Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) and general control of amino acid synthesis 5 (GCN5) regulate mitochondrial biogenesis via opposing modulation of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ coactivator-1α (PGC-1α) acetylation status and activity. However, the combined contribution of SIRT1 and GCN5 to skeletal muscle metabolism and endurance performance is unknown. In this study, we investigated the impact of combined skeletal muscle-specific overexpression of SIRT1 and deletion of GCN5 on glucose homeostasis, skeletal muscle mitochondrial biogenesis and function, and the metabolic adaptation to endurance exercise training in mice. We generated mice with combined and tamoxifen-inducible skeletal muscle-specific overexpression of SIRT1 and knockout of GCN5 (dTG) and floxed (wildtype [WT]) littermates using a Cre-LoxP approach. All mice were treated with tamoxifen at 5-6 weeks of age and 4-7 weeks later we assessed glucose homeostasis, skeletal muscle contractile function, mitochondrial function, and the effects of 14 days of voluntary wheel running on expression of metabolic proteins and exercise capacity. There was no difference in oral glucose tolerance, skeletal muscle contractile function, mitochondrial abundance or maximal respiratory capacity between dTG and WT mice. Additionally, there were no genotype differences in exercise performance and markers of mitochondrial biogenesis after 14 days of voluntary wheel running. These results demonstrate that combined overexpression of SIRT1 and loss of GCN5 does not promote metabolic remodeling in skeletal muscle of sedentary or exercise-trained mice.

Elongated, spindle-shaped, quiescent myoblasts lying in close contact with adult skeletal muscle. They are thought to play a role in muscle repair and regeneration.
An autosomal recessively inherited glycogen storage disease caused by GLUCAN 1,4-ALPHA-GLUCOSIDASE deficiency. Large amounts of GLYCOGEN accumulate in the LYSOSOMES of skeletal muscle (MUSCLE, SKELETAL); HEART; LIVER; SPINAL CORD; and BRAIN. Three forms have been described: infantile, childhood, and adult. The infantile form is fatal in infancy and presents with hypotonia and a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CARDIOMYOPATHY, HYPERTROPHIC). The childhood form usually presents in the second year of life with proximal weakness and respiratory symptoms. The adult form consists of a slowly progressive proximal myopathy.

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.
A subtype of mitochondrial ADP, ATP translocase found primarily in heart muscle (MYOCARDIUM) and skeletal muscle (MUSCLE, SKELETAL).
