Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
In 2008 we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, research on this topic has continued to accelerate, and many new scientists have entered theExpand

Are skeletal muscle FNDC5 gene expression and irisin release regulated by exercise and related to health?
•  Contradictory findings have been reported concerning the function of irisin and its precursor gene, skeletal muscle FNDC5, in energy homeostasis and metabolic health, and the associated regulatoryExpand

Acute and long-term effects of resistance exercise with or without protein ingestion on muscle hypertrophy and gene expression
The effects of timed ingestion of high-quality protein before and after resistance exercise are not well known. In this study, young men were randomized to protein (n = 11), placebo (n = 10) andExpand

Effect of protein/essential amino acids and resistance training on skeletal muscle hypertrophy: A case for whey protein
Regardless of age or gender, resistance training or provision of adequate amounts of dietary protein (PRO) or essential amino acids (EAA) can increase muscle protein synthesis (MPS) in healthyExpand

Vitamin C and E supplementation alters protein signalling after a strength training session, but not muscle growth during 10 weeks of training
Although antioxidant supplements are generally believed to give health benefits, recent experiments show that they may adversely affect adaptations to endurance exercise. This study is the first toExpand

Resistance exercise with whey protein ingestion affects mTOR signaling pathway and myostatin in men.
Signaling pathways sense local and systemic signals and regulate muscle hypertrophy. The effects of whey protein ingestion on acute and long-term signaling responses of resistance exercise are notExpand

Effects of resistance exercise and protein ingestion on blood leukocytes and platelets in young and older men
This study investigated, in a multi-experiment design, the acute effects of milk protein ingestion, aging [50 young (~26 years) vs. 45 older (~61 years) men] and training state for the bloodExpand

VEGF-B-induced vascular growth leads to metabolic reprogramming and ischemia resistance in the heart
Angiogenic growth factors have recently been linked to tissue metabolism. We have used genetic gain‐ and loss‐of function models to elucidate the effects and mechanisms of action of vascularExpand

Molecular signaling in muscle is affected by the specificity of resistance exercise protocol
Mammalian target of rapamycin and mitogen‐activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways have been highlighted as important for muscle adaptations and thus, they may distinguish adaptations toExpand

Heterogeneity in resistance training-induced muscle strength and mass responses in men and women of different ages
Physical activity recommendations for public health include typically muscle-strengthening activities for a minimum of 2 days a week. The range of inter-individual variation in responses toExpand
