocyte proliferation (Kobayashi et al., 2005b), the proliferating columnar chondrocyte region would be increased if chondrocyte hypertrophy were not altered. Our observation that the columnar chondrocyte region was shorter in the PTHrP-/-;Ptch1c/-; Col2a1-Cre double mutant than in the PTHrP-/- single mutant (Fig. 2B, Fig. 3A) demonstrates that Hh signaling also acts to promote chondrocyte hypertrophy in the absence ...
Left ventricular hypertrophy is enlargement and thickening (hypertrophy) of the walls of your hearts main pumping chamber (left ventricle).. Left ventricular hypertrophy can develop in response to some factor - such as high blood pressure or a heart condition - that causes the left ventricle to work harder. As the workload increases, the muscle tissue in the chamber wall thickens, and sometimes the size of the chamber itself also increases. The enlarged heart muscle loses elasticity and eventually may fail to pump with as much force as needed.. Left ventricular hypertrophy is more common in people who have uncontrolled high blood pressure. But no matter what your blood pressure is, developing left ventricular hypertrophy puts you at higher risk for a heart attack and stroke.. Treating high blood pressure can help ease your symptoms and may reverse left ventricular hypertrophy.. Left ventricular hypertrophy usually develops gradually. You may experience no signs or symptoms, especially during ...
After reduction mammaplasty, patients typically experience soreness, swelling and bruising for several days. Bandages are removed after 2 days, and replaced with a surgical bra. Physical activity should be limited for 1 to 2 weeks, while exercise and other strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 4 weeks. Stitches are removed after 2 to 3 weeks, at which point most patients return to work and other regular activities.. The results of reduction mammaplasty are noticeable immediately after surgery. As swelling and bruising subside, the breasts appearance improves. Scars fade with time, and usually cannot be seen when a patient wears a bathing suit or low-cut top.. ...
Skeletal muscle exhibits remarkable plasticity in its ability to modulate its mass in response to the physiologic changes associated with functional use, systemic disease, and aging. Although a gradual loss of muscle mass normally occurs with advancing age, its increasingly rapid progression results in sarcopenia in a subset of individuals. The identities of muscle-enriched, long noncoding RNAs that regulate this process are unknown. Here, we identify a long noncoding RNA, named Chronos, whose expression in muscle is positively regulated with advancing age and negatively regulated during Akt1-mediated growth. Inhibition of Chronos induces myofiber hypertrophy both in vitro and in vivo, in part, through the epigenetic modulation of Bmp7 signaling. ...
The exploration of tridimensional (3D) technology of computational tomography and the development of valid 3D printed models may improve the assessment of adenoid obstruction. The identification of an enlarged adenoid in childhood would streamline the referral of appropriately selected cases to an otolaryngologist, leading to early treatment of affected children when indicated. The objective of this study is to validate the use of a 3D printed model depicting adenoid hypertrophy based on the pediatric otolaryngologist, head and neck surgeon (OHNS) participants assessment. A cross-sectional study was performed to develop and validate 3D depictions, including print-outs, of the nasopharynx including different degrees of Adenoidal Hypertrophy (AH). The print-outs were obtained from 14 Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans of 14 children (12 boys, 2 girls; mean age of 10.61 years) representing grades 1, 2, 3, and 4 nasopharyngeal adenoidal obstructions, according to a previously Nasoendoscopy-graded
Ok, so its well established that a level of mechanical tension is needed in order to maximise the hypertrophic responses to resistance training. But what about metabolic stress? Well, it has been suggested that metabolic stress might play an additive role by enhancing the post exercise hypertrophic response (Schoenfeld, 2013). As highlighted by Schoenfeld (2010), the effects of metabolic stress are likely to arise through metabolite build up as a result of what is called anaerobic glycolysis. Anaerobic glycolysis is simply the production of energy using glucose in the absence of oxygen. It is likely that the products of anaerobic glycolysis (e.g. lactate, hydrogen ions, creatine) initiates a series of processes (fibre recruitment, enhanced hormone release, cellular swelling, production of ROS, altered myokine production), which contribute to the hypertrophy process (Schoenfeld, 2013).. Interestingly, bodybuilding-type resistance training programs are likely to induce significant amounts of ...
Previous work has revealed important roles for HIRA in myogenesis. It is important for the differentiation of C2C12 myoblasts into myotubes (Song et al., 2012). HIRA facilitates expression of Myod1 through incorporation of histone H3.3 into its promoter and enhancer regions (Yang et al., 2011b). Histone H3.3 itself epigenetically maintains expression of the Myod1 gene after cell division (Ng and Gurdon, 2008). HIRA cooperates with MEF2 transcription factors to drive expression of MEF2 target genes, like Myog (Yang et al., 2011a). HIRA is also a substrate for AKT proteins. HIRA phosphorylation by AKT proteins in myoblasts preserves the proliferative state. Dephosphorylation occurs as myoblasts differentiate towards myotubes (Yang et al., 2016). Thus, HIRA-mediated chromatin assembly is critical during myogenesis. In this study, we expanded our understanding of the function of HIRA in skeletal muscle by determining the consequence of its loss after myogenesis in the homeostasis and function of ...
Background: Adenoid hypertrophy treatment for children is generally planned in accordance with the degree of airway obstruction and related morbidity. If surgical treatment is indicated, the individual risk/benefit analysis of patients should be assessed in terms of anesthetic and postoperative complications. Although there are few alternative treatment options, these may be considered as a nonsurgical approach in less serious cases. Accordingly, studies about intranasal steroid applications under various protocols have been presented. ...
Persistent overexpression of IGF-I in mice skeletal muscle results in hypertrophy, which is likely mediated via the mTOR/p70S6K pathway, potentially via an Akt-independent signaling pathway.
In previous studies, we have shown the exclusive expression of the Xtr gene in germ line cells of Xenopus and the occurrence of Xtr in germ line cells as well as early embryonic cells as a maternal factor (Ikema et al. 2002; Hiyoshi et al. 2005). Loss-of-function of Xtr in fertilized eggs using anti-Xtr antibody caused the lack of chromosome condensation and microtubule assembly, resulting in cleavage arrest (Hiyoshi et al. 2005). Since Xtr is a member of mRNP complex associated with mRNAs encoding the proteins such as XL-INCENP and RCC1 (Mostafa et al. 2009), which play an important role in karyokinesis (Ohtsubo et al. 1989; Mackay et al. 1998; Adams et al. 2001), the inhibition of karyokinesis progression induced by ablation of Xtr function was expected to be ascribable to translational suppression of these mRNAs. In Xenopus spermatogenesis, the amount of Xtr increases immediately after spermatogenic cells enter into meiotic phase (Hiyoshi et al. 2005). Therefore, Xtr was also thought to be ...

This pathway shows the role of microRNAs in the process of cardiac hypertrophy. MicroRNA targets were predicted by the TargetScan algorithm, and the predicted interactions are shown in pink. MicroRNAs are shown as purple rounded rectangles. It is not sure which WNT and frizzled proteins influence cardiac hypertrophy. Though there are strong indications that WNT3A, WNT5A, frizzled1 and frizzled2 play a role in cardiac hypertrophy. Thus these have been added to the pathway instead of all the WNT and frizzled proteins. Experiments which will shed light on this are still being done ...
Serotonin, in addition to its fundamental role as a neurotransmitter, plays a critical role in the cardiovascular system, where it is thought to be involved in the development of cardiac hypertrophy and failure. Indeed, we recently found that mice with deletion of monoamine oxidase A had enhanced levels of blood and cardiac 5-HT, which contributed to exacerbation of hypertrophy in a model of experimental pressure overload. 5-HT2A receptors are expressed in the heart and mediate a hypertrophic response to 5-HT in cardiac cells. However, their role in cardiac remodeling in vivo and the signaling pathways associated are not well understood. In the present study, we evaluated the effect of a selective 5-HT2A receptor antagonist, M100907, on the development of cardiac hypertrophy induced by transverse aortic constriction (TAC). Cardiac 5-HT2A receptor expression was transiently increased after TAC, and was recapitulated in cardiomyocytes, as observed with 5-HT2A in situ labeling by immunohistochemistry.
Q: Ive been following the current bodybuilding training trend of hitting each muscle once a week with lots of sets. Growth has been slow, but youd think that with so much volume and intensity at one workout, it should take a full week for that muscle to completely recover, right?. Well, training each muscle with lots of volume once a week will produce some growth-if intensity is high enough to produce significant damage. The question is how much is enough?. Less volume for each muscle but with more frequent body part hits has proven a better, more sure-fire method for optimal hypertrophy in most cases and works as a sort of anabolic phasing…. In Anabolic Reload we discuss a recent study by hypertrophy researcher Brad Schoenfeld, Ph.D. He compared a workout program that trained each target muscle once a week and the less popular full-body workout performed on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.. He made sure that the trainees were doing the SAME VOLUME of work for each muscle…. In other words, ...
The researchers put resistance-trained men on a six-week very-high-volume lifting program and then performed biopsies on the subjects vastus lateralis. The results showed a substantial increase in muscle fiber size (greater than 20 percent) that was accompanied by a roughly 30 percent reduction in the proportion of myofibrillar proteins. Those findings suggest that the hypertrophy was due to an increase in sarcoplasmic components (likely a combination of fluid and proteins related to metabolic stress).. Whats really interesting is that follow-up work from the same lab found that a heavier-load, lower-volume protocol resulted in type 2 fiber hypertrophy, but the changes occurred without significant increases in sarcoplasmic proteins and fluid.[5] Collectively, these studies suggest that bodybuilding-type training routines, with higher volume and moderate loads, produce greater increases in sarcoplasmic growth, whereas powerlifting-type programs, with lower volume and heavier loads, may generate ...

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness and airflow limitation. Despite respiratory symptoms may be episodic, progressive changes occur in the structure of the airway, leading to its irreversible remodeling. Changes include mucus hypersecretion, injury to epithelial cells, smooth muscle hypertrophy, sub-basement membrane fibrosis and angiogenesis. The risk factors for developing asthma are a combination of genetic predisposition along with environmental exposure to inhaled substances and particles that may provoke allergic reactions or irritate the airways, such as in- and out-door allergens, tobacco smoke, chemical irritants in the workplace and air pollution. Asthma is a clinically heterogeneous entity due to the complexity of its pathogenetic substrate. Recent evidence suggests asthma to be associated with a sort of immunodeficiency accounting for an increased susceptibility to infection in asthmatic patients. The role of infections ...

Identification of the single base change causing the callipyge muscle hypertrophy phenotype, the only known example of polar overdominance in animals. Genome Research. 12:1496-1506. Interpretive Summary: A mutation in sheep, named callipyge, with large effects on lean and fat development as well as eating quality of meat was uncovered. Expression of muscle hypertrophy is inherited in a unique parent-of-origin manner referred to as polar overdominance. Specifically, animals exhibiting characteristic muscle hypertrophy must inherit the mutated allele from the sire, and not from the dam, making callipyge a unique phenomenon. We identified the specific causative mutation by sequencing key inbred animals identical-by-descent for a 210-Kb region known to contain the gene. A single base change was revealed as the only variable position in the sequenced region within these two rams ...

In an earlier post (Click here to view the related post mentioned) the question was asked, who is giving away the biggest bonuses when obtaining Hypertrophy Max? The bonuses mentioned here are exclusive bonuses that associates of Vince Delmonte and Ben Pakulski are giving away when obtaining Hypertrophy Max from the link they provide. This has become a great competition among associates as the public will always be interested to get great value for money, which in turn is lucrative for the associate. Yes, you are right. It is true that it is much more lucrative to buy from Vince and Bens associates than it is to buy from them personally. What is the reasoning behind it. Simple. The associates as already mentioned usually give away all the bonuses Vince and Ben offers, but also their own exclusive gifts that you will find no where else when obtaining Hypertrophy Max.. I have done my own little research on the internet browsing all the big sites or at least those sites that rank well for ...

One of the most overlooked forms of treating muscle soreness is a top quality massage! Massage therapy has been around for many thousands of years and is perhaps the most effective way of healing muscle soreness, injuries and also accelerating the rate of recovery in the muscle tissue. This article aims to outline the benefits of a good massage and why you should consider having one done on the regular.So to begin with how can having massage therapy regularly increase the rate at which you heal? Well what a massage does is instantly increase the blood flow into your muscle tissue, thus increasing the amount of nutrients available to your muscle cells to assimilate. As a result the muscle tissue is able to recover an awful lot quicker. Working on the same principles of increased blood flow, consistently having massage therapy can indeed improve your muscle tone and the rate at which muscular hypertrophy occurs within. Massage therapy can also improve the rate of recovery by removing the toxins which are

Muscle mass is the main goal of a large part of the gym population. Whether youre looking to get stronger, have a sleeker physique or lose body fat, gaining muscle mass the right way is the best path to success.. It might be because of its popularity that this topic is the source of so many myths and misconceptions. In order to gain the most muscle mass, you have to know what to do, how to do it, and also what not to do.. It is for this specific reason that Christian Thibaudeau designed this course. He will divulge everything you need to know on all the topics related to training for hypertrophy.. In this course, you will learn:. - The science of hypertrophy and the key concepts necessary for successfully gaining muscle mass. - What types of training, methods and techniques works, and for what type of people. - How to structure your mass-gaining effort; how to build an effective workout plan and how to optimize your periodization in order to keep making gains.. You will discover the very ...
The present study aimed to identify sex-differently expressed miRNAs in a late stage of hypertrophy (9 weeks) and the possible role of ERs in the regulation of these differences. Our previous studies identified ERbeta as an important determinant factor of the observed sex differences in pressure overload, playing different roles in males and females. This report identified a total of 30 miRNAs with sex and/or sex*surgery interaction effect 9 weeks after TAC in WT mice. The same effects were not observed in ERbeta-/- animals partially due to the higher expression of these miRNAs in ERbeta-/- females than in their WT counterparts. This study reveals a repression of a number of miRNAs by estradiol and its receptors alpha and beta in female cardiomyocytes, confirming the in vivo results and accentuating the important protective role of oestrogen and ERbeta in the female heart. Six of the miRNAs with sex differences in WT but not in ERbeta-/- hypertrophy models were found to be possible fibrosis ...
I thought this was a really good article. Ive been interested in the whole size vs. strength debate. Lately, Ive really been looking for a physiological explanation for the different types of muscle building. With a quick google search, you can find that muscular growth is called hypertrophy and that the two primary types are myofibrillar and sarcoplasmic. Some facts are that myofibrillar hypertrophy means an increase in the number of muscle fibers and that sarcoplasmic hypertrophy means an increase in the size of muscle fibers because of an increase in sarcoplasm in the fibers themselves. The myth is that you can actually train your muscles for one type of hypertrophy over the other. The fact is that there is that there is no research that suggests that different types of training result in any difference in the relative amount of each type of hypertrophy. They simply happen together. Unfortunately, the myth that you can make your muscles larger (sarcoplasmic hypertrophy) with no effect on ...

Focused hypertrophy training is often overlooked by coaches and athletes in competitive CrossFit. Perhaps this is because hypertrophy is generally considered to be within the purview of bodybuilding, and old school CrossFit was generally juxtapositioned to this style of training (along with excessive low intensity steady state endurance training.)

There are various causes of breast hypertrophy which include overproduction of estrogens, patients genetics and being overweight. The weight of the breasts is the major consequence of hypertrophy; others are pain in the upper back, shoulders, neck, poor posture.
In the first scripture course I ever took, when I was nineteen years old and didnt know applesauce from sin, professor Hanker gave us an examination on Jeremiah. The essay question asked, Do you think that Jeremiah suffered from a hypertrophy of sympathy for God? Why or why not? Since none of us knew what hypertrophy meant, it was a hard question to answer. I wish I knew what ever happened to Eddie Hanker. He was an important influence on me in learning how to relate to the Word with reverence. Whenever anyone was saying anything without critical foundation he would start yelling, rega, rega!, which I think means something like hold on or wait a minute in Hebrew ...
RESUMO: Physical exercise with resistance application is usually employed, aiming at gaining strength and muscle hypertrophy, in addition to improving the other neuromuscular components. In this perspective, several training protocols appear as possibilities for greater muscular gains, among which the training with repetition to failure and training with variation of 70-85% of the 1RM (Maximum Repetition) stand out. In addition, training with vascular occlusion, which consists of a training with low load, many repetitions and restriction of blood flow, appears to potentiate the training with light loads. In view of the above, it is important to evaluate the best form of resistance training, considering the differences and conflicts found in the literature regarding the protocols. Thus, the present study aims to compare different protocols of resistance training in young and sedentary women, with the purpose of gaining strength and muscle hypertrophy. This is a randomized clinical trial in which ...
