• Mechanisms regulating skeletal muscle satellite cell cycle progression 

    Rathbone, Christopher R., 1977- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    Skeletal muscle fibers are multinucleated with each myonucleus capable of governing a finite cytoplasmic volume. In healthy skeletal muscle, myonuclear number decreases with muscle atrophy and fiber damage and increases ...
  • Modulation of the ACTH response to stress by IL-6, nitric oxide, diet and exercise 

    Jankord, Ryan, 1977- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    The release of ACTH from the anterior pituitary is one step in the activation of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis. The HPA axis is activated in response to stress and the secretion of ACTH is under the control ...
  • Sensory integration during blood loss in conscious rabbits 

    Shafford, Heidi L. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    Central nervous system integration of sensory inputs is critical for orchestrating physiological responses to stress. The focus of my doctoral research was investigating the physiological consequences of sensory stimulation ...
