      Bone mineral density is known to be a heritable, polygenic trait whereas genetic variants contributing to lean mass variation remain largely unknown. We estimated the shared SNP heritability and performed a bivariate GWAS ...
    • Human skeletal muscle plasmalemma alters its structure to change its Ca2+-handling following heavy-load resistance exercise 

      Cully, Tanya R.; Murphy, Robyn M.; Roberts, Llion A.; Raastad, Truls; Fassett, Robert G.; Coombes, Jeff S.; Jayasinghe, Isuru D.; Launikonis, Bradley S. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      High-force eccentric exercise results in sustained increases in cytoplasmic Ca2+ levels ([Ca2+]cyto), which can cause damage to the muscle. Here we report that a heavy-load strength training bout greatly alters the structure ...
