Short-term (4 days), but not acute, treatment with ginseng saponin (GS, 10 and 20 mg/kg/day) significantly prolonged the aerobic endurance of non-trained rats exercising at approximately 70% VO2max. Compared to the saline controls, GS treatment significantly increased the plasma free fatty acid (FFA) level and maintained plasma glucose level during ...

To test the hypothesis that an elevation in circulating epinephrine increases intramuscular glycogen utilization, six endurance-trained men performed two 40-min cycling trials at 71 +/- 2% of peak oxygen uptake in 20-22 degrees C conditions. On the first occasion, subjects were infused with saline throughout exercise (Con). One week later, ...

In comparison to cardiac tissue, relatively few data are available regarding the concentrations of tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediates (TCAI) and the potential influence of TCAI pool size on the regulation of cycle flux in mammalian skeletal muscle. However, recent human exercise studies have confirmed the fundamental observation made in electrically-stimulated ...

Euglycemia was maintained in 13 subjects with low muscle glycogen [low glycogen, euglycemic (LGE), n = 8; low glycogen, euglycemic, hyperinsulinemic (LGEI), n = 5] and 6 subjects with normal muscle glycogen (NGE), whereas hyperglycemia was maintained in 8 low muscle glycogen subjects (LGH). All subjects cycled for 145 min ...

The blood lactate (La) - heart rate (HR) relationship assessed during a graded maximal exercise test (GXT) is often used to provide training guidelines to athletes. Glycogen depletion is a condition that is known to influence the La response during a GXT and therefore can bias the interpretation of La ...
Wagenmakers A J - - 1998
Six amino acids are metabolized in resting muscle. They are leucine, isoleucine, valine, asparagine, aspartate, and glutamate. These amino acids provide the amino groups and probably the ammonia required for synthesis of glutamine and alanine, which are released in excessive amounts in the postabsorptive state and during ingestion of a ...
Green H J - - 1997
To examine the effects of a dilutional mediated decrease in arterial O2 content on muscle metabolic and substrate behaviour during exercise, plasma volume was acutely expanded by either 14% (LOW) or 21% (HIGH) using a 6% dextran solution dissolved in saline (Macrodex) and compared with a control (CON) condition. The ...

1. The 'crossover' concept is a model of substrate supply during exercise which makes the following predictions. 2. Lipid is the major fuel (approximately 60%) for non-contracting skeletal muscle and the body at rest. 3. Energy flux, as determined by exercise intensity, is the major factor in determining the balance ...

1. Since ancient times, athletes have consumed proteins because of the belief they were the necessary substrate for optimal performance. Even though this concept was proven to be incorrect before the beginning of the 19th century, the practice continued until several decades ago. 2. By 1939, careful metabolic investigations on ...

The present study examined the role of lactate and glucose as substrates for glyconeogenesis in muscle in recovery from high-intensity exercise in humans. Seven subjects performed approximately 100 min of intense intermittent one-legged knee extensor exercise on two occasions: with [high lactate (HL)] and without [control (C)] intense arm exercise ...
Hawley J A - - 1997
This review suggests that there is little or no effect of elevating pre-exercise muscle glycogen contents above normal resting values on a single exhaustive bout of high-intensity exercise lasting less than 5 minutes. Nor is there any benefit of increasing starting muscle glycogen content on moderate-intensity running or cycling lasting ...

Exercise intolerance associated with myalgias, muscle cramps or myoglobinuria may be associated with a dystrophinopathy. A search for abnormal dystrophin expression (using immunohistochemistry, immunoblot and DNA analysis) was carried out in a series of 15 patients. They were selected because they presented exercise intolerance, negative biochemical tests (lipid, glycogen and ...

Maughan R J - - 1997
The crucial role of muscle glycogen as a fuel during prolonged exercise is well established, and the effects of acute changes in dietary carbohydrate intake on muscle glycogen content and on endurance capacity are equally well known. More recently, it has been recognized that diet can also affect the performance ...

While the presence of palatable (20 mmol l-1) concentrations of NaCl in drinks containing carbohydrate consumed during intense exercise would not be expected to promote absorption or significantly help maintain fluid balance, there is no doubt that athletes should ingest some from of carbohydrate (other than fructose) during moderate-intensity exercise ...

1. The hypothesis that cellular hydration state modulates muscle glycogen synthesis was tested by measuring the incorporation of [14C]glucose into glycogen (glycogen synthesis) in primary rat myotubes after experimentally induced volume changes. 2. Glycogen synthesis in myotubes increased (by 75%, P < 0.01) after swelling induced by 60 min exposure ...
Weinbrenner C - - 1996
Depletion of glycogen has been proposed as the mechanism of protection from ischemic preconditioning. The hypothesis was tested by seeing whether pharmacological manipulation of preconditioning causes parallel changes in cardiac glycogen content. Five groups of isolated rabbit hearts were studied. Group 1 experienced 30 min of ischemia only. Group 2 ...
