This study explores the associations between polymorphisms in two candidate genes—myostatin gene (MSTN or GDF8) and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene—with interindividual differences in human muscle mass and strength responses to strength training. The MSTN AluI A55T (exon 1), BanII K153R, TaqI E164 K and BstNI P198A (all in exon 2) markers and the ACE insertion (I)/deletion (D) polymorphism were typed in 57 males [22.4 (3.7) years] who participated in a 10-week, high-resistance training… CONTINUE READING
