WelcomeThe Guttridge Lab at Ohio State investigates the role of the nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB) family of transcription factors in the growth and development of skeletal muscle. Recent lab findings have supported the idea that NF-κB functions as an inhibitor of cellular differentiation and have further elucidated the many mechanisms by which this occurs. Current projects in the lab are investigating the NF-κB signaling in myogenesis, rhabdomyosarcoma, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and cancer cachexia.
This website details the investigation of the effect of cellular differentiation on the anti-apoptotic properties of skeletal muscle cells.
