nervosvalová vřeténka

Skeletal muscle structures that function as the mechanoreceptors responsible for the stretch or myotactic reflex (REFLEX, STRETCH). They are composed of a bundle of encapsulated SKELETAL MUSCLE FIBERS, i.e., the intrafusal fibers (nuclear bag1 fibers, nuclear bag2 fibers, and nuclear chain fibers) innervated by sensory neurons.
MSH

The Muscle Spindle is composed of intrafusal fibers that are located within and run parallel to the extrafusal fibers of skeletal muscle. When the extrafusal fibers are stretched, the intrafusal fibers of the spindle stretch as well. When stretching occurs, the sensory neuron from the muscle spindle signals the motor neurons located within the ventral horn of the spinal cord. This signal causes the motor neurons to fire, resulting in contraction of the muscle. This reflex arc provides negative feedback. The muscular contraction induced by the stretching works against or negates further muscle stretch. This mechanism helps to maintain proper muscle tension or tone. Although the muscle spindle helps to maintain proper muscle tension, unlike the Golgi tendon organ, it is not an indicator of muscle tension, but rather of muscle length.

poly(ADP-ribosa)-polymerasy

The human protein poly(ADP ribose) polymerase protein (1013aa, ~113 kDa) is encoded by the PARP1 gene (PARP1). Poly(ADP ribose) polymerase (PARP) is a cytosolic protein, and when activated is cleaved into two fragments of 89kd and 24kd. The enzyme modifies various nuclear proteins by poly ADP-ribosylation. The protein is involved in the regulation of various important cellular processes such as differentiation, proliferation, tumor transformation, and recovery from DNA damage. Its inhibition has been studied in cancerous cells and degenerative diseases to demonstrate how apoptosis can be inhibited when the PARP is inactive or absent.
NCI

An enzyme involved in many functions of the cell, including the repair of DNA damage. DNA damage may be caused by normal cell actions, UV light, some anticancer drugs, and radiation used to treat cancer. Inhibitors of PARP-1 are being studied in the treatment of cancer.
