Study shows how muscles regulate their oxygen consumption
A new study by Randall Johnson published in Cell Metabolism shows that an enzyme called FIH determines how muscles consume oxygen. Without the enzyme, the need for oxygen increases during physical exercise. The finding is of potential significance to elite athletes, who have been found to have higher levels of FIH in their muscles than others.
