Mixed muscle protein synthesis and breakdown after resistance exercise in humans.
Mixed muscle protein fractional synthesis rate (FSR) and fractional breakdown rate (FBR) were examined after an isolated bout of either concentric or eccentric resistance exercise. Subjects wereExpand

Aging is associated with diminished accretion of muscle proteins after the ingestion of a small bolus of essential amino acids.
BACKGROUND Previous evidence suggests that aging in healthy persons does not result in decreased incorporation of muscle proteins after a bolus ingestion of 15 g essential amino acids (EAAs). Expand

Stimulation of net muscle protein synthesis by whey protein ingestion before and after exercise.
Timing of nutrient ingestion has been demonstrated to influence the anabolic response of muscle following exercise. Previously, we demonstrated that net amino acid uptake was greater when freeExpand

Atrophy and impaired muscle protein synthesis during prolonged inactivity and stress.
CONTEXT We recently demonstrated that 28-d bed rest in healthy volunteers results in a moderate loss of lean leg mass and strength. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to quantify changes inExpand

Effect of carbohydrate intake on net muscle protein synthesis during recovery from resistance exercise.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of ingestion of 100 g of carbohydrates on net muscle protein balance (protein synthesis minus protein breakdown) after resistance exercise. TwoExpand

Contributions of de novo synthesis of fatty acids to total VLDL-triglyceride secretion during prolonged hyperglycemia/hyperinsulinemia in normal man.
Triglycerides (TG) are synthesized in the liver principally from two sources of fatty acids (FA): FA synthesized de novo in the liver and preformed FA. We have measured the rate of secretion of deExpand

Intramuscular and liver triglycerides are increased in the elderly.
Magnetic resonance spectroscopy studies have shown that intramyocellular lipids (IMCL) and liver fat (LFAT) levels vary with insulin sensitivity and obesity, which are common in the elderly. Thus,Expand

Intranasal Dexmedetomidine Premedication is Comparable With Midazolam in Burn Children Undergoing Reconstructive Surgery
Preoperative anxiety and emergence delirium in children continue to be common even with midazolam premedication. Midazolam is unpleasant tasting even with a flavored vehicle and as a result, patientExpand

Stimulation of Muscle Protein Synthesis by Long‐Term Insulin Infusion in Severely Burned Patients
ObjectiveTo determine if long-term (7 days) infusion of insulin can ameliorate altered protein kinetics in skeletal muscle of severely burned patients and to investigate the hypothesis that changesExpand

Whey protein ingestion in elderly persons results in greater muscle protein accrual than ingestion of its constituent essential amino acid content.
It is recognized that both whey protein (WY) and essential amino acids (EAA) are stimuli for muscle protein anabolism. The aim of the present study was to determine if the effects of WY ingestion onExpand
