There are two purposes for this project.
• One purpose of this project is to develop information about Latinos in the Maricopa County area who may be interested in participating in future research studies about health.
• A second purpose is that researchers at Mayo Clinic are developing a new research resource called a Biobank. A Biobank is a collection of blood samples and other information. Participants in the Biobank provide samples of blood, complete a health questionnaire, and allow access to medical records now and in the future. A Biobank is as a library for researchers; instead of having to look for volunteers for each new project, researchers can use samples from the Biobank as well as share information already collected.
This study is being done to better understand the relationship between inflammation and insulin resistance in your Adipose (fat) Tissue .
Obesity is associated with reduced adenosine triphosphate (ATP) turnover in skeletal muscle, a condition that can impair muscle metabolism. The proposed research will discover mechanisms responsible for decreased content in mitochondrial proteins as well as in protein β-F1-ATPase, which is directly responsible for ATP assembly, in the muscle of obese individuals. This research will further examine the effectiveness of interventions, such as increased plasma amino acid availability and exercise, to increase the rate of production of mitochondrial proteins as well as that of β-F1-ATPase in the muscle of obese individuals. The findings will help to develop appropriate interventions to improve muscle ATP turnover and metabolism in obese people.
