Using in vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS), a new peak resonating at 2.13 ppm post-exercise has been attributed in the literature to the acetyl groups of acetylcarnitine. Since this peak is inconsistently generated by various submaximal exercise regimens, this study aimed at (a) verification of the previous chemical assignment, (b) determination of exercise conditions necessary for its induction, and (c) documentation of the recovery kinetics through 60 minutes following… CONTINUE READING
