  • Longitudinal Muscle and Myocellular Changes in Community-Dwelling Men Over Two Decades of Successful Aging : The ULSAM Cohort Revisited
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: ; 75:4, s. 654-663
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Participants of the population-based Uppsala longitudinal study of adult men (ULSAM) cohort reaching more than 88 years of age (survivors, S) were investigated at age 70, 82, and 88-90 and compared at 70 years with non-survivors (NS) not reaching 82 years. Body composition, muscle mass and muscle histology were remarkably stable over 18 years of advanced aging in S. Analysis of genes involved in muscle remodeling showed that S had higher mRNA levels of myogenic differentiation factors (Myogenin, MyoD), embryonic myosin (eMyHC), enzymes involved in regulated breakdown of myofibrillar proteins (Smad2, Trim32, MuRF1,) and NCAM compared with healthy adult men (n = 8). S also had higher mRNA levels of eMyHC, Smad 2, MuRF1 compared with NS. At 88 years, S expressed decreased levels of Myogenin, MyoD, eMyHC, NCAM and Smad2 towards those seen in NS at 70 years. The gene expression pattern of S at 70 years was likely beneficial since they maintained muscle fiber histology and appendicular lean body mass until advanced age. The expression pattern at 88 years may indicate a diminished muscle remodeling coherent with a decline of reinnervation capacity and/or plasticity at advanced age.

  • Hand muscle pathology after long-term vibration exposure
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: J Hand Surg [Br]. - : SAGE Publications. - 0266-7681. ; 29:5, s. 431-7
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The morphology of the abductor pollicis brevis muscle was studied in 20 patients suffering from hand-arm vibration syndrome. The main morphological changes observed were centrally located myonuclei and fibre type grouping (found in all 20 muscle biopsies), angulated muscle fibres (found in 19 biopsies), ring fibres and regenerating fibres (found in 18 biopsies) and fibrosis (found in 17 biopsies). The observed abnormalities are believed to reflect damage to both the muscle fibres and the motor nerve. The changes were related to different vibration exposure parameters. The number of fibres demonstrating centrally located nuclei correlated significantly with the cumulative vibration exposure, while the number of angulated fibres correlated significantly with the total vibration exposure time. This indicates that the vibrating tools may cause direct damage to muscle fibres as well as nerves.

  • Spastic wrist flexors are more severely affected than wrist extensors in children with cerebral palsy
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Dev Med Child Neurol. - 0012-1622. ; 47:6, s. 384-9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Morphological properties of skeletal muscle were compared between wrist flexors and extensors within the same children (n = 8, six females, two males; age range 4 to 9y, median age 7 y) with wrist muscle imbalance secondary to spastic cerebral palsy (CP). Five patients had hemiplegic CP, two diplegic CP, and one patient had tetraplegic CP. Muscle biopsies were taken during either tendon transfer or tendon lengthening procedures. Analyses included distribution of muscle fibre types, fibre sizes, and expression of developmental myosins. Extensor fibre area was significantly greater than flexor fibre area for type 2A fibres and type 2B fibres but not for type 1 fibres. Coefficient of variation (CV) of fibre size for all three fibre types was greater for flexors compared with extensors. The greatest CV was observed for the type 2A fibres in flexors (39.5 [3.6%]). A wide variation was observed for expression of developmental myosin with the magnitude of the expression being greater, but not statistically significant, in flexors compared with extensors (5.4/mm2 vs 0.53/mm2). These data demonstrate that significant secondary myopathy of wrist flexor muscles results from CP.

  • Intragenic deletion of TRIM32 in compound heterozygotes with sarcotubular myopathy/LGMD2H
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Human Mutation. - 1059-7794 .- 1098-1004. ; 30:9, s. E831-E844
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In 2005 the commonality of sarcotubular myopathy (STM) and limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2H (LGMD2H) was demonstrated, as both are caused by the p D487N missense mutation in TRIM32 originally found in the Manitoba Hutterite population. Recently, three novel homozygous TRIM32 mutations have been described in LGMD patients. Here we describe a three generation Swedish family clinically presenting with limb girdle muscular weakness and histological features of a microvacuolar myopathy. The two index patients were compound heterozygotes for a frameshift mutation in TRIM32 (c.1560delC ) and a 30 kb intragenic deletion, encompassing parts of intron 1 and the entire exon 2 of TRIM32. In these patients, no full-length or truncated TRIM32 could be detected. Interestingly, heterozygous family members carrying only one mutation showed mild clinical symptoms and vacuolar changes in muscle. In our family, the phenotype encompasses additionally a mild demyelinating polyneuropathic syndrome. Thus STM and LGMD2H are the result of loss of function mutations that can be either deletions or missense mutations. (c) 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

  • Cytoskeletal derangements in hereditary myopathy with a desmin L345P mutation
  • 2002
  • Ingår i: Acta Neuropathologica. - : Springer. - 0001-6322 .- 1432-0533. ; 104:5, s. 493-504

    • Patients with abnormal accumulations of desmin have been described in myopathies with or without cardiac involvement. Desmin deposits were sometimes associated with abnormal aggregates of other cytoskeletal proteins. In the present study we present how the cytoskeletal organisation of desmin, nestin, synemin, paranemin, plectin and alphaB-crystallin is altered in skeletal muscles from a patient with a L345P mutation in the desmin gene. In general, accumulations of desmin together with synemin, nestin, plectin and alphaB-crystallin were present between myofibrils and beneath the sarcolemma. However, as the biopsy samples were very myopathic, large variability in fibre size and fibre maturation was seen, thus the myofibrillar content and the cytoskeletal organisation varied considerably. In cultured satellite cells from the patient, desmin aggregates were not observed in initial passages, but occurred over time in culture in the form of perinuclear, peripheral or cytoplasmic deposits. Nestin colocalised to the abnormal desmin deposits to a larger extent than did vimentin. alphaB-Crystallin was only present in cells with a disrupted desmin network. Plectin was altered in a subset of cells with a disrupted desmin network, whereas synemin and paranemin were not detected. We conclude that the L345P desmin mutation has a profound influence on the cytoskeletal organisation both in vivo and in vitro, which reflects the pathogenesis of the desmin myopathy.

  • Cellular adaptation of the trapezius muscle in strength-trained athletes
  • 1999
  • Ingår i: Histochemistry and Cell Biology. - 0948-6143 .- 1432-119X. ; 111:3, s. 189-95
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of this study was to elucidate the cellular events that occur in the trapezius muscle following several years of strength training. In muscle biopsies from ten elite power lifters (PL) and six control subjects (C), several parameters were studied: cross-sectional area of muscle fibres, myosin heavy chain composition (MHC) and capillary supply [capillaries around fibres (CAF) and CAF/fibre area]. A method was also developed for counting the number of myonuclei and satellite cell nuclei. The proportion of fibres expressing MHC IIA, the cross-sectional area of each fibre type and the number of myonuclei, satellite cells and fibres expressing markers for early myogenesis were significantly higher in PL than in C (P<0.05). A significant correlation between the myonuclear number and the cross-sectional area was observed. Since myonuclei in mature muscle fibres are not able to divide, we suggest that the incorporation of satellite cell nuclei into muscle fibres resulted in the maintenance of a constant nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio. The presence of small diameter fibres expressing markers for early myogenesis indicates the formation of new muscle fibres.

  • The effects of different training programs on the trapezius muscle of women with work-related neck and shoulder myalgia
  • 2000
  • Ingår i: Acta Neuropathologica. - Berlin : Springer-Verlag New York. - 0001-6322 .- 1432-0533. ; 100:3, s. 253-8
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of this study was to examine the effects of training on the structural characteristics of the trapezius muscle in women with work-related trapezius myalgia. Muscle biopsies were taken before and after 10 weeks of three different training programs (strength, endurance and coordination). Enzyme-immunohistochemical analysis was performed to assess muscle fibre types, fibre area, capillary supply and cytochrome c oxidase (COX) activity. There was an increase in the proportion of type IIA fibres in strength trained group (P < 0.05). Strength training elicited a preferential increase in the area of type II fibres (P < 0.05); both strength and endurance programs induced an increase in the number of capillaries around type I and IIA muscle fibres. Finally, all training programs induced a decrease in the proportion of COX-negative fibres. In conclusion, the trapezius muscle of women with neck and shoulder myalgia is characterised by a great potential of adaptation to physical exercise over a period of 10 weeks. The significant changes in the number of capillaries and the specific changes induced by training at the level of muscle fibres might well explain the improvement of muscle function.

  • Unique basement membrane structure of human pancreatic islets : implications for beta-cell growth and differentiation
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Diabetes, obesity and metabolism. - 1462-8902 .- 1463-1326. ; 10 Suppl 4, s. 119-27
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Basement membranes (BMs) are an important part of the physiological microenvironment of pancreatic islet cells. In mouse islets, beta-cells interact directly with BMs of capillary endothelial cells. We have shown that in the human islets, the capillaries are surrounded by a double BM both in foetal and adult tissues. The endocrine islet cells are facing a BM that is separate from the endothelia. Laminins are the functionally most important component of BMs. The only laminin isoform present in the human endocrine islet BM is laminin-511 (previously known as laminin 10). The islet cells facing this BM have a strong and polarized expression of Lutheran glycoprotein, which is a well-known receptor for the laminin alpha 5 chain. Dispersed human islet cells adhere to purified human laminin-511 and the binding is equally effectively blocked by a soluble form of Lutheran as by antibody against integrin beta1. Our results reveal unique features of the BM structure of human islets, different from rodents. This information has potentially important implications for the generation of an optimal microenvironment for beta-cell function, proliferation and differentiation.
