Identified a new possible target to combat muscle wasting
Date:4/9/2014

or minimize muscle wasting compared to patients with type 1 diabeteswho do not produce insulinwho show a clear loss of muscle mass. The IRB researchers demonstrate that the repression of DOR in muscle cells of type 2 diabetic animals allows the maintenance of muscle mass.

"We interpret DOR repression, which occurs naturally, as an adaptation mechanism to preserve muscle mass and to maintain greater muscular strength in type 2 diabetics," explains David Sala, first author of the study, who has recently started a post-doctoral training period at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, in La Jolla, California.

Besides working with mice, the scientists have performed experiments on biopsies from skeletal muscle of patients with diabetes and patients resistant to insulin, thanks to collaboration with clinicians from the Universit Lyon 1, in France, and from the Medical University of Byalistok, Poland, also included among the authors.
