Abstract

Sarcopenia is associated with morbidity and mortality. Cellular pathways involved in the regulation of growth and atrophy affect myofibre size and subsequently, muscle strength. The objective of this study was to investigate whether skeletal muscle gene expression was associated with altered lean mass and grip strength in community-dwelling older men.
