Physiology and pathophysiology of carnosine.
Carnosine (β-alanyl-l-histidine) was discovered in 1900 as an abundant non-protein nitrogen-containing compound of meat. The dipeptide is not only found in skeletal muscle, but also in otherExpand

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

Mouth rinse but not ingestion of a carbohydrate solution improves 1‐h cycle time trial performance
The aim of the present study was to further explore the influence of ingestion and mouth rinse with a carbohydrate‐electrolyte solution (CES) on the performance during a ∼1 h high‐intensity timeExpand

A Simple Exoskeleton That Assists Plantarflexion Can Reduce the Metabolic Cost of Human Walking
Background Even though walking can be sustained for great distances, considerable energy is required for plantarflexion around the instant of opposite leg heel contact. Different groups attempted toExpand

Important role of muscle carnosine in rowing performance.
The role of the presence of carnosine (β-alanyl-L-histidine) in millimolar concentrations in human skeletal muscle is poorly understood. Chronic oral β-alanine supplementation is shown to elevateExpand

Carnosine loading and washout in human skeletal muscles.
Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) is present in high concentrations in human skeletal muscles. The oral ingestion of beta-alanine, the rate-limiting precursor in carnosine synthesis, has been shownExpand

Human sarcopenia reveals an increase in SOCS-3 and myostatin and a reduced efficiency of Akt phosphorylation.
Age-related skeletal muscle sarcopenia is linked with increases in falls, fractures, and death and therefore has important socioeconomic consequences. The molecular mechanisms controlling age-relatedExpand

Glycogen synthase localization and activity in rat skeletal muscle is strongly dependent on glycogen content
1 The influence of muscle glycogen content on glycogen synthase (GS) localization and GS activity was investigated in skeletal muscle from male Wistar rats. 2 Two groups of rats were obtained,Expand

Glucose, exercise and insulin: emerging concepts
Physical exercise induces a rapid increase in the rate of glucose uptake in the contracting skeletal muscles. The enhanced membrane glucose transport capacity is caused by a recruitment of glucoseExpand

Physical Fitness in Morbidly Obese Patients: Effect of Gastric Bypass Surgery and Exercise Training
BackgroundThere is a growing consensus that bariatric surgery is currently the most efficacious and long-term treatment for clinically severe obesity. However, it remains to be determined whetherExpand
