Know Your Genes: PPARA

The Peroxisome Proliferator- Activated Receptor (PPARA) gene is associated with the synthesis of Peroxisome Proliferator- Activated Receptor Alpha (PPARA), a protein associated with the activation of other genes and also in regulation of fatty acid oxidation during exercise. A lack of energy in the cells activate this gene like during endurance exercises or when fasting. […]

Know Your Genes: MMP3 - “The Risk of Injury Gene”

The Matrix Metalloproteinase 3 (MMP3) gene is associated with the synthesis of matrix metalloproteinase 3 (also called Stromelysin-1), an enzyme which is associated with the breakdown of extra cellular matrix during the normal physiological process. MMP3 is required to maintain Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) homeostasis and it contributes to the material integrity, as well as […]

Know Your Genes: MCT1 - “The Muscle Fatigue Gene”

The MCT1 gene is associated with the synthesis of MCT1, a molecule that transports lactic acid across the muscle cell membrane. Specific alleles of this gene are known to either increase or decrease the risk for fatigue and muscle injury after intense exercises. People with the T variant of the gene are associated with lower […]
