Age-related alterations in the sarcolemmal environment are attenuated by lifelong caloric restriction and voluntary exercise.

Abstract

Age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and function, referred to as sarcopenia, is mitigated by lifelong calorie restriction as well as exercise. In aged skeletal muscle fibers there is compromised integrity of the cell membrane that may contribute to sarcopenia. The purpose of this study was to determine if lifelong mild (8%) caloric restriction (CR) and… (More)
