Recent studies have shown that reduced mitochondrial content and function in skeletal muscle are common features of type 2 diabetes. Here, we review the molecular mechanisms involved in the regulation of mitochondrial genes in skeletal muscle, focusing on a key transcriptional network consisting of ERRα and PGC-1α. We describe how knowledge of this transcriptional circuit can be translated to the development of novel therapies for type 2 diabetes.
