Early Inflammatory And Myogenic Responses To Resistance Exercise In The Elderly, Jessica L. Mathers, Michelle M. Farnfield, Andrew P. Garnham, Marissa K. Caldow, David Cameron-Smith, Jonathan M. Peake 2017 Australian Catholic University

Early Inflammatory And Myogenic Responses To Resistance Exercise In The Elderly, Jessica L. Mathers, Michelle M. Farnfield, Andrew P. Garnham, Marissa K. Caldow, David Cameron-Smith, Jonathan M. Peake

David A. Cameron

Introduction and Methods: This study compared changes in myokine and myogenic genes following resistance exercise (3 sets of 12 repetitions of maximal unilateral knee extension) in 20 elderly men (67.8 ± 1.0 years) and 15 elderly women (67.2 ± 1.5 years). Results: Monocyte chemotactic protein (MCP)-1, macrophage inhibitory protein (MIP)-1β, interleukin (IL)-6 and MyoD mRNA increased significantly (P < 0.05), whereas myogenin and myostatin mRNA decreased significantly after exercise in both groups. Macrophage-1 (Mac-1) and MCP-3 mRNA did not change significantly after exercise in either group. MIP-1β, Mac-1 and myostatin mRNA were significantly higher before and after exercise in men compared with women. In contrast, MCP-3 and myogenin mRNA were significantly higher before and after exercise in the women compared with the men. Conclusions: In elderly individuals, gender influences the mRNA expression of certain myokines and growth factors, both at rest and after resistance exercise. These differences may influence muscle regeneration following muscle injury.


Impact Of Resistance Exercise Training On Interleukin-6 And Jak/Stat In Young Men, Marissa K. Trenerry, Paul A. Della Gatta, Amy E. Larsen, Andrew P. Garnham, David Cameron-Smith 2017 Australian Catholic University

Impact Of Resistance Exercise Training On Interleukin-6 And Jak/Stat In Young Men, Marissa K. Trenerry, Paul A. Della Gatta, Amy E. Larsen, Andrew P. Garnham, David Cameron-Smith

David A. Cameron

The JAK/STAT signaling pathway is essential for myogenic regeneration and is regulated by a diverse range of ligands, including interleukin-6 ( IL-6 ) and platelet-derived growth factor-BB ( PDGF-BB ). Our aim was to evaluate the responsiveness of IL-6 and PDGF-BB to intense exercise, along with STAT3 activation, before and after 12 weeks of resistance training. In young men, IL-6 and PDGF-BB protein concentrations were quantified in biopsied muscle and increased at 3 h post-exercise ( 17.5-fold and 3-fold, respectively ). The response was unaltered by 12 weeks of training. Similarly, STAT3 phosphorylation was elevated post-exercise ( 12.5-fold ), irrespective of training status, as was ...

Body Size Regulation Via Bmp Signaling In Caenorhabditis Elegans, Uday Madaan 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Body Size Regulation Via Bmp Signaling In Caenorhabditis Elegans, Uday Madaan

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The body size of an organism can be a crucial determinant of access to nutrition, reproductive success and overall survival in the wild. However, how body size of an individual is determined is incompletely understood. Body size is a complex trait determined by multiple pathways and genes, making it difficult to understand the role of individual genes and pathways in determining overall size. In Caenorhabditis elegans, a homolog of Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMP) is a major regulator of body size; functional loss of DBL-1 leads to a small body size. Due to a drastic change in body size in dbl-1 ...


Perceptions Of Sport Science Students On The Potential Applications And Limitations Of Blended Learning In Their Education: A Qualitative Study, Justin Keogh, Lisa Gowthorp, Michelle McLean 2017 Bond University

Perceptions Of Sport Science Students On The Potential Applications And Limitations Of Blended Learning In Their Education: A Qualitative Study, Justin Keogh, Lisa Gowthorp, Michelle Mclean

Justin Keogh

This study sought to gain insight into blended learning-naive sports science students' understanding and perceptions of the potential benefits and limitations of blended (hybrid) learning, which has been defined as the thoughtful integration of face-to-face and online instructional approaches. Five focus groups, each comprising 3-4 students from either the undergraduate or postgraduate sports science programmes were conducted. The focus groups were facilitated by a researcher who was not involved in sports science. Audio recordings of the focus groups were transcribed verbatim. NVivo software was used to code the transcripts to identify the themes and subthemes. Students generally had little initial ...
