Since the middle of the last century we have progressively built up a comprehensive descriptive model of the allied mechanisms that maintain our muscles at a size and strength appropriate to the functional demands upon them and that rapidly repair damaged muscles. This volume is an assemblage of the collective experience from the pick of major research groups investigating these aspects of muscle cell biology. It provides up-to-date coverage and presents a broad range of topics.THE PATHOBIOLOGY OF MUSCLE STRAINS In strains, the myofibers are exposed to such an excessive intrinsic tensile force that fullblown shearing injury occurs, i.e. not only the myofibers rupture but also their basal lamina as well as mysialanbsp;...
