Sarcopenia (loss of muscle mass and function) universally affects the elderly and has a tremendous impact on quality of life, independent living, and healthcare costs in aging veterans. The goal of this study is to test a potential new pharmacological approach, activation of the sarcoendoplasmic reticulum (SR) calcium ATPase (SERCA) that pumps Ca2+ back into the SR following muscle contraction, to modulate sarcopenia. This work is critically important as no effective pharmacologic interventions...
