Summary

Skeletal muscle function is dependent upon the fine control of calcium levels.

When communication of key proteins in muscle are compromised, calcium levels are uncontrolled leading to severe disabilities.

The molecular pathways that control signalling between key muscle proteins is currently unknown and shedding light on this topic will aid in the discovery of therapies for muscle-associated disabilities in disease and with aging.
