|Davis MS, Barrett MR (2021) Effect of conditioning and physiology hyperthermia on canine skeletal muscle mitochondrial oxygen consumption. J Appl Physiol. 130:1317-1325|
Abstract: Exercise often causes skeletal muscle hyperthermia, likely resulting in decreased efficiency of mitochondrial respiration. We hypothesized that athletic conditioning would improve mitochondrial tolerance to hyperthermia. Skeletal muscle biopsies were obtained from 6 Alaskan sled dogs under light general anesthesia before and after a full season of conditioning and racing, and respiration of permeabilized muscle fibers was measured at 38, 40, 42, and 44C. There was no effect of temperature on phosphorylating respiration, and athletic conditioning increased maximal phosphorylating respiration by 19%. Leak respiration increased and calculated efficiency of oxidative phosphorylation decreased with increasing incubation temperature, and athletic conditioning resulted in higher leak respiration and lower calculated oxidative phosphorylation efficiency at all temperatures. Conditioning increased skeletal muscle expression of putative mitochondrial leak pathways adenine nucleotide transporter 1 and uncoupling protein 3, both of which were correlated with the magnitude of leak respiration. We conclude that athletic conditioning in elite canine endurance athletes results in increased capacity for mitochondrial proton leak that potentially reduces maximal mitochondrial membrane potential during periods of high oxidative phosphorylation. This effect may provide a mechanistic explanation for previously-reported decreases in exercise-induced muscle damage in well-conditioned subjects.
