The production of reactive oxygen species in skeletal muscle is linked with muscle fatigue. This study investigated whether the antioxidant compound N-acetylcysteine (NAC) augments time to fatigue during prolonged, submaximal cycling exercise. Seven men completed a double-blind, crossover study, receiving NAC or placebo before and during cycling exercise, comprising 45 min at 70% of peak oxygen consumption (Vo2 peak) and then to fatigue at 90% Vo2 peak. NAC was intravenously infused at 125 mg… Expand
N-acetylcysteine enhances muscle cysteine and glutathione availability and attenuates fatigue during prolonged exercise in endurance-trained individuals.
TLDR
NAC improved performance in well-trained individuals, with enhanced muscle cysteine and GSH availability a likely mechanism. Expand
Influence of N-acetylcysteine administration on pulmonary O2 uptake kinetics and exercise tolerance in humans
TLDR
The results suggest that exercise-induced redox perturbations may contribute to fatigue development in recreationally-active adults. Expand
Effects of N-acetylcysteine on respiratory muscle fatigue during heavy exercise
TLDR
It is suggested that an acute dose of NAC reduces RMF during heavy exercise, suggesting that oxidative stress is a contributing factor. Expand
Effects of oral N-acetylcysteine on fatigue, critical power, and W′ in exercising humans
TLDR
It is demonstrated that oral NAC was successful in extending time to fatigue at 80% Pmax but not at higher work rates, and there were no significant differences in V(O2) kinetics. Expand
N-acetylcysteine alters substrate metabolism during high-intensity cycle exercise in well-trained humans.
TLDR
It is suggested that NAC alters substrate metabolism and muscle fibre type recruitment during HIIE, which is detrimental to time-trial performance. Expand
ffects of oral N-acetylcysteine on fatigue , critical power , and W ′ in exercising umans
The accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is associated with muscular fatigue. The antioxidant N-acetylcysteine (NAC) can extend time to fatigue (TTF), but the effect appears to be exerciseExpand
N‐Acetylcysteine infusion does not affect glucose disposal during prolonged moderate‐intensity exercise in humans
TLDR
Unlike findings in mouse muscle ex vivo, NAC does not attenuate skeletal muscle glucose disposal or AMPK activation during moderate‐intensity exercise in humans. Expand
Acute supplementation of N‐acetylcysteine does not affect muscle blood flow and oxygenation characteristics during handgrip exercise
TLDR
It is concluded that acute NAC supplementation does not alter oxygen delivery during exercise in men and the underlying mechanisms are unknown. Expand
Effect of N-acetylcysteine on cycling performance after intensified training.
TLDR
Oral NAC supplementation improved cycling performance via an improved redox balance and promoted adaptive processes in well-trained athletes undergoing strenuous physical training. Expand
N‐acetylcysteine attenuates the decline in muscle Na+,K+‐pump activity and delays fatigue during prolonged exercise in humans
TLDR
It is confirmed that the antioxidant NAC attenuates muscle fatigue, in part via improved K+ regulation, and point to a role for ROS in muscle fatigue. Expand

N-acetylcysteine infusion alters blood redox status but not time to fatigue during intense exercise in humans.
TLDR
NAC infusion altered blood redox status during intense, intermittent exercise but did not attenuate fatigue, and increased the rise in plasma K(+) concentration-to-work ratio, indicating impaired K(+, regulation. Expand
N-acetylcysteine inhibits muscle fatigue in humans.
TLDR
N-acetylcysteine pretreatment can improve performance of human limb muscle during fatiguing exercise, suggesting that oxidative stress plays a causal role in the fatigue process and identifying antioxidant therapy as a novel intervention that may be useful clinically. Expand
Effect of N-acetylcysteine on human diaphragm strength and fatigability.
TLDR
Data suggest that NAC may attenuate low-frequency human diaphragm fatigue and electrophrenic twitch stimulation and twitch occlusion in four healthy subjects after subjects were premedicated with antihistamines. Expand
Effects of N-acetylcysteine on in vitro diaphragm function are temperature dependent.
TLDR
It is concluded that NAC has direct temperature-dependent effects on diaphragm function that are consistent with the properties of NAC as an antioxidant and suggest important but complex effects of oxidant stress on skeletal muscle. Expand
Effect of N-acetylcysteine on diaphragm fatigue.
TLDR
To determine whether pretreatment with N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a thiol-containing compound, would attenuate the rate of development of diaphragm fatigue, rabbits were treated with intravenous NAC before fatigue and given intravenous saline after fatigue. Expand
N-acetylcysteine depresses contractile function and inhibits fatigue of diaphragm in vitro.
TLDR
Exogenous antioxidants exert stereotypical effects on contractile function that differ between unfatigued and fatiguing muscle, and NAC effects mimic the effects of other antioxidant agents with different mechanisms of action. Expand
Effect of free radical scavengers on diaphragmatic fatigue.
TLDR
Diaphragm fatigue resulting from repetitive low-frequency stimulation is associated with lipid peroxidation within this muscle and that pretreatment with free radical scavengers prevents lipid per oxidation and reduces the rate of development of fatigue. Expand
Exogenous glutathione increases endurance to muscle effort in mice.
TLDR
Experiments have been performed to discover whether exogenous GSH modifies endurance to exhaustive swimming in mice, and reduced glutathione, an efficient intracellular physiological antioxidant, increased endurance to swimming by respectively 102.4%, 120.0% and 140.7%. Expand
The Roles of Ionic Processes in Muscular Fatigue During Intense Exercise
TLDR
Intense sprint training in man attenuates muscular fatigue during short term maximal exercise, accompanied by improved potassium homeostasis and possibly, improved regulation of muscular acidosis, both factors which may reduce muscular fatigue. Expand
Free radicals may contribute to oxidative skeletal muscle fatigue.
TLDR
Free radicals appeared to attenuate oxidative skeletal muscle function in mouse soleus in vitro and canine gastrocnemius-plantaris preparations as well as determine the effect of chelating iron in these animals at the animal's blood pressure. Expand
