BACKGROUND Diabetic nephropathy was one of the most serious and harmful diabetic complications, characterized by progressive loss of renal function and renal fibrosis. Aerobic exercise training is an important non-pharmacologic method to prevent and treat diabetes mellitus and diabetic complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS Intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of streptozocin (STZ) was used to construct a type 1 diabetic mouse model. Renal function and mitochondrial function were measured by urinary protein level, Masson staining and ATP, superoxide production, and membrane potential, respectively. The purpose of the research was to explore the effect of aerobic exercise training on renal and renal mitochondrial function, as well as the expression of Sirt1and PGC1α in type-1 diabetic mice. RESULTS Sedentary diabetic mice exhibited increased urinary protein level, blood glucose, and collagen deposition in renal tissues compared with sedentary control mice, which were significantly mitigated by aerobic exercise training. Diabetic mice displayed renal tissue mitochondrial dysfunction (decreased mitochondrial ATP production and membrane potential), as well as increased mitochondrial superoxide production, which were reversed by aerobic exercise. By using Western blot analysis, we identified the decreased expression of Sirt1 and PGC1α in the renal tissue of diabetic mice, which were partly reversed by aerobic exercise training. Data showed that silencing of Sirt1 abrogated the beneficial effect of aerobic exercise training against diabetes-induced mitochondrial abnormalities and renal damage in mice. CONCLUSIONS Aerobic exercise training alleviates diabetes-induced renal injury by improving mitochondrial function.

Aerobic exercise is as important for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) as for the general population; however, the approach to aerobic training may require some adaptation. The objective o...
The objective of this study was to investigate the potential of aerobic exercise training (AET) to prevent kidney lipid accumulation and the contribution of renal metabolism to mediate this response.
What is the central question of this study? Can phenotypic traits associated with low response to one mode of training be extrapolated to other exercise-inducible phenotypes? The present study investi...
Aerobic exercise interventions are increasingly being prescribed for concussion rehabilitation, but whether aerobic training protocols influence clinical concussion diagnosis and management assessment...
Cognition, along with aerobic and muscular fitness, declines with age. Although research has shown that resistance and aerobic exercise may improve cognition, no consensus exists supporting the use of...
Background: Patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular diseases compared to the healthy population. Aerobic exercise training is one of the recommen...
The purpose of this study is to compare a 4-week, moderately intensive, lab and home-based aerobic exercise program versus exercise plus cognitive training. Participants will include indiv...
Participants who train at The Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention, will undergo testing of muscular strength, range of motion, flexibility, aerobic capacity and muscular endurance....
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of two different types of exercise, aerobic exercise training (AET) and resistance exercise training (RET), on quality of life (QoL) in ...
This study evaluates the effects of the combined exercise training (aerobic more resistance) and of the aerobic exercise training isolated compared to control group, which performed only s...
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.
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
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.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
