The enzyme carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT) I is a major regulator of mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation in vertebrates. Numerous genome duplication events throughout evolution have given rise to three (in mammals) or multiple (in fish) genetically and functionally different isoforms of this enzyme. In particular, these isoforms represent a(More)
Exercise under acute hypoxia elicits a large increase in blood lactate concentration ([La](b)) compared with normoxic exercise. However, several studies in humans show that with the transition to chronic hypoxia, exercise [La](b) returns to normoxic levels. Although extensively examined over the last decades, the muscle-specific mechanisms responsible for(More)
BACKGROUND In mammals, environmental challenges often result in physical and metabolic cardiac remodeling (i.e., hypertrophy and a shift from lipid to carbohydrate oxidation). While chronic hypoxia and cold are both known to elicit cardiac changes, little is known about their combined effects. METHODS To investigate the cumulated effects of these two(More)
Prolonged endurance exercise and fasting are two major metabolic challenges facing Pacific salmon during spawning migrations that often occur over 1,000 km. Because both prolonged exercise and fasting stimulate the oxidation of lipids, particularly in heavily recruited tissues such as muscle, we sought to investigate the regulatory mechanisms that establish(More)
