The TJP1 gene is a very important gene that can be used as a molecular marker of physical performance, as it has been shown to participate in the absorption of nutrients at the level of intestinal villi (glucose, lipids, solutes, among others) both at paracellular level as in the basement membrane of these cells, which is very important at a nutritional level because a good intestinal absorption ensures a better nutritional status, which favors having better macro and micronutrient reserves, which is a determining factor for high performance
