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, ...
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 ...
