Term Detail
MP term:skeletal muscle atrophy
MP id: MP:0009417
Definition: acquired diminution of the size of skeletal muscle tissue associated with wasting as from death and reabsorbtion of cells, diminished cellular proliferation, decreased cellular volume, pressure, ischemia, malnutrition, reduced function or malfunction, or hormonal changes; occurs with age, immobilization, weightlessness, malnutrition or denervation
Number of paths to term: 3
