Example text

Thus, compression of fluid in bone canaliculi surrounding the network of mechanotransductive osteocytes during mechanical loading induces streaming electrical potentials (Pienkowski & Pollack, 1983). Pulsing electric currents have been found to facilitate healing of bone fractures. 4 mT pulses in 260 μs with a 67 ms pause, performed 10 times in a day) induce phosphorylation of the anabolic mTOR enzyme in preosteoblasts and fibroblasts in the absence of growth factors in the cell medium. 1). 1 Activation of PI3K–mTOR signaling by electromagnetic fields distal to insulin or growth factor receptors.

An important early role of catecholamines during exercise is redistributing blood from general systemic circulation to the muscle. This is accomplished in part by vasoconstrictive action of NE acting on α1 and α2 AdR, by vasopressin acting on V1 receptors on peripheral vasculature, and in part by vasodilatory effects of NO in the muscle. 14). One of its actions is activation of the enzyme PDE that converts ATP to inactive 5' AMP. 15). 14). PLC hydrolyses membrane phospholipid phosphatidylinositol biphosphate (PIP2) to a cytoplasmic second messenger, inositol triphosphate (IP3), and to a membrane messenger, diacylglycerol (DAG).

Substitution of serine or threonine for tyrosine phosphorylations impairs insulin signaling and sensitivity. PKC also can activate phospholipase A2, which facilitates production of proinflammatory eicosanoid molecules from arachidonic fatty acid. 2). One of these effects is stimulation of synthesis of NO from the amino acid L-arginine (discussed in chapter 2). PKC also has genomic effects through activation of a TF activator protein-1 (AP-1) that consists of proto-oncogenes c-jun and c-fos. AP-1 binding to DNA can activate both kinases and phosphatases.
