ACE I/D and ACTN3 R/X polymorphisms and muscle function and muscularity of older Caucasian men

Abstract

The progressive decline in strength and power with ageing leads to compromised mobility and an increased risk of falls. Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) I/D and alpha actinin 3 (ACTN3) R/X polymorphisms have been suggested to influence variations in skeletal muscle function and body composition.
