About this Seminar

Endurance exercise is a well-known mediator of mitochondrial biogenesis and oxidative capacity in skeletal muscle. The transcriptional co-activators PGC-1 family members have been widely thought to be required for mitochondrial biogenesis and respiration capacity in skeletal muscle. Dr. Rowe and his lab have generated a series of muscle specific PGC-1 knockout lines to systematically determine the contribution to mitochondrial biogenesis and oxidative capacity as well as exercise performance.
