We previously reported that epinephrine stimulates leg free fatty acid (FFA) release in men but not in women. The present studies were conducted to determine whether the same is true during exercise. Six men and six women bicycled for 90 min at 45% of peak O(2) consumption, during which time systemic and leg FFA kinetics ([9, 10-(3)H]palmitate) were measured. The catecholamine and hormonal responses to exercise were not different in men and women. The baseline systemic and leg palmitate release was 94 +/- 15 vs. 114 +/- 5 micromol/min and 16 +/- 2 and 20 +/- 3 micromol/min, respectively, in men and women [P = nonsignificant (NS)]. Systemic and leg palmitate release increased (both P < 0.001) to 251 +/- 18 vs. 212 +/- 16 micromol/min and 73 +/- 19 vs. 80 +/- 12 micromol/min in men and women, respectively, during the last 30 min of exercise (P = NS, men vs. women). We conclude that the systemic and leg adipose tissue lipolytic response to exercise is not different in nonobese men and women.
