An insight into lysosomal signature in muscle wasting

Project description

Role of lysosomal signalling in muscle atrophy

Muscle wasting is the progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass, caused by immobility, ageing, malnutrition, medications, injuries, or diseases that impact the musculoskeletal or nervous system. Muscle wasting leads to muscle weakness and disability; nevertheless, to date, effective therapy preventing muscle loss is not available. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the Myo_LysoZOOM project aims to expand the knowledge of the mechanisms controlling muscle homeostasis and to unravel the connection between lysosomal signalling and muscle atrophy. The project is a collaboration between the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research (US) and the University of Padova.
