SKELETAL MUSCLE LIPID PARTITIONING : CONSEQUENCES OF ALTERATIONS IN ACYL-COA SYNTHETASE-5 AND DIGLYCERIDE ACYLTRANFERASE-1 EXPRESSION
(East Carolina University, 2011)
An oversupply of fatty acids and inadequacies in their partitioning toward oxidation and/or storage will lead to disruptions in cellular homeostasis. Reductions in mitochondrial content and lower rates of fatty acid ...
Effect of Acute Exercise or Fasting on Mitochondrial Function and High Fat Diet-Induced Insulin Resistance
(East Carolina University, 2009)
A high-fat diet leads to an accumulation of lipid in skeletal muscle, and the development of both mitochondrial dysfunction and insulin resistance. Recently, our lab reported that lipid overload leads to elevated ...
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 ...
SKELETAL MUSCLE METABOLIC FLEXIBILITY IMPAIRMENTS IN RESPONSE TO LIPID WITH OBESITY : EFFECT OF EXERCISE TRAINING
(East Carolina University, 2012)
Obese individuals exhibit skeletal muscle metabolic inflexibility by failing to increase fat oxidation and genes linked with mitochondrial biogenesis in response to a high-fat diet (HFD) and lipid incubation in cell culture. ...
