Muscle wasting or atrophy is a condition associated with major human systemic diseases including, diabetes, cancer, and kidney failure, among others. There is accumulating evidence from comparison of transcriptional profiles that a common set of genes, termed atrogenes, are modulated in atrophying muscles. However, the transcriptional changes that trigger reversion or attenuation of muscle atrophy have not been characterized at the molecular level. To identify key factors involved in the recovery of skeletal muscle mass, we will use cDNA microarrays and phosphorylation profiles of kinases (protein array) to investigate genes differentially expressed during the atrophy reversion of the androgen-sensitive levator ani muscle (LA), in the well-established model of castration and testosterone replacement.
