Estrogen-related receptor gamma (ERRgamma) regulates the perinatal switch to oxidative metabolism in the myocardium. We wanted to understand the significance of induction of ERRgamma expression in skeletal muscle by exercise. Muscle-specific VP16ERRgamma transgenic mice demonstrated an increase in exercise capacity, mitochondrial enzyme activity, and(More)
Growing evidence supports the theory that mitochondrial dysfunction is an underlying cause of intramyocellular lipid (IMCL) accumulation and insulin resistance. Here, we hypothesized that high dietary fat (HF) intake could trigger changes in mitochondrial activity such that fatty acid oxidation is impaired in muscle and contributes to an elevation in(More)
