Effects of diet and exercise on markers of total ribosome content and function. The effects of the intervention on skeletal muscle total RNA levels (i.e., ribosome content) (a), myofibrillar protein levels (b), muscle soluble protein levels (c), myofibrillar (MF): total RNA ratio as a surrogate of ribosome function (d) and muscle soluble protein: total RNA ratio as an additional surrogate of ribosome function (e). All data are presented as mean ± SD (n = 10–16 rats per group), group mean values are presented within each bar, 95% confidence intervals are presented in parentheses within each bar, and bars with different superscript letters indicate between-treatment differences (p < 0.05). Due to limited tissue, only a subset of animals were assayed for myofibrillar protein (O-CON n = 7, O-WD/SED n = 14, O-WD/EX n = 8). O-CON OLETF rats consuming a control diet during weeks 20–32 and were not treadmill-trained, O-WD/SED OLETF rats consuming a Western diet during weeks 20–32 and were not treadmill-trained, O-WD/EX OLETF rats consuming a Western diet during weeks 20–32 and were treadmill-trained 5 days/week
