Healthy aging interventions encompass regular exercise to prevent mitochondrial dysfunction, key player in sarcopenia pathogenesis. Mitochondrial biogenesis has been well documented, but mitochondrial remodeling in response to exercise training is poorly understood. Here we investigated fusion, fission and mitophagy before and after an exercise intervention in older adults.

Mitochondria exist as a morphologically plastic network driven by cellular bioenergetic demand. Induction of fusion and fission machinery allows the organelle to regulate quality control and substrate...
Skeletal muscle mitochondria are essential in providing the energy required for locomotion. In response to contractile activity, the production of mitochondria is upregulated to meet the energy demand...
The traditional view of mitochondria as isolated, spherical, energy producing organelles, is undergoing a revolutionary change. Emerging data show that mitochondria form a dynamic reticulum that is re...
Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD) is a bilateral progressive corneal endothelial disease characterized by guttae, which present as partial Descemet membrane thickening, inducing corneal edema...
The role of mitochondria in the development of skeletal muscle insulin resistance has been an area of intense investigation and debate for over 20 years. The mitochondria is a multifaceted organelle t...
In recent years, evidence has shown that mitochondrial dysfunction plays an important role in the development of age-related muscle decline that may lead to frailty. During aging, there i...
Type 2 diabetes are characterized by insulin resistance in skeletal muscle. Insulin resistance plays a major role for the increased risk of heart disease seen in type 2 diabetes. No specif...
Skeletal muscle dysfunction (sarcopenia) is an under-recognized target organ complication of CKD with substantial adverse clinical consequences of disability, hospitalization, and death. S...
Chronic kidney disease is associated with the loss of skeletal muscle mass and function. This process detrimentally impacts mobility, functional independence, and quality of life. Mounting...
As people grow older skeletal muscle gradually becomes smaller and weaker, causing reduced mobility and quality of life. To understand and reverse this negative process investigators need ...
Mitochondria of skeletal and smooth muscle. It does not include myocardial mitochondria for which MITOCHONDRIA, HEART is available.
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 continuous remodeling of MITOCHONDRIA shape by fission and fusion in response to physiological conditions.
A heterogeneous group of inherited MYOPATHIES, characterized by wasting and weakness of the SKELETAL MUSCLE. They are categorized by the sites of MUSCLE WEAKNESS; AGE OF ONSET; and INHERITANCE PATTERNS.
A subtype of mitochondrial ADP, ATP translocase found primarily in heart muscle (MYOCARDIUM) and skeletal muscle (MUSCLE, SKELETAL).
