Abstract

The molecule Nicotinamide Adenine Nucleotide (NAD+) is extremely important to control the energy homeostasis and as consequence of metabolic homeostasis. The increase in NAD+ levels is directly related to increase activity of Sirtuins (SIRTs), and these in turn are proteins known to trigger the process of Mitocondrial Unfolded Protein Response (UPRmt) and promote adaptation of skeletal muscles. In this line, studies show that supplementation with the NAD+ precursor , Nicotinamide Riboside (NR), it able to promoting improvement in the oxidative capacity of the mitochondria and mitochondrial biogenesis by triggering the UPRmt process. Studies also demonstrate that physcical training is able to promote adjustments in the organism as mitochondrial biogenesis, increase VO2max, changes in skeletal muscle fiber type, which when combined are responsible for the inscrease in oxidative metabolism and thereby increasing aerobic performance. Although it known about the effects of both physical training, as NR supplementation on improvement of mucle cells oxidative profile, the effects of the combination of physical training and NR supplementation have not been explored yet. In this way, the current Project aims to evaluate the combination of NR supplementation and physical training effects on the aerobic performance and triggering of UPRmt in skeletal muscle of mice. This project development will significantly contribute to understand the effects of aerobic training and NR supplementation in unleashing the UPRmt process and it is role on the skeletal muscle adaptations and aerobic performance.
