Intramuscular lipid oxidation and obesity
(East Carolina University, 2008-04)
There is an accumulating amount of evidence indicating that lipid oxidation is depressed in the skeletal muscle of obese individuals. Decrements in fatty acid oxidation (FAO) have been reported with obesity in models ranging ...
A sex-specific relationship between capillary density and anaerobic threshold
(East Carolina University, 2009-04)
Although both capillary density and peak oxygen consumption (VO2) improve with exercise training, it is difficult to find a relationship between these two measures. It has been suggested that peak VO2 may be more related ...
Intramuscular Lipid Metabolism, Insulin Action and Obesity
(East Carolina University, 2009-01)
With the increasing prevalence of obesity, research has focused on the molecular mechanism(s) linking obesity and skeletal muscle insulin resistance. Metabolic alterations within muscle, such as changes in the cellular ...
