Abstract

Elevated global DNA methylation (GDM) has been linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease. We recently reported an association between the epigenomic measure of GDM and maximal aerobic capacity as well as body composition in females. Throughout the course of this testing one question that arose was whether GDM is stable from week to week and month to month, and whether it is affected by acute exercise.
