BACKGROUND & AIMS Amino acid transporters have been proposed as regulators of protein synthesis. The primary aim of this study was to determine whether amino acid transporter expression is increased in human muscle following resistance exercise (RE) coupled with essential amino acid (EAA) ingestion, and whether a differential response occurs with aging. Secondly, we aimed to compare this response to a previous study examining RE alone. METHODS Young (n = 7, 30 ± 2 yr) and older men (n = 6, 70… CONTINUE READING
