Neuronal control of bone and muscle

Abstract

The functional interplay between bone and muscle that enables locomotion is a fundamental aspect of daily life. However, other interactions between bone and muscle continue to attract attention as our understanding of the breath and importance of this inter-relationship continues to expand. Of particular interest is the regulatory connection between bone and muscle, which adds a new insight to the coordination of the bone/muscle unit. We have appreciated the importance of neuronal signaling to the control of bone turnover and muscle contraction, but recent data indicate that neuronal inputs control a far wider range of bone and muscle physiology than previously appreciated. This review outlines the role of the sympathetic nervous system and neuronal/neuropeptide inputs upon the regulation of bone and muscle tissue, and the potential for co-regulatory actions, particularly involving the sympathetic nervous system.
