The purpose of this study was to determine the resistance loads which elicit maximal values of power output (PO) during performance of the Wingate test (WT). Nineteen male subjects (mean age, 25.1 yrs; mean VO2 max, 3.52 l/min) performed multiple WTs in a random order at resistances ranging from 3.23 to 6.76 joules/pedal rev/kg BW. Tests were carried out on(More)
BACKGROUND Chemical protective clothing (CPC) is required to perform certain occupations and is known to inhibit physical performance. Few data are available that quantify the physiological response of men and women during task performance while wearing CPC. HYPOTHESIS The mobility of a task will have a significant effect on the change in energy cost. The(More)
While chemical protective (CP) clothing is known to adversely affect physical performance, few data exist regarding the physiological response of wearing US military CP clothing during incremental, dynamic exercise. To quantify the effects of CP clothing on energy cost and to test the hypothesis that the mask contributes little to this effect, oxygen uptake(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the differences in anaerobic power (AnP) between men and women and the contribution of anthropometric variables in accounting for these differences. There were 18 female and 19 male subjects who performed the 30-s Wingate test where power outputs in watts are expressed as mean power (MP, the mean for 30 s) and peak(More)
Encoded combinatorial organic synthesis has recently emerged as a powerful tool for the discovery of biologically active compounds from complex chemical libraries. This report describes a new encoding methodology that uses chemically robust secondary amines as tags. These amines are incorporated into an N-[(dialkylcarbamoyl)methyl]glycine-coding oligomer(More)
The application of a new encoding technology for drug discovery is described. A combinatorial library of mercaptoacyl pyrrolidines has been prepared on a beaded polymeric support. Each polymer bead carries one library constituent in association with an oligomeric "tag," the structure of which is a record of the specific reagents from which that library(More)
A series of balanol analogs in which the perhydroazepine ring and the p-hydroxybenzamide moiety were combined into an acyclic linked unit have been prepared and evaluated for their inhibitory properties against the serine/threonine kinase PKC. Several low-micromolar to low-nanomolar inhibitors of the alpha, beta I, beta II, gamma, delta, epsilon and eta PKC(More)
A series of analogues of the protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitory natural product balanol which bear modified benzophenone subunits are described. The analogues were designed with the goal of uncovering structure-activity features that could be used in the development of PKC inhibitors with a reduced polar character compared to balanol itself. The results of(More)
