The effect of glycogen content on the activation of glycogen phosphorylase during adrenaline stimulation was investigated in soleus muscles from Wistar rats. Furthermore, adrenergic activation of glycogen phosphorylase in the slow-twitch oxidative soleus muscle was compared to the fast-twitch glycolytic epitrochlearis muscle. The glycogen content was 96.4(More)
Insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and incorporation of glucose into skeletal muscle glycogen contribute to physiological regulation of blood glucose concentration. In the present study, glucose handling and insulin signaling in isolated rat muscles with low glycogen (LG, 24-h fasting) and high glycogen (HG, refed for 24 h) content were compared with muscles(More)
Adrenaline and insulin are two of the most important hormones regulating a number of physiological processes in skeletal muscle. Insulin's effects are generally requiring PKB and adrenaline effects cAMP and PKA. Recent evidence indicates cAMP can regulate PKB in some cell types via Epac (Exchange protein directly activated by cAMP). This suggests possible(More)
This study examined how strenuous strength training affected the Na-K pump concentration in the knee extensor muscle of well-trained men and whether leg muscle strength and endurance was related to the pump concentration. First, the pump concentration, taken as 3H-ouabain binding, was measured in top alpine skiers since strength training is important to(More)
This study examines the effect of training intensity on the activity of enzymes in m. vastus lateralis. Elite junior cross-country skiers of both sexes trained 12-15 h weeks-1 for 5 months at either moderate (60-70% of VO2max, MIG) or high training intensity (80-90% of the VO2max, close to the lactate threshold; HIG). Muscle biopsies for enzyme analyses and(More)
After intense exercise muscle may give off hydrogen ions independently of lactate, perhaps by a mechanism involving sodium ions. To examine this possibility further five healthy young men cycled for 2 min to exhaustion. Blood was drawn from catheters in the femoral artery and vein during exercise and at 1-h intervals after exercise. The blood samples were(More)
During the last ten years there have been many studies of the physical and chemical properties of synovial fluid in relation to the production and prevention of joint lesions. These researches on the properties of normal human synovial fluid have nearly all been done on specimens obtained post morteFn, all other work on the normal having been done on fluid(More)
BACKGROUND Early retirement is an increasing problem in the construction industry. There is limited information about causes leading employees to leave working life early. We have compared construction workers present situation with their perception of future demands at work to avoid early retirement. METHODS All 87 employees in a medium-sized Norwegian(More)
To study how training affects the Na(+)-K+ pump concentration, 11 male and 9 female elite junior cross-country skiers trained 12-15 h/wk at 60-70% (moderate-intensity group) or 80-90% (high-intensity group) of their maximal O2 uptake for 5 mo. Muscle biopsies taken from the vastus lateralis muscle before and after the training period were analyzed for(More)
