Skeletal muscle voluntary contractions (VC) and electrical stimulations (ES) were compared in eight healthy men. High-energy phosphates and myoglobin oxygenation were simultaneously monitored in the quadriceps by interleaved (1)H- and (31)P-NMR spectroscopy. For the VC protocol, subjects performed five or six bouts of 5 min with a workload increment of 10%(More)
Intracellular oxygen (O2) availability and the impact of ambient hypoxia have far reaching ramifications in terms of cell signalling and homeostasis; however, in vivo cellular oxygenation has been an elusive variable to assess. Within skeletal muscle the extent to which myoglobin desaturates (deoxy-Mb) and the extent of this desaturation in relation to O2(More)
Mechanisms generating BOLD contrast are complex and depend on parameters that are prone to large variations, in particular in skeletal muscle. Here, we simultaneously measured perfusion by ASL, and BOLD response in the calf muscle of 6 healthy volunteers during post-ischemic reactive hyperemia. We tested whether the relation between the two was altered for(More)
T(1)-based determination of perfusion was performed with the high temporal and spatial resolution that monitoring of exercise physiology requires. As no data were available on the validation of this approach in human muscles, T(1)-based NMRI of perfusion was compared to standard strain-gauge venous occlusion plethysmography performed simultaneously within a(More)
In human muscle the role of myoglobin (Mb) and its relationship to factors such as muscle perfusion and metabolic capacity are not well understood. We utilized nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to simultaneously study the Mb concentration ([Mb]), perfusion, and metabolic characteristics in calf muscles of athletes trained long term for either sprint or(More)
We sought to examine the potential role of oxidative stress on skeletal muscle function with advancing age. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) was employed to simultaneously assess muscle perfusion (arterial spin labeling) and energetics ((31)P NMR spectroscopy) in the lower leg of young (26 + or - 5 yr, n = 6) and older (70 + or - 5 yr, n = 6) healthy(More)
We previously identified a systemic metabolic defect associated with early weight loss in patients with Huntington's disease (HD), suggesting a lack of substrates for the Krebs cycle. Dietary anaplerotic therapy with triheptanoin is used in clinical trials to promote energy production in patients with peripheral and brain Krebs cycle deficit, as its(More)
BACKGROUND Aging is associated with a decline in exercise capacity that may be attributable to maladaptations in both skeletal muscle perfusion and metabolism; yet very little is known regarding the real-time, within-muscle interplay between these parameters during physical activity. Therefore, we utilized an unique nuclear magnetic resonance sequence to(More)
A direct coupling between capillary electrophoresis (CE) and ionspray (IS) mass spectrometry (MS) has been optimized to identify oligosaccharides obtained by enzymatic digestion of heparin. The separation electrolyte was made compatible with the requirements of a direct coupling using electrolytes made of ammonium acetate buffer, pH 3.5 and 9.2. The(More)
One hundred patients presenting with exercise intolerance or rhabdomyolysis episodes have been examined successively by 31P Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) of leg plantar flexor muscles with exercise test. In all cases a muscle biopsy was performed. At the end of investigations, diagnosis of a metabolic myopathy was made in 33 patients:(More)
