2. Nutrient, hormonal and exercise stimuli can signal through mTORC1 to control the rate of muscle protein synthesis, an important modulator of muscle growth. The first study to demonstrate the importance of the mTORC1 signaling pathway in the control of in vivo muscle hypertrophy found a positive correlation between the acute phosphorylation of the downstream mTORC1 effector, p70 ribosomal S6 kinase 1 (S6K1), and the increase in muscle mass over 6 weeks of electrical stimulation in rodent hindlimb muscles [45].

Inflammation Inflammation, along with oxidative stress, increases with aging [132,133] and both may be significant contributors to endothelial dysfunction and sarcopenia [134]. TNF-α in particular may reduce endothelial-dependent dilation by disrupting intercellular communication [135], thereby disrupting the coordination of the vasodilatory response. Recent studies further suggest that inhibition of TNF-α may return vascular perfusion to youthful levels in older animals [136]. Increased oxidative stress, can also inactivate tetrahydrobiopterin, a cofactor for the production of nitric oxide, reducing nitric oxide production [137].
