Examining the Impact of Blood Flow Restricted Aerobic Exercise on PGC-1α mRNA Expression in Young Healthy Males

2019-07-10 22:21:18 | BioPortfolio


This crossover study investigates the effects of restricting arterial blood flow during cycling exercise on PGC-1α and its upstream signalling pathways. In a randomized order, participants will exercise once for 30 minutes with restricted blood flow and then will exercise once for 30 minutes with no blood flow restriction.

Examining The Effect of Blood Flow Restricted Aerobic Training on Mitochondrial Adaptations in Young Healthy Adults

This parallel-arm trial study investigates the effects of restricting arterial blood flow during cycling exercise on citrate synthase. Participants will be randomized to either a blood flo...

The Production of Reactive Oxygen Species in Response to Glutathione Supplementation and Acute Exercise

Objectives: The research focus of the study is the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) in response to glutathione (GSH) supplementation and i...

Time-course of Mitochondrial Biogenic Gene and Protein Expression in Exercised Human Skeletal Muscle

This study examines the impact of exercise intensity on the 12-hour time-course of mitochondrial biogenic gene and protein expression in human skeletal muscle. Briefly, participants will p...

The Effects of Exercise Versus Inactivity on People With Mitochondrial Muscle Disease

Mitochondrial myopathies include various inherited diseases that are caused by damage to the mitochondria, energy-producing structures that fuel the body's processes. The main symptoms are...

Whey Protein Support to Metabolic and Performance Adaptations in Response HIIT

High intensity interval training (HIIT) has recently emerged as a time efficient alternative to conventional endurance exercise, conferring similar or superior benefits in terms of metabol...

Forty high-intensity interval training sessions blunt exercise-induced changes in the nuclear protein content of PGC-1α and p53 in human skeletal muscle.

Exercise-induced increases in peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator-1α (PGC-1α) and p53 protein content in the nucleus mediate the initial phase of exercise-induced mitochondrial...

PGC-1α regulates mitochondrial properties beyond biogenesis with aging and exercise training.

Impaired mitochondrial function has been implicated in the pathogenesis of age-associated metabolic diseases through regulation of cellular redox balance. Exercise training is known to promote mitocho...

Standardized L. Extract Increases Exercise Endurance Through Stimulation of Mitochondrial Biogenesis.

Looking beyond PGC-1α: Emerging regulators of exercise-induced skeletal muscle mitochondrial biogenesis and their activation by dietary compounds.

Despite its widespread acceptance as the "master regulator" of mitochondrial biogenesis (i.e. the expansion of the mitochondrial reticulum), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) gamma coa...

Combined overexpression of SIRT1 and knockout of GCN5 in adult skeletal muscle does not affect glucose homeostasis or exercise performance in mice.

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-1...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

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.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

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.
