Metabolic Inflexibility in Skeletal Muscle With Obesity
(East Carolina University, 2009)
The skeletal muscle of obese individuals has a reduced capacity to oxidize lipids. The hypothesis to be tested in this dissertation is that the ability to regulate lipid oxidation in response to lipid exposure is impaired ...
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. ...
