Molecular mechanisms of preservation of muscle with age by hsp70.

Objective

As we age, our muscles become smaller and weaker. Muscle is more susceptible to exercise induced damage and recovery from damage is severely impaired. The host laboratory has demonstrated that increased expression of the HSP70 protein protects against this dysfunction. The aim of this project is to examine the molecular basis of this protection.
