The Role of Skeletal Muscle Damage in Adaptive Remodeling
Symposium — Sunday, April 7, 2019 — 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM — Convention Center, Room W314
Environmental and Exercise Physiology Section — Chair: John Joseph McCarthy — Co-Chair: Kevin A. Murach
Cosponsored by J. Appl. Physiol.
Skeletal muscle remodeling is a multi-faceted process that involves sensing of tension at the muscle fiber membrane that ultimately results in an adaptive signaling response. Muscle damage often occurs with loading, and it is thought that damage is an important contributor to the remodeling process, but the direct evidence for this is unclear. This symposium brings together experts in the field to discuss how muscle fiber damage contributes to skeletal muscle fiber remodeling.
