HAGBERG, J.M., G.E. MOORE, and R.E. FERRELL. Specific genetic markers of endurance performance and o2max. Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 29, No. 1, pp 15–19, 2001. Recent advances have revolutionized genetic studies of quantitative traits. Mitochondrial DNA and creatine kinase variations may influence JOURNAL/essrv/04.02/00003677-200101000-00004/ENTITY_OV0312/v/2017-07-29T043430Z/r/image-pngo2max. Other data strongly suggest that angiotensin-converting enzyme genotype affects JOURNAL/essrv/04.02/00003677-200101000-00004/ENTITY_OV0312/v/2017-07-29T043430Z/r/image-pngo2max and endurance performance capacity, but the mechanisms are unclear. A recent genome-wide scan study also has provided candidate loci requiring further study.
