Postexercise Myogenic Gene Expression: Are Human Findings Lost During Translation?

Muscle progenitor cell (MPC) activity is exercise responsive. Post resistance-exercise alterations in myogenic messenger RNAs (mRNAs) found by us and others may initiate these events. However, these mRNA data in the absence of microscopic MPC activity data have limited this interpretation. Alternatively, with our acute exercise data as our basis, we propose that these genes may control other hypertrophic processes in postmitotic fibers.
