Acute regulation of skeletal muscle protein metabolism by nutrients, exercise and hypoxia

  • Timothy Etheridge

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Muscle mass adapts in response to changing functional and metabolic demands of the organism and its maintenance is important for movement, health and survival. However, many questions remain regarding the acute response of muscle to feeding, exercise and altered environmental conditions. Thus, the aim of the present thesis was to investigate how muscle responds acutely to changes in some of these stimuli in humans.
