ArticleExercise training reverses impaired skeletal muscle metabolism induced by artificial selection for low aerobic capacityHawley, John AWe have used a novel model of genetically imparted endurance exercise capacity and metabolic health to study the genetic and environmental contributions to skeletal muscle glucose and lipid metabolism. We hypothesized that metabolic abnormalities asso . . .
ArticleResistance training enhances components of the insulin signaling cascade in normal and high-fat-fed rodent skeletal muscleCrain, Andrew M.Our laboratory recently reported that chronic resistance training (RT) improved insulin-stimulated glucose transport in normal rodent skeletal muscle, owing, in part, to increased GLUT-4 protein concentration (Yaspelkis BB III, Singh MK, Trevino B, Kr . . .
ArticleLow intrinsic running capacity is associated with reduced skeletal muscle substrate oxidation and lower mitochondrial content in white skeletal muscleKoch, Lauren G.Chronic metabolic diseases develop from the complex interaction of environmental and genetic factors, although the extent to which each contributes to these disorders is unknown. Here, we test the hypothesis that artificial selection for low intrinsic . . .
