beta-Alanine supplementation augments muscle carnosine content and attenuates fatigue during repeated isokinetic contraction bouts in trained sprinters.
Carnosine (beta-alanyl-l-histidine) is present in high concentrations in human skeletal muscle. The ingestion of beta-alanine, the rate-limiting precursor of carnosine, has been shown to elevate theExpand

Simulation and experimental verification of the diffusion in an anisotropic fiber phantom.
Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging enables the visualization of fibrous tissues such as brain white matter. The validation of this non-invasive technique requires phantoms with aExpand

Absolute quantification of carnosine in human calf muscle by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Carnosine has been shown to be present in the skeletal muscle and in the brain of a variety of animals and humans. Despite the various physiological functions assigned to this metabolite, its exactExpand

Equipotential projection-based magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography and experimental realization.
In this study, a direct, fast image reconstruction algorithm, based on the fact that equipotential lines are perpendicular to current lines in a volume conductor, is proposed for magnetic resonanceExpand

A label-free potentiometric sensor principle for the detection of antibody-antigen interactions.
We report here on a new potentiometric biosensing principle for the detection of antibody-antigen interactions at the sensing membrane surface without the need to add a label or a reporter ion to theExpand

Quantitative proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy without water suppression
The suppression of the abundant water signal has been traditionally employed to decrease the dynamic range of the NMR signal in proton MRS (1H MRS) in vivo. When using this approach, if the intent isExpand
