Aging-induced decrease in the PPAR-α level in hearts is improved by exercise training
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-α, a transcriptional activator, regulates genes of fatty acid (FA) metabolic enzymes. To study the contribution of PPAR-α to exercise training-indu...

Long-term exercise stimulates adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase activity and subunit expression in rat visceral adipose tissue and liver.
Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is activated in response to adenosine triphosphate depletion caused by the metabolic and nutritional state. Mammalian AMPK is a heterotrimericExpand

Hereditary Dominance of Fast-Twitch Fibers in Skeletal Muscles and Relation of Thyroid Hormone under Physiological Conditions in Rats
To investigate whether muscle fiber compositions of various skeletal muscles were correlated with each other and whether muscle fiber type composition was related to the serum thyroid hormone level,Expand

Effects of T3 treatment on HSP72 and calcineurin content of functionally overloaded rat plantaris muscle.
The content of both heat shock protein 72 (HSP72) and calcineurin (CaN) in skeletal muscle fibers have been reported to be associated with the slow phenotype. The purpose of the present study was toExpand
