Sirtuin Mediated Effects of 36 Hour Fast and 1 Hour Exercise

2014-08-27 03:19:17 | BioPortfolio


Hypothesis: during fasting and exercise will there be an activation of sirtuins (Sirt1).

Primarily the investigators will investigate Sirt1 activity in muscle- and fat-biopsies after fasting for 36 hours and after 1 hour of ergometer-cycling at 50 Vo2max.

In addition to this the investigators will investigate the effect of fasting and exercise on the velocity of carbamide synthesis, aminoacid rate of turnover and glucose rate of turnover.

Study Design

Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Basic Science

Exercise dose and individual response of healthy adults: is it time to re-evaluate exercise responsiveness and training recommendations?

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.
