Association between adipose tissue characteristics and metabolic flexibility in humans: A systematic review
(Frontiers Media, 2021-12-03)
Adipose tissue total amount, distribution, and phenotype influence metabolic health. This may be partially mediated by the metabolic effects that these adipose tissue characteristics exert on the nearby and distant ...
Similar metabolic health in overweight/obese individuals with contrasting metabolic flexibility to an oral glucose tolerance test
(Frontiers Media, 2021-11-16)
Background: Low metabolic flexibility (MetF) may be an underlying factor for metabolic health impairment. Individuals with low MetF are thus expected to have worse metabolic health than subjects with high MetF. Therefore, ...
Effect of supervised resistance training on arm volume, quality of life and physical perfomance among women at high risk for breast cancer-related Lymphedema: A study protocol for a randomized controlled Trial (STRONG-B)
(Frontiers Media, 2022-03)
Objectives: To determine the preventive effects of supervised resistance training on arms volume, quality of life, physical performance, and handgrip strength in Chilean women at high risk for breast cancer-related ...
Work/household, transport, and leisure domains account for the sex gap in physical activity in Chile
(Frontiers in Public Health, 2022)
Exploring the sequential accumulation of metabolic syndrome components in adults
(Scientific Reports, 2022)
Elevated Risk of Overweight/Obesity-Related Markers and Low Muscular Fitness in Children Attending Public Schools in Chile
(International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2022)
In Chile, children of low socioeconomic status usually attend public schools and have few opportunities to engage in healthy behaviors. This may increase their risk of overweight/obesity and low muscular fitness. Therefore, ...
Low abundance of Mfn2 protein correlates with reduced mitochondria-SR juxtaposition and mitochondrial cristae density in human men skeletal muscle: Examining organelle measurements from TEM images
(Wiley Open Access, 2021-04-04)
The role of mitofusin 2 (Mfn2) in the regulation of skeletal muscle (SM) mitochondria-sarcoplasmic (SR) juxtaposition, mitochondrial morphology, mitochondrial cristae density (MCD), and SM quality has not been studied in ...
Severe COVID-19 correlates with lower mitochondrial cristae density in PBMCs and greater sitting time in humans
An interaction between mitochondrial dynamics, physical activity levels, andCOVID-19 severity has been previously hypothesized. However, this has notbeen tested. We aimed to compare mitochondrial morphology and cristae ...
Predictive equations for energy expenditure in adult humans: From resting to free-living conditions
Humans acquire energy from the environment for survival. A central question for nutritional sciences is how much energy is required to sustain cellular work while maintaining an adequate body mass. Because human energy ...
