Enhanced exercise and regenerative capacity in a mouse model that violates size constraints of oxidative muscle fibres (2016)
Journal Article

A central tenet of skeletal muscle biology is the existence of an inverse relationship between the oxidative fibre capacity and its size. However, robustness of this relationship is unknown. We show that superimposition of Estrogen-related receptor g... Read More about Enhanced exercise and regenerative capacity in a mouse model that violates size constraints of oxidative muscle fibres.
