ACTN3 knockout mice become marathon runners

Kudos to Razib at GNXP on beating me to this new paper in Human Molecular Genetics. I've also talked about many reports on this gene (see here, here for latest) and about another paper that found a similar effect for marathon mice (they can run for five hours without stopping), but linked to another gene: PPAR-delta (here, and here).
