Effects of High-Insulin Exposure on Mitochondrial Content in Skeletal Muscle Myotubes from Lean & Severely Obese Individuals: A Time Course Analysis
(East Carolina University, 2016-08-01)
Skeletal muscle is the site at which highly regulated energetic processes take place as a means of maintaining both tissue-specific and whole-body metabolism. With the development of severe obesity (BMI [greater-than] or ...
Alterations in insulin action and contraction-mediated metabolism in myotubes derived from Roux-en-Y gastric bypass patients
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery induces various metabolic benefits in severely obese (BMI> 40 kg/m2) individuals, including improved insulin action in peripheral tissues, most notably skeletal muscle, and remission ...
Impact of Muscle Material Properties on the Hypertrophic Response of Aged Women to Resistance Exercise
(East Carolina University, 2016-07-21)
All of the reports that comprise this dissertation center around the overarching hypothesis that the attenuated response to resistance exercise observed in older adults is caused by an impaired ability of the muscle to ...
