Oxidative stress and apoptosis is associated with muscle wasting (atrophy) after muscle disuse (immobilization), denervation and burn injury or critical illness. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are generated because of oxidative stress may contribute to several kinds of post-translational modification, for instance carbonylation or phosphorylation of proteins and also induce apoptosis by triggering the cascade of apoptotic signaling. These changes can cause decrease in growth factor (insulin) signaling. Skeletal muscle is a major target of insulin action and insulin-stimulated glucose uptake is an important mechanism in the metabolic pathway. Understanding the signaling pathways and identifying the crucial proteins and genes that are responsible and contribute to disuse muscle atrophy is important in developing counter-measures to prevent this form of skeletal muscle wasting and preserve physiological function.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
