  1. 1. Human muscle spindles complex morphology and structural organisation

    Author : Jing-Xia Liu; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : human; muscle spindIe; intrafusal fiber; aging; biceps brachii; deep muscles of the neck; MyHC; mATPase; SERCA; Human Anatomy; anatomi; muscle spindle;

    Abstract : Muscle spindles are skeletal muscle mechanoreceptors that mediate the stretch reflex and provide axial and limb position information to the central nervous system. They have been proposed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of muscle pain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cross transfer effects after unilateral muscle overuse an experimental animal study about alterations in the morphology and the tachykinin system of muscles

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Yafeng Song; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Triceps surae; overuse; contralateral; muscle; muscle fiber; MyHC; capillary; tachykinin; substance P; NK-1R; inflammation; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Unilateral exercise can produce certain contralateral strength effects. Deleterious events can be cross-transferred as well, as illustrated by a strict symmetry in some chronic inflammatory diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adaptability of skeletal muscle to hormone treatment in relation to gender and aging

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Fushun Yu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; skinned muscle fiber; gender; aging; steroid hormone; V0 electrophoresis; MyHC; MyLC; enzymehistochemistry; hyperthyroid rat; thyroid hormone receptor TR deficient TR[alpha]1 - -; TR[beta]- -; and TR[alpha]1- -[beta]- - mice;

    Abstract : The aims of this study were to investigate the expression of myosin isoforms, muscle contractility at the cell level, and changes in these parameters in response to altered hormonal status in aging male and female rodents. In addition, by using mice lacking thyroid hormone receptors (TR[alpha]1 or TR[beta] or TR[alpha]1/[beta]) we tried to improve our understanding of the mechanisms by which thyroid hormone regulates the expression of specific MyHC isoforms via these different nuclear receptors.

  4. 4. Extra- and intrafusal muscle fibre type compositions of the human masseter at young age. In perspective of growth and functional maturation of the jaw-face motor system

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Catharina Österlund; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; jaw; limb; human; muscle; morphology; fibre type; myosin heavy chain; muscle spindle; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Morphology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Morfologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Muscles control body posture and movement by extrafusal and intrafusal (muscle spindle) fibres. The purpose of this thesis was to provide insight into the muscular basis for human jaw function at young age. READ MORE

  5. 5. Myosin myopathy. A new disease entity

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Homa Tajsharghi; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuromuscular disorders; Myosin myopathy; Myosin heavy chain; Myosin storage myopathy;

    Abstract : By the discovery and characterization of two familial myopathies caused by mutations in myosin heavy chaingenes, we introduce a new entity within the field of neuromuscular disorders: Myosin myopathyThe first myopathy affected a family in western Sweden. Previous linkage analysis had located the gene tochromosome 17p13. READ MORE
