HIF prolyl hydroxylase inhibition protects skeletal muscle from eccentric contraction-induced injury

Abstract Background In muscular dystrophy and old age, skeletal muscle repair is compromised leading to fibrosis and fatty tissue accumulation. Therefore, therapies that protect skeletal muscle or enhance repair would be valuable medical treatments. Hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) regulate gene tra...
