Exercise produces changes in protein and amino acid metabolism. These changes include degradation of the branched-chain amino acids, production of alanine and glutamine, and changes in protein turnover. One of the amino acid most affected by exercise is the branched-chain amino acid leucine. Recently, there has been an increased understanding of the role of leucine in metabolic regulations and remarkable new findings about the role of leucine in intracellular signaling. Leucine appears to exert… Expand
Leucine regulates translation initiation of protein synthesis in skeletal muscle after exercise.
TLDR
Together, insulin and leucine allow skeletal muscle to coordinate protein synthesis with physiological state and dietary intake and are synergistic with insulin via the phosphoinositol 3-kinase signaling pathway. Expand
Branched-Chain Amino Acids in Exercise Leucine Regulates Translation Initiation of Protein Synthesis in Skeletal Muscle after Exercise 1 , 2
High-performance physical activity and postexercise recovery lead to significant changes in amino acid and protein metabolism in skeletal muscle. Central to these changes is an increase in theExpand
Branched-chain amino acids activate key enzymes in protein synthesis after physical exercise.
TLDR
The results suggest that B CAAs activate mTOR and p70 S6 kinase in human muscle in the recovery period after exercise and that GSK-3 is not involved in the anabolic action of BCAAs on human muscle. Expand
An Overview of Branched-Chain Amino Acids in Exercise and Sports Nutrition
TLDR
The role of specific amino acids, namely the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), especially leucine, regarding their metabolism, the molecular pathways they activate in skeletal muscle and their physiological effects are discussed. Expand

TLDR
This review provides an overview of the current understanding of metabolic roles of leucine and proposes a metabolic framework to evaluate the merits of a higher protein diet for weight loss. Expand
Leucine: Considerations about the Effects of Supplementation
TLDR
Leucine appears as an important supplement for health benefits as an adjunct in the treatment of insulin resistance and may assist in gaining muscle mass in the elderly, as well as contributing to recovery from injuries and wounds in the muscle tissue. Expand

Effects of different doses of leucine ingestion following eight weeks of resistance exercise on protein synthesis and hypertrophy of skeletal muscle in rats
TLDR
Even though some signaling proteins were increased, or some differences existed among groups, there were no differences in muscle mass between the leucine administration and exercise training combined with leukine administration groups in the present study. Expand

TLDR
There is no evidence that habitual exercise increases protein requirements; indeed protein metabolism may become more efficient as a result of training. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the maximal flux in the TCA-cycle is reduced in glycogen depleted muscles due to insufficient T CA-cycle anaplerosis and that this presents a limitation for the maximal rate of fatty acid oxidation. Expand
Regulation of protein synthesis by branched-chain amino acids
TLDR
In liver, branched-chain amino acids enhance the translation of a particular set of mRNAs typified by those encoding the ribosomal proteins and translation elongation factors, suggesting that brancherised amino acids upregulate the capacity of the tissue to synthesize protein. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the maximal flux in the TCA-cycle is reduced in glycogen-depleted muscles due to insufficient T CA-cycle anaplerosis, and that this presents a limitation for the maximal rate of fatty acid oxidation. Expand
Bidirectional modulation of insulin action by amino acids.
TLDR
Data support the hypothesis that amino acids act as specific positive signals for maintenance of protein stores, while inhibiting other actions of insulin at multiple levels and indicate crosstalk between hormonal and nutritional signals. Expand
Influence of amino acid availability on protein turnover in perfused skeletal muscle.
TLDR
Comparison of the effects of amino acids with those of glucose and palmitate indicated that amino acids were not acting by providing substrates for energy metabolism, and the age and or nitritional state of the animal may influence the response of skeletal muscle to altered amino acid levels.

TLDR
It is concluded that amino acids, particularly the branched-chain ones, increase the sensitivity of muscle protein synthesis to insulin. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that leucine upregulates protein synthesis in skeletal muscle by enhancing both the activity and synthesis of proteins involved in mRNA translation. Expand

TLDR
Through the integrated use of several energy sources, several amino acids play crucial roles in providing the carbon sources for maintaining blood glucose homeostasis during exercise and glycogen restitution during recovery, sustaining the whole metabolic apparatus. Expand
An abundant supply of amino acids enhances the metabolic effect of exercise on muscle protein.
TLDR
It is concluded that the stimulatory effect of exogenous amino acids on muscle protein synthesis is enhanced by prior exercise, perhaps in part because of enhanced blood flow, implying that protein intake immediately after exercise may be more anabolic than when ingested at some later time. Expand
