  1. pmc QTL Analysis of Type I and Type IIA Fibers in Soleus Muscle in a Cross between LG/J and SM/J Mouse Strains
    Andrew M Carroll
    School of Medical Sciences, College of Life Sciences and Medicine, University of Aberdeen Aberdeen, UK
    Front Genet 2:99. 2011
    ..Our results provide the evidence that the intercross between the SM/J and LG/J strains is a promising model to search for genes affecting muscle fiber properties...
  2. pmc Analyses of muscle spindles in the soleus of six inbred mouse strains
    Arimantas Lionikas
    School of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK
    J Anat 223:289-96. 2013
    ..We conclude that abundance of muscle spindles and their intrafusal-fibre composition are substantially determined by genetic factors, which are different from those affecting muscle size and properties of the extrafusal fibres...
  3. pmc Resolving candidate genes of mouse skeletal muscle QTL via RNA-Seq and expression network analyses
    Arimantas Lionikas
    School of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, AB25 2ZD, UK
    BMC Genomics 13:592. 2012
    ..To facilitate nomination of the candidate genes responsible for these differences we examined the transcriptome of the tibialis anterior (TA) muscle of each strain by RNA-Seq...
  4. pmc QTL analyses of temporal and intensity components of home-cage activity in KJR and C57BL/6J strains
    Juzoh Umemori
    Mouse Genomics Resource Laboratory, National Institute of Genetics, Mishima, Shizuoka 411 8540, Japan
    BMC Genet 10:40. 2009
    ..Here, we report on quantitative trait loci for different components of spontaneous activity, an important step towards dissection of the underlying genetic mechanisms...

    Arimantas Lionikas
    School of Medical Sciences, College of Life Sciences and Medicine, University of Aberdeen, Foresterhill, Aberdeen AB25 2ZD, Scotland, UK
    J Hered 101:360-7. 2010
    ..A panel of BXD RI strains is a useful tool in exploring the genetic mechanisms underlying SFAA and improving our understanding of musculoskeletal development...

    A Lionikas
    School of Medical Sciences, College of Life Sciences and Medicine, University of Aberdeen, Foresterhill, Aberdeen, United Kingdom
    Physiol Genomics 42:33-8. 2010
    ..Combination of analyses in an F(2) and AI was an effective strategy to detect and refine the QTL in a genome-wide manner. The achieved resolution facilitates further elucidation of the underlying genetic mechanisms affecting muscle mass...
  7. pmc Genetic and genomic analyses of musculoskeletal differences between BEH and BEL strains
    Arimantas Lionikas
    School of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, United Kingdom
    Physiol Genomics 45:940-7. 2013
    ..In conclusion, contrasting muscle traits and genomic and gene expression differences between BEH and BEL strains provide a promising model for the search for genes involved in muscle growth and musculoskeletal morphogenesis. ..
  8. pmc Constitutive expression of Yes-associated protein (Yap) in adult skeletal muscle fibres induces muscle atrophy and myopathy
    Robert N Judson
    School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 8:e59622. 2013
    ..To conclude, high Yap activity in muscle fibres does not induce fibre hypertrophy nor fibre type changes but instead results in a reversible atrophy and deterioration...

    Aivaras Ratkevicius
    School of Medical Sciences, College of Life Sciences and Medicine, University of Aberdeen, Foresterhill, Aberdeen, United Kingdom
    Physiol Genomics 42:96-102. 2010
    ..In summary, H55N polymorphism in Cs could be the underlying cause of low CS activity and its high affinity for substrates in A/J mice compared with other strains. This SNP might also play a role in resistance to obesity of A/J mice...
