Exercise Training Amount and Intensity Effects on Metabolic Syndrome (From Studies of a Targeted Risk Reduction Intervention through Defined Exercise)
(East Carolina University, 2007-12-15)
Although exercise improves individual risk factors of the metabolic syndrome (MS), there is little research on the effect of exercise on MS as a whole. The objective of this study was to determine how much exercise is ...
Impaired overload-induced muscle growth is associated with diminished translational signalling in aged rat fast-twitch skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2006-07-01)
Impaired overload-induced protein synthesis and growth in aged fast-twitch skeletal muscle may result from diminished responsiveness of signalling intermediates controlling protein translation. Yet, potential age-related ...
The Intensive Diet and Exercise for Arthritis (IDEA) trial: design and rationale
(East Carolina University, 2009-07-28)
Background: Obesity is the most modifiable risk factor, and dietary induced weight loss potentially the best nonpharmacologic intervention to prevent or to slow osteoarthritis (OA) disease progression. We are currently ...
Regulation of GLUT4 expression in denervated skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2009-03)
Denervation by sciatic nerve resection causes decreased muscle glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) expression, but little is known about the signaling events that cause this decrease. Experiments were designed to test the ...
Increased Secretion and Expression of Myostatin in Skeletal Muscle From Extremely Obese Women
(East Carolina University, 2009-01)
OBJECTIVE- Obesity is associated with endocrine abnormalities that predict the progression of insulin resistance to type 2 diabetes. Because skeletal muscle has been shown to secrete proteins that could be used as biomarkers, ...
The Unplugged Office Space and the Role of Sustainable Design in Higher Education
(East Carolina University, 2008)
This article looks at sustainability in higher education and office environments, specifically proposing a green redesign of the Greenville, NC V.O.A. site.
Dietary carbohydrate intake and high sensitivity C reactive protein in at-risk women and men
(East Carolina University, 2007-11)
Background— The quality and quantity of dietary carbohydrate intake, measured as dietary glycemic load (GL), is associated with a number of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and, in healthy young women, is related ...
Muscle work is biased toward energy generation over dissipation in non-level running
(East Carolina University, 2008-12-05)
This study tested the hypothesis that skeletal muscles generate more mechanical energy in gait tasks that raise the center of mass compared to the mechanical energy they dissipate in gait tasks that lower the center of ...
Does Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgical Treatment Alter Exercise Tolerance in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation and Mitral Regurgitation at Seven to Eleven Weeks Post-Operative?
(East Carolina University, 2009)
In the current study, we examined if exercise tolerance was going to be reduced in atrial fibrillation and mitral valve regurgitation patients post a minimally invasive surgery seven to eleven weeks when compared to ...
Impact of Hormone Replacement Therapy on Exercise Training-Induced Improvements in Insulin Action in Sedentary Overweight Adults
(East Carolina University, 2008-07)
Exercise training (ET) and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) are both recognized influences on insulin action, but the influence of HRT on responses to ET has not been examined. In order to determine if HRT use provided ...
