Going the Extra Mile

Molecular manipulations turn ordinary mice into athletic stars

R. John Davenport

Abstract: It sounds like the dream of every potato-chip-devouring armchair athlete who aspires to Olympic glory: exceptional endurance without the tiresome training. Two new studies reveal molecular alterations that allow rodents to outpace their normal kin. The findings might eventually lead to drugs that fight obesity and diabetes without requiring exercise.
