CONTEXT Although GH promotes growth and protein anabolism, which are ATP-dependent processes, the GH effect on mitochondrial regulation remains to be determined. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine the acute effect of GH on mitochondrial oxidative capacity in skeletal muscle of healthy subjects. DESIGN AND SETTING The study was a randomized crossover design at an academic medical center. PARTICIPANTS Nine healthy men and women completed the study. INTERVENTION GH (150 microg/h) or… CONTINUE READING
