Both human and animal studies have shown mitochondrial and contractile dysfunction in hearts of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Exercise training has shown positive effects on cardiac function, but its effect on the mitochondria have been insufficiently explored. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of exercise training on mitochondrial function in T2DM hearts. We divided T2DM mice (db/db) into a sedentary and an interval training group at 8 weeks of age and used heterozygote db/+ as controls. After 8 weeks of training, we evaluated mitochondrial structure and function, as well as the levels of mRNA and proteins involved in key metabolic processes from the left ventricle. db/db animals showed decreased oxidative phosphorylation capacity and fragmented mitochondria. Mitochondrial respiration showed a blunted response to Ca along with reduced protein levels of the mitochondrial calcium uniporter. Exercise training ameliorated the reduced oxidative phosphorylation in complex (C) I + II, CII and CIV, but not CI or Ca response. Mitochondrial fragmentation was partially restored. mRNA levels of isocitrate, succinate and oxoglutarate dehydrogenase were increased in db/db mice and normalized by exercise training. Exercise training induced an upregulation of two transcripts of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma coactivator 1 alpha (PGC1α1 and PGC1α4) previously linked to endurance training adaptations and strength training adaptations, respectively. The T2DM heart showed mitochondrial dysfunction at multiple levels and exercise training ameliorated some, but not all mitochondrial dysfunctions.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.
Diseases caused by abnormal function of the MITOCHONDRIA. They may be caused by mutations, acquired or inherited, in mitochondrial DNA or in nuclear genes that code for mitochondrial components. They may also be the result of acquired mitochondria dysfunction due to adverse effects of drugs, infections, or other environmental causes.
A transient left ventricular apical dysfunction or ballooning accompanied by electrocardiographic (ECG) T wave inversions. This abnormality is associated with high levels of CATECHOLAMINES, either administered or endogenously secreted from tumor or during extreme stress.
A form of ventricular pre-excitation characterized by a short PR interval and a long QRS interval with a delta wave. In this syndrome, atrial impulse conducts to the HEART VENTRICLES via an accessory pathway located between the wall of the right or left atria and the ventricles, known as the bundle of Kent. The inherited form can be caused by mutation of PRKAG2 gene encoding a gamma-2 regulatory subunit of AMP-activated protein kinase.
