Exercising mitochondrial biogenesis in adipose tissue

According to a new research published in scientific journal Diabetes reveals that the exercising and training helps to increase the mitochondrial biogenesis, mitochondrial DNA content. It helps to control the glucose by utilizing the subcutaneous adipose tissue. The study was conducted on mice. The researchers further found that the swim training concluded in vivo effects the helps to increases in mitochondrial biogenesis, mtDNA but not eNOS. The team led by Elisabetta Trevellin, Ph.D., of the University of Padua in Italy, investigated the effects of the exercise specifically on mitochondria and the glucose metabolism in adipose tissue. The authors explain, “These results point to the crucial role of the eNOS-derived nitric oxide in the metabolic adaptation of subcutaneous adipose tissue to exercise training.” This study gives a new hope that simple exercising could be helpful in many ways. The medical practitioners should suggest their diabetic patients to maintain an exercising routine.
