[Biochemistry] Metabolic Network - Research Group
This group studies the effects of aging and the activity or inactivity of antigravity muscles on the expressions and secretions of the bioactive substances that mediate the crosstalk (metabolic network) between skeletal muscles and adipose tissue. This allows us to learn more about the mechanism(s) underlying the roles of the bioactive substances in controlling the metabolic network and to identify new modulators. Furthermore, in order to establish the factors responsible for causing adipose tissue dysregulation and determining body fat distribution, we also study the effects of the aforementioned events on adipose-derived stem cells differentiation. Thus, we provide foundational knowledge that contributes to preventing obesity by proposing new exercise regimens or drug developments, thereby developing some strategies to prevent and control the metabolic syndrome.
