GENOTYPE REPORT ANALYSIS SUPPORT GUIDE POWER & ENDURANCE GENES

 

Analysis of gene results
AGT
Long name:
Angiotensinogen
Associated with:
Vasoconstriction and blood pressure control
Sports Connection:
Power
CC (Thr/Thr) TC (Met/Thr) TT (Met/Met)
Associated with power, strength and speed sports. Carriers may achieve a higher than average physical improvement in strength, speed and power with training programmes. Carriers can have a greater susceptibility to high blood pressure and left ventricular hypertrophy. Monitor heart rate and adapt length of strenuous activity. Effect increased in carriers of ACE D allele A more moderate form of CC: a power-based combination and susceptibility to high blood pressure and left ventricular hypertrophy, but not as much as CC. Not associated with power or endurance. Fewer problems with blood pressure, in fact regular exercise has been reported to have long term positive effects on age-related blood pressure
ACE
Long name:
Angiotensin Converting Enzyme
Associated with:
Controlling blood pressure and the fluid (water)/sodium balance in blood. This is the most researched gene in relation to sporting performance
Sports Connection:
Power and Endurance (depending on gene configuration).
II ID DD
Endurance sports and high repetition weight training programmes recommended. Carriers have an increased volume of slow twitch muscle fibres and have greater aerobic efficiency and VO2max. Mixture of power and endurance based training recommended. Power based training recommended. Good muscle growth expected from weight training and strength sports. Good muscle recovery. Ensure blood pressure is monitored during high intensity exercise. Effect increased in conjunction with AGT C-allele
VEGF
Long name:
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor
Associated with:
New blood vessel growth to support exercise activities. Regular exercise and progressive training programmes can create a 4-fold increase in levels of VEGF
Sports Connection:
Endurance
CC GC GG
Likely to respond well to endurance training. C-allele carriers produce a greater amount of VEGF. Good muscle efficiency and VO2max, and can potentially adjust well to altitude training. Moderate form of CC: an endurance-based combination with good muscular efficiency, but not as much as CC. Contributes to a lower response to endurance training (overall response of an individual will depend on the combined effects of several genes).
