Scientists discover chemical switch that determines muscle fiber type
...ocess turned on by PGC-1 produces proteins such as myoglobin
that slow-twitch muscles require. Spiegelman, Jiandie Lin, PhD, the paper's first author, and their colleagues created transgenic mice that carried the PGC-1 gene in all their skeletal muscles. An added bit of DNA, called a promoter, caused the PGC-1...
Evolutionary implications: myoglobin-like proteins found in ancient microorganisms
...ke proteins in ancient microorganisms. In animals, myoglobin
(found in muscle) and its close relative hemoglobin (the main protein in the red blood cell) play an essential role in oxygen transport and storage. The newly identified proteins may be the evolutionary ancestors of proteins involved in oxygen sensin...

is important, but something else isalso important; there are some cellular adaptations that we have not yetdefined," Garry said. "By understanding and identifying these adaptations, wewill increase our knowledge of what happens when people get chest ...
