Physiol Genomics. 2011 Jul 26. [Epub ahead of print]
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21791639
NOTE: From abstract: "The degradation following casting was ubiquitin-proteasome-mediated, while degradation following tenotomy was lysosomal and matrix-metalloproteinase (MMP)-mediated, suggesting a possible role for autophagy. These data suggest that there are multiple mechanisms leading to muscle atrophy and that specific therapeutic agents may be necessary to combat atrophy resulting from different conditions."
