HAMILTON, M.T., D.G. HAMILTON, and T.W. ZDERIC. Exercise physiology versus inactivity physiology: An essential concept for understanding lipoprotein lipase regulation. Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 32, No. 4, pp. 161–166, 2004. Some health-related proteins such as lipoprotein lipase may be regulated by qualitatively different processes over the physical activity continuum, sometimes with very high sensitivity to inactivity. The most powerful process known to regulate lipoprotein lipase protein and activity in muscle capillaries may be initiated by inhibitory signals during physical inactivity, independent of changes in lipoprotein lipase messenger RNA.
