REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Monocarboxylate transporters (MCT) facilitate the transport of lactate across membranes. In red blood cells (RBC) the transport activity varies interindividually due to differences in the amount of an ancillary protein CD147. Similar variations in muscles could have a great influence on lactate accumulation during exercise. OBJECTIVES To study the expression of MCT isoforms and CD147 in the middle gluteal muscle. METHODS Venous blood and muscle biopsy samples… CONTINUE READING
