Muscle homeostasis is guaranteed by a delicate balance between synthesis and degradation
of cell proteins and its alteration leads to muscle wasting and diseases.
In this review, we describe the major anabolic pathways that are involved in muscle growth and homeostasis
and the proteolytic systems that are over-activated in muscle pathologies. Modulation of
these pathways comprises an attractive target for drug intervention.
