Genetic Markers Associated with Power Athlete Status

mineral density and onset of osteoporosis. It might be speculated that this SNP would play a role in regulation of bone mass in humans. Thus, athletes carrying the specific form of the CALCR gene might benefit from having stronger bones that are better adjusted to withstand extreme forces and transfer loads over the normal loading conditions. This aspect is especially important for athletes performing strength sports such as powerlifting or weightlifting, for which tremendous weight loads are transferred throughout the whole training program and during competition

Can Supplementation of Vitamin D Improve Aerobic Capacity in Well Trained Youth Soccer Players?

Introduction The role of active vitamin D in calcium-phosphorus balance and its influence on the metabolism of bones was known as long as 100 years ago ( Wolf, 2004 ). Proliferative effect of this vitamin was identified only after the discovery of its nuclear receptor - VDR. It occurred that the receptor was present in numerous organs beyond the skeletal system, e.g. in the kidneys, the heart, the brain, the pancreas, the intestines as well as in muscles and skin ( Bikle, 2009 ). It was also confirmed that vitamin D played an important role in immunological

Does the MTHFR A1298C Polymorphism Modulate the Cardiorespiratory Response to Training?

genotype distribution of the MTHFR A1298C polymorphism in a group of Polish women; furthermore, we measured the changes of VO2max test variables, Wingate test variables and body composition measurements before and after the completion of a 12-week training program to verify whether there was an interaction between the genotype and training. Material and Methods Ethics Statement All the procedures followed in the study were approved by the Ethics Committee of the Regional Medical Chamber in Szczecin (Approval number 09/KB/IV/2011) and were conducted according

Eye movement abnormalities in essential tremor

differences in statistical power. Since age influences latency and velocity of saccades, the findings described above might have been caused by a higher number of elder subjects. Reflexive saccades latency depends mainly on cortical and subcortical areas of the saccadic system. The velocity of saccades is programmed by the brainstem saccades generator ( Leigh and Zee, 2006 ). We did not find impairment of the gap and overlap effect on reflexive saccades latency in ET. Our results of reflexive saccades latency in the gap paradigm remained in accordance with the results of
