Biochemistry for the Medical Sciences
This outstanding text, written in a clear, concise and easy-to-read style, provides students with an in-depth explanation of how each metabolic pathway is directly related to physiology,Expand
Activities of citrate synthase and NAD+-linked and NADP+-linked isocitrate dehydrogenase in muscle from vertebrates and invertebrates.
A comparison of the maximal activities of the enzymes with the maximal flux through the cycle suggests that, in insect flight muscle, NAD+-linked isocitrate dehydrogenase catalysed a non-equilibrium reaction and citrate synthease catalyses a near-equ equilibrium reaction. Expand
Regulation in metabolism
Effect of duration of exercise on excess postexercise O2 consumption.
It is concluded that EPOC increases linearly with exercise duration at a work intensity of 70% of maximal O2 consumption, and there was no difference in EPOC:EOC for different exercise durations. Expand
Influence of dietary supplementation with long-chain n−3 or n−6 polyunsaturated fatty acids on blood inflammatory cell populations and functions and on plasma soluble adhesion molecules in healthy
It is concluded that a moderate increase in consumption of long-chain n−6 or n−3 polyunsaturated fatty acids does not significantly affect inflammatory cell numbers or neutrophil and monocyte responses in humans and so would not be expected to cause immune impairment. Expand
The contents of adenine nucleotides, phosphagens and some glycolytic intermediates in resting muscles from vertebrates and invertebrates.
The lowest contents of ATP and the lowest ATP/AMP concentration ratios are observed in the molluscan muscles that have very low rates of energy expenditure during contraction, consistent with the proposed role of AMP and the adenylate kinase reaction in the regulation of glycolysis. Expand
Some aspects of the acute phase response after a marathon race, and the effects of glutamine supplementation
Abstract Strenuous exercise may be associated with immune suppression. However, the underlying mechanism is not known. A decrease in the plasma level of glutamine, which is utilised at a high rate byExpand
Influence of ingesting a solution of branched-chain amino acids on perceived exertion during exercise.
The performance in the colour task of Stroops Colour Word Test performed after exercise was improved when BCAAs had been ingested during exercise, compared with the results from the placebo trial. Expand
Activities of enzymes of fat and ketone-body metabolism and effects of starvation on blood concentrations of glucose and fat fuels in teleost and elasmobranch fish.
The results suggest that the heart and red muscles of the teleosts should be able to utilize the fat fuels triacylglycerol, fatty acids or acetoacetate, but not hydroxybutyrate, while the suggestion that ketone bodies are the most important fat fuels in elasmobranchs is supported. Expand
