Effects of glucose, pyruvate, lactate, and amino acids on muscle protein synthesis.


Protein synthesis was measured in rat diaphragms incubated with serum amino acids + 0.35 mM L-[2,6-3H]tyrosine and different energy-yielding substrates. Muscles incubated with 5.5 mM glucose (with or without actinomycin D) synthesized more protein than those incubated with 11 mM pyruvate or 11 mM lactate. Tissue ATP decreased during incubation with lactate… (More)
