Research Topic A

Effects of exercise and inactivity in controlling the mitochondrial network and neuromuscular junction

 

Mitochondrial function and dynamics are greatly affected by exercise or inactivity in skeletal muscles of rodents and humans. Furthermore, mitochondrial alterations result in secretion of hormones and metabolites that affect physiology of distal organs in processes that are likely to involve the neuromuscular junction. Information should be obtained to differentiate between adaptive mitochondrial changes induced by exercise and maladaptive modifications associated with inactivity and aging.
