Muscle buffer capacity estimated from pH changes during rest-to-work transitions.

Abstract

Gated phosphorus nuclear magnetic resonance (31P-NMR) spectra were acquired after 5 or 9 s of 5-Hz stimulation in rat and cat skeletal muscles, respectively. Net phosphocreatine (PCr) hydrolysis was associated with an intracellular alkalinization of 0.08 +/- 0.01 and 0.05 +/- 0.003 pH units in isolated perfused cat biceps and soleus, respectively, and 0.12… (More)
