This is jakes field of expertise, so I just refer to him for questions like these. I told him about it so hopefully he can respond.

He told me you don't have to have satelite cell activation for newbies; but for monsters like you guys, it is likely required.

AKT I am familiar with and research in my lab. It is an upstream target of the mTOR pathway, which can increase muscle protein synthesis. Appears to be stimulated by insulin and exercise/growth factors. My research so far has not shown much evidence for leu working through this pathway to stimulate mTOR. But I digress...

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
