Muscle-secreted Neurturin couples myofiber and motor neuron function.
Aerobic exercise promotes skeletal muscle vascularization, oxidative metabolism, fiber-type switching, and neuromuscular junction integrity. We show that muscle-secreted neurturin leads to a transcriptional reprogramming of muscle and motor neurons, inducing many of the adaptations to training.
