Exercise and gene expression


Recommended Posts

Yes it does. Exercise will cause an increase/decease in the expression of certain genes of specific cells.


When you exercise various hormones are released within your body such as epinephrine. These hormones bind to receptors on a cell's surface causing signal transduction. This results in the expression of a gene(s).


However, it far more complex than I explained.
