Autophagic response to a single bout of moderate exercise in murine skeletal muscle.
Summary of "Autophagic response to a single bout of moderate exercise in murine skeletal muscle."
The effect of a single bout of exercise on autopahgy in murine gastrocnemius muscle was investigated. Autophagy is a process for the degradation system of cytoplasmic components, which may help maintain intracellular quality control of cell survival and turnover under normal conditions. The present study investigated the changes of autophagy-related proteins including microtubule-associated protein 1b light chain 3 (LC3), Beclin-1, Atg7 (autophagy-related gene 7), conjugation form of Atg12 to Atg5, lysosome-associated membrane protein (LAMP2a), and muscle-specific RING finger protein-1 (MURF-1) protein level in gastrocnemius muscle after a single bout of treadmill exercise. Mice exercised on a treadmill for 50 min at a speed of 12.3 m/min with a slope of 5°. The animals were sacrificed by cervical dislocation 0, 3, 6, or 12 h after exercise, and muscle samples were collected immediately. Western blot analysis demonstrated that the autophagy marker LC3-II was significantly decreased during the recovery period (3, 6, and 12 h) whereas there was no decrease immediately after exercise (0 h). To identify factors related to this decrease, autophagosome component proteins were examined in murine gastrocnemius muscle. A decrease in Beclin-1, Atg7, and LAMP2a during recovery period was concomitant with the decreased level of LC3-II. Additionally, MuRF-1 expression was significantly increased after a single bout of exercise. This study is the first to demonstrate autophasic related protein expression after a single bout of treadmill exercise and our results suggest that a single bout of treadmill exercise attenuates the autophagic response in murine skeletal muscle.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Muscle Fibers, Skeletal
Large, multinucleate single cells, either cylindrical or prismatic in shape, that form the basic unit of SKELETAL MUSCLE. They consist of MYOFIBRILS enclosed within and attached to the SARCOLEMMA. They are derived from the fusion of skeletal myoblasts (MYOBLASTS, SKELETAL) into a syncytium, followed by differentiation.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
Abelson Murine Leukemia Virus
A replication-defective strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) capable of transforming lymphoid cells and producing a rapidly progressing lymphoid leukemia after superinfection with FRIEND MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; MOLONEY MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; or RAUSCHER VIRUS.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
IL-6 is a biologically active cytokine released during exercise by contracting skeletal muscles. It appears to be highly involved in the regulation of muscles energy substrate utilization. Whether an...
