Olson's uses what he describes as “a molecular GPS device” to pinpoint one defective gene out of billions and he then tries to correct the gene before too much muscle loss occurs. “Once you fix the error, you fix the cause of the disease,” he explained ...

Genetic Compensation Mechanism Could Aid in Treatment of Muscle Disorders, Study Suggests - Muscular Dystrophy News

Muscular Dystrophy News
Using zebra fish and performing a variety of genetic, molecular biology, and movement experiments, the investigators revealed that an actin (actc1b) mutant exhibits only mild muscle defects due to a compensatory mechanism. The mechanism is ...

Everything that is conceived by our brain finds its expression in the muscular system. You can express an idea by the help of muscles of larynx, tongue and mouth (act of speaking), the muscles of fingers (act of writing) or by the skeletal muscles (act of dancing, running, etc.) Body muscles help an individual to stand erect, walk, move, bend and pick up objects. They help in breathing, blood circulation and functioning of other internal organ
