We previously showed that GDE5 is a cytosolic glycerophosphocholine (GPC) phosphodiesterase. Here, we characterized the cellular functions of GDE5 in adipocytes because GDE5 expression is highly expressed during 3T3-L1 adipocyte differentiation. K...

To investigated whether the alterations in sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+handling function and excitability of sarcolemma would contribute to a loss of the contractile force following eccentric contraction (ECC), we examined contractile force, S...
Project Year: 2010 - 2011    Investigator(s): MAEMURA, Hirohiko
In recent year, Carnosine attract at home and abroad attention as supplement with potential attenuating effect at muscle fatigue. The purpose of this study was clarified the mechanism of attenuating effect at muscle fatigue by carnosine ingestion,...
