The purpose of this study was to use 31P-magnetic resonance spectroscopy to examine the relationships among muscle PCr hydrolysis, intracellular H+ concentration accumulation, and muscle performance during incremental exercise during the inspiration of gas mixtures containing different fractions of inspired O2 (FIO2). We hypothesized that lower FIO2 would(More)
The "slow component" of O2 uptake (VO2) kinetics during constant-load heavy-intensity exercise is traditionally thought to derive from a progressive recruitment of muscle fibers. In this study, which represents a reanalysis of data taken from a previous study by our group (Grassi B, Hogan MC, Greenhaff PL, Hamann JJ, Kelley KM, Aschenbach WG,(More)
In vivo oxidative capacity varies with muscle and training status in young adults energetics Antioxidants and aging: NMR-based evidence of improved skeletal muscle perfusion and Lower energy cost of skeletal muscle contractions in older humans skeletal muscle mitochondria play a role? Impairment of maximal aerobic power with moderate hypoxia in endurance(More)
The physiological flux of oxygen is extreme in exercising skeletal muscle. Hypoxia is thus a critical parameter in muscle function, influencing production of ATP, utilization of energy-producing substrates, and manufacture of exhaustion-inducing metabolites. Glycolysis is the central source of anaerobic energy in animals, and this metabolic pathway is(More)
This study investigated the effects of acute creatine kinase (CK) inhibition (CKi) on contractile performance, cytosolic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]c), and intracellular PO2 (PIO2) in Xenopus laevis isolated myocytes during a 2-min bout of isometric tetanic contractions (0.33-Hz frequency). Peak tension was similar between trials during the first contraction(More)
TNF-α is a proinflammatory cytokine that is involved in numerous pathological processes including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In the present study, we used a transgenic mouse model that overexpresses TNF-α in the lung (Tg(+)) to test the hypothesis that chronic exposure to TNF-α (as seen in COPD) reduces skeletal muscle force production(More)
Reperfusion following prolonged ischemia induces cellular damage in whole skeletal muscle models. Ischemic preconditioning attenuates the deleterious effects. We tested whether individual skeletal muscle fibers would be similarly affected by severe hypoxia and reoxygenation (H/R) in the absence of extracellular factors and whether cellular damage could be(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the bioenergetics and regulation of O2 uptake (VO2) and force production in contracting muscle when blood flow was moderately reduced during a steady-state contractile period. Canine gastrocnemius muscle (n = 5) was isolated, and 3-min stimulation periods of isometric, tetanic contractions were elicited sequentially(More)
Precise determination of the effect of muscle temperature (T(m)) on mitochondrial oxygen consumption kinetics has proven difficult in humans, in part due to the complexities in controlling for T(m)-related variations in blood flow, fiber recruitment, muscle metabolism, and contractile properties. To address this issue, intracellular Po(2) (P(i)(O(2))) was(More)
