Leucine has a major anabolic impact on muscle protein synthesis in young as in old animals. However, myosin heavy chain (MHC), sarcoplasmic and mitochondrial proteins may differently respond to anabolic factors, especially during aging. To test this hypothesis, fractional synthesis rates (FSR) of the three muscle protein fractions were measured using a(More)
This experiment was undertaken to examine leucine responsiveness of muscle protein synthesis during dexamethasone treatment and the subsequent recovery in young (4-5 weeks), adult (10-11 months) and old rats (21-22 months). Rats received dexamethasone in their drinking water. The dose and length of the treatment was adapted in order to generate the same(More)
