CALCIUM SIGNALS MEDIATE EXITATION-METABOLISM COUPLING IN SKELETAL MUSCLE

by Professor Enrique Jaimovich, University of Chile, Chile 

Enrique Jaimovich leads the Muscle Cell Physiology Laboratory at the Faculty of Medicine, Universidad de Chile. This laboratory hosts around 20 people, including Assistant Professors Mariana Casas and Paola Llanos, post-doctoral trainees, PhD students, MS students and technical staff. Their subject is skeletal muscle plasticity in health and disease and they have contributed a molecular mechanism that explains the effect of muscle electrical activity in the regulation of gene expression in the muscle cell. This mechanism appears to be altered in several animal models that are presently being studied in the laboratory; namely muscular dystrophy, obesity with insulin resistance, normal aging and cancer cachexia.

REGISTRATION
