Day-night rhythm disturbance

Day-night rhythm disturbance
Published by our group in Molecular Metabolism was the article titled: "Day-night rhythm of skeletal muscle metabolism is disturbed in older, metabolically compromised individuals". It shows that mitochondrial oxidative capacity does not show a day-night rhythm in older, overweight participants with impaired glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. The full article can be found here: https://...

New article by Jan-Frieder Harmsen on circadian misalignment and skeletal muscle lipidome

New article by Jan-Frieder Harmsen on circadian misalignment and skeletal muscle lipidome
Posted on
In collaboration with our colleagues in at University of Amsterdam, Jan-Frieder Harmsen has published a new article in  the FASEB Journal and demonstrated that controlled shortterm circadian misalignment distributed the skeletal muscle lipidome, whereas lipid droplet morphology remained unalterd. The full manuscript with the title "Circadian misalignment disturbs the skeletal muscle lipidome in...
