Exercise training improves skeletal muscle function, notably through tissue regeneration by muscle stem cells. Here, we hypothesized that exercise training reprograms the epigenome of muscle cell, which could account for better muscle function. Genome-wide DNA methylation of myotube cultures established from middle-aged obese men before and after endurance exercise training identified a differentially methylated region […]

Macrophages are key immune cells in mediating both the acute inflammatory phase and the repair phase after tissue damage. Macrophages switch from pro-inflammatory to anti-inflammatory cells that sustain tissue repair and return to homeostasis. We show that the metabolic sensor, AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is essential for glucocorticoid induction of an anti-inflammatory macrophage phenotype. While […]
