Why Does Exercise â€œTriggerâ€? Adaptive Protective Responses in the Heart?
Numerous epidemiological studies suggest that individuals who exercise have decreased cardiac morbidity and mortality. Pre-clinical studies in animal models also find clear cardioprotective phenotypes in animals that ...
The â€œGoldilocks Zoneâ€? from a redox perspectiveâ€”Adaptive vs. deleterious responses to oxidative stress in striated muscle
