Mitochondrial (mt) DNA content, citrate synthase activity, transcript levels of some nuclear- and mitochondrial-coded genes (cytochrome c oxidase subunit IV [COX-IV], 16S rRNA, COX-I) and of some factors involved in the mitochondrial biogenesis signaling pathway (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma [PPARgamma] coactivator-1alpha [PGC-1alpha], mitochondrial transcription factor A mitochondrial [TFAM], mitochondrial transcription factor 2B [TFB2]), as well as the protein content of PGC-1alpha were determined.

The samples came from 3 different districts of Libreville (Akebe Poteau, Alibandeng, Camp des Boys) and were tested by nested PCR targeting the citrate synthase (gltA) gene (7).
The fluoroacetyl CoA then combines with the enzyme citrate synthase to produce fluorocitrate.
Analysis of citrate synthase activity The citrate synthase activity was determined based on the oxidative capacity, which is an index of the effect of endurance training.
The capacity of classic markers for mitochondrial density, ie, the capacity of citrate synthase (CS) and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), as well the capacity of cytochrome c oxidase (COX) and beta-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (HAD), was determined in homogenized muscle biopsy samples obtained from the vastus lateralis muscle of nonexercising healthy young (age 20 [+ or -] 2 yr) subjects (31 women, 7 men).
Citrate synthase activity To evaluate the effectiveness of the training program, citrate synthase activity was measured from tissue samples from the biceps femoris as described by Srere (1969).
The audience was also treated to a fascinating presentation of the research of Harry Duckworth, FCIC, entitled 'An Enzyme in the Family; Growing Up Scientifically with Citrate Synthase.
In individuals with high citrate synthase activity (patients 673 and 7616), suggestive of a compensatory increase in mitochondrial metabolism, the reduction of SDH activity was observable histochemically.
