Mitochondrial Energy Metabolism in Obese Women

2017-04-19 06:08:27 | BioPortfolio


Considering that the failure of the treatment of obesity is justified by the multifactorial pathophysiology of this morbidity, the present project has the following hypotheses:

1. The occurrence of obesity is due to the derange,ent of mitochondrial energy metabolism ;

2. The unbalance is therapeutically modified through physical training ;

3. Obesity courses with the break-down in energy metabolism mitochondrial disease associated with systemic inflammatory characteristics that can be corrected through a combined long-term physical training program.

This study have as objective : to analyse changes in mitochondrial function, inflammatory profile, oxidative stress and energy metabolism caused by concurrent physical training in obese women.


Specific objectives:

Body composition by deuterium oxide; Metabolic rate of resting and oxidation of substrates by indirect calorimetry; Proinflammatory cytokines Anti-inflammatory cytokines Oxidative Stress: Malondialdehyde, Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione-Peroxidase; Fatty acids: ceramide and palmitate; Mitochondrial respiration and citrate synthase enzyme; Quantify and qualify: mitochondrial number, endoplasmic reticulum structure, adipose cell size; Gene expression, quantify by microscopy and analyze the protein by western blot.

The study began with 20 women, however, there was withdrawal of 6, ending with 14 women.
