Pyruvate dehydrogenase activation in inactive muscle during and after maximal exercise in men. (1/192)

Pyruvate dehydrogenase activity (PDHa) and acetyl-group accumulation were examined in the inactive deltoid muscle in response to maximal leg exercise in men. Seven subjects completed three consecutive 30-s bouts of maximal isokinetic cycling, with 4-min rest intervals between bouts. Biopsies of the deltoid were obtained before exercise, after bouts 1 and 3, and after 15 min of rest recovery. Inactive muscle lactate (LA) and pyruvate (PYR) contents increased more than twofold (P < 0.05) after exercise (bout 3) and remained elevated after 15 min of recovery (P < 0.05). Increased PYR accumulation secondary to LA uptake by the inactive deltoid was associated with greater PDHa, which progressively increased from 0.71 +/- 0.23 mmol. min-1. kg wet wt-1 at rest to a maximum of 1.83 +/- 0.30 mmol. min-1. kg wet wt-1 after bout 3 (P < 0.05) and remained elevated after 15 min of recovery (1.63 +/- 0.24 mmol. min-1. kg wet wt-1; P < 0.05). Acetyl-CoA and acetylcarnitine accumulations were unaltered. Increased PDHa allowed and did not limit the oxidation of LA and PYR in inactive human skeletal muscle after maximal exercise.  (+info)

A review of nutrients and botanicals in the integrative management of cognitive dysfunction. (2/192)

Dementias and other severe cognitive dysfunction states pose a daunting challenge to existing medical management strategies. An integrative, early intervention approach seems warranted. Whereas, allopathic treatment options are highly limited, nutritional and botanical therapies are available which have proven degrees of efficacy and generally favorable benefit-to-risk profiles. This review covers five such therapies: phosphatidylserine (PS), acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC), vinpocetine, Ginkgo biloba extract (GbE), and Bacopa monniera (Bacopa). PS is a phospholipid enriched in the brain, validated through double-blind trials for improving memory, learning, concentration, word recall, and mood in middle-aged and elderly subjects with dementia or age-related cognitive decline. PS has an excellent benefit-to-risk profile. ALC is an energizer and metabolic cofactor which also benefits various cognitive functions in the middle-aged and elderly, but with a slightly less favorable benefit-to-risk profile. Vinpocetine, found in the lesser periwinkle Vinca minor, is an excellent vasodilator and cerebral metabolic enhancer with proven benefits for vascular-based cognitive dysfunction. Two meta-analyses of GbE demonstrate the best preparations offer limited benefits for vascular insufficiencies and even more limited benefits for Alzheimer's, while "commodity" GbE products offer little benefit, if any at all. GbE (and probably also vinpocetine) is incompatible with blood-thinning drugs. Bacopa is an Ayurvedic botanical with apparent anti-anxiety, anti-fatigue, and memory-strengthening effects. These five substances offer interesting contributions to a personalized approach for restoring cognitive function, perhaps eventually in conjunction with the judicious application of growth factors.  (+info)

Entry of [(1,2-13C2)acetyl]-L-carnitine in liver tricarboxylic acid cycle and lipogenesis: a study by 13C NMR spectroscopy in conscious, freely moving rats. (3/192)

The biochemical pathways involved in acetyl-L-carnitine utilization were investigated in conscious, freely moving rats by 13C NMR spectroscopy. Following 4-h [(1,2-13C2)acetyl]-L-carnitine infusion in fasted animals, the free carnitine levels in serum were increased, and an efflux of unlabelled acetyl-L-carnitine from tissues was observed. [(1,2-13C2)Acetyl]-L-carnitine was found to enter biosynthetic pathways in liver, and the acetyl moiety was incorporated into both cholesterol and 3-hydroxybutyrate carbon skeleton. In accord with the entry of [(1,2-13C2)acetyl]-L-carnitine in the mitochondrial acetylCoA pool associated with tricarboxylic acid cycle, the 13C label was also found in liver glutamate, glutamine, and glutathione. The analysis of the 13C-labelling pattern in 3-hydroxybutyrate and cholesterol carbon skeleton provided evidence that the acetyl-L-carnitine-derived acetylCoA pool used for ketone bodies synthesis in mitochondria was homogeneous, whereas cholesterol was synthesized from two different acetylCoA pools located in the extra- and intramitochondrial compartment, respectively. Furthermore, cholesterol molecules were shown to be preferentially synthesized by the metabolic route involving the direct channelling of CoA-activated mitochondria-derived ketone bodies into 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarylCoA pathway, prior to equilibration of their acyl groups with extramitochondrial acetylCoA pool via acetoacetylCoA thiolase.  (+info)

The effect of aging and acetyl-L-carnitine on the pyruvate transport and oxidation in rat heart mitochondria. (4/192)

The effect of aging and acute treatment with acetyl-L-carnitine on the pyruvate transport and oxidation in rat heart mitochondria was studied. The activity of the pyruvate carrier as well as the rates of pyruvate-supported respiration were both depressed (around 40%) in heart mitochondria from aged rats, the major decrease occurring during the second year of life. Administration of acetyl-L-carnitine to aged rats almost completely restored the rates of these metabolic functions to the level of young control rats. This effect of acetyl-L-carnitine was not due to changes in the content of pyruvate carrier molecules. The heart mitochondrial content of cardiolipin, a key phospholipid necessary for mitochondrial substrate transport, was markedly reduced (approximately 40%) in aged rats. Treatment of aged rats with acetyl-L-carnitine reversed the age-associated decline in cardiolipin content. As the changes in cardiolipin content were correlated with changes in rates of pyruvate transport and oxidation, it is suggested that acetyl-L-carnitine reverses the age-related decrement in the mitochondrial pyruvate metabolism by restoring the normal cardiolipin content.  (+info)

Functional characteristics and tissue distribution pattern of organic cation transporter 2 (OCTN2), an organic cation/carnitine transporter. (5/192)

We have demonstrated in the present study that novel organic cation transporter (OCTN) 2 is a transporter for organic cations as well as carnitine. OCTN2 transports organic cations without involving Na(+), but it transports carnitine only in the presence of Na(+). The ability to transport organic cations and carnitine is demonstrable with human, rat, and mouse OCTN2s. Na(+) does not influence the affinity of OCTN2 for organic cations, but it increases the affinity severalfold for carnitine. The short-chain acyl esters of carnitine are also transported by OCTN2. Two mutations, M352R and P478L, in human OCTN2 are associated with loss of transport function, but the protein expression of these mutants is comparable to that of the wild-type human OCTN2. In situ hybridization in the rat shows that OCTN2 is expressed in the proximal and distal tubules and in the glomeruli in the kidney, in the myocardium, valves, and arterioles in the heart, in the labyrinthine layer of the placenta, and in the cortex, hippocampus, and cerebellum in the brain. This is the first report that OCTN2 is a Na(+)-independent organic cation transporter as well as a Na(+)-dependent carnitine transporter and that OCTN2 is expressed not only in the heart, kidney, and placenta but also in the brain.  (+info)

Skeletal muscle metabolism during high-intensity sprint exercise is unaffected by dichloroacetate or acetate infusion. (6/192)

This study investigated whether increased provision of oxidative substrate would reduce the reliance on nonoxidative ATP production and/or increase power output during maximal sprint exercise. The provision of oxidative substrate was increased at the onset of exercise by the infusion of acetate (AC; increased resting acetylcarnitine) or dichloroacetate [DCA; increased acetylcarnitine and greater activation of pyruvate dehydrogeanse (PDH-a)]. Subjects performed 10 s of maximal cycling on an isokinetic ergometer on three occasions after either DCA, AC, or saline (Con) infusion. Resting PDH-a with DCA was increased significantly over AC and Con trials (3.58 +/- 0.4 vs. 0.52 +/- 0.1 and 0.74 +/- 0.1 mmol. kg wet muscle(-1). min(-1)). DCA and AC significantly increased resting acetyl-CoA (35.2 +/- 4.4 and 22.7 +/- 2.9 vs. 10.2 +/- 1.3 micromol/kg dry muscle) and acetylcarnitine (12.9 +/- 1.4 and 11.0 +/- 1.0 vs. 3.3 +/- 0.6 mmol/kg dry muscle) over Con. Resting contents of phosphocreatine, lactate, ATP, and glycolytic intermediates were not different among trials. Average power output and total work done were not different among the three 10-s sprint trials. Postexercise, PDH-a in AC and Con trials had increased significantly but was still significantly lower than in DCA trial. Acetyl-CoA did not increase in any trial, whereas acetylcarnitine increased significantly only in DCA. Exercise caused identical decreases in ATP and phosphocreatine and identical increases in lactate, pyruvate, and glycolytic intermediates in all trials. These data suggest that there is an inability to utilize extra oxidative substrate (from either stored acetylcarnitine or increased PDH-a) during exercise at this intensity, possibly because of O(2) and/or metabolic limitations.  (+info)

Regulation of skeletal muscle glycogen phosphorylase and PDH during maximal intermittent exercise. (7/192)

The time course for the activation of glycogen phosphorylase (Phos) and pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) and their allosteric regulators was determined in human skeletal muscle during repeated bouts of maximal exercise. Six subjects completed three 30-s bouts of maximal isokinetic cycling separated by 4-min recovery periods. Muscle biopsies were taken at rest and at 6, 15, and 30 s of exercise during bouts 1 and 3. Phos was rapidly activated within the first 6 s of bout 1 from 12% at rest to 47% at 6 s. The activation of PDH increased from 14% at rest to 48% at 6 s and 95% at 15 s of bout 1. Phos reverted back to basal values at the end of the first bout, whereas PDH remained fully activated. In contrast, in the third bout, PDH was 42% at rest and was activated more rapidly and was nearly completely activated by 6 s, whereas Phos remained at basal levels (range 14-20%). Lactate accumulation was marked in the first bout and increased progressively from 2.7 to 76.1 mmol/kg dry wt with no further increase in bout 3. Glycogen utilization was also marked in the first bout and was negligible in bout 3. The rapid activation of Phos and slower activation of PDH in bout 1 was probably due to Ca(2+) release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Lactate accumulation appeared to be due to an imbalance of the relative activities of Phos and PDH. The increase in H(+) concentration may have served to reduce pyruvate production by inhibiting Phos transformation and may have simultaneously activated PDH in the third bout such that there was a better matching between pyruvate production and oxidation and minimal lactate accumulation. As each bout progressed and with successive bouts, there was a decreasing ability to stimulate substrate phosphorylation through phosphocreatine hydrolysis and glycolysis and a shift toward greater reliance on oxidative phosphorylation.  (+info)

Acetyl-L-carnitine. (8/192)

Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is an ester of the trimethylated amino acid, L-carnitine, and is synthesized in the human brain, liver, and kidney by the enzyme ALC-transferase. Acetyl-L-carnitine facilitates the uptake of acetyl CoA into the mitochondria during fatty acid oxidation, enhances acetylcholine production, and stimulates protein and membrane phospholipid synthesis. ALC, similar in structure to acetylcholine, also exerts a cholinomimetic effect. Studies have shown that ALC may be of benefit in treating Alzheimer's dementia, depression in the elderly, HIV infection, diabetic neuropathies, ischemia and reperfusion of the brain, and cognitive impairment of alcoholism.  (+info)

It has been suggested that imbalance between TCA-cycle flux and β-oxidation may underlie insulin resistance, a predisposing factor for the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Acetylcarnitine concentration is suggested to be a marker of such imbalance. It is expected that when TCA-cycle capacity is high (a high oxidative capacity), less acetylcarnitine will accumulate, because of an improved balance between supply and demand of lipids.. The major research objective is to examine if acute exercise results in a more pronounced increase in acetylcarnitine concentration in sedentary subjects compared to endurance-trained subjects and if the exercise-induced increase in acetylcarnitine is restored more quickly in endurance-trained subjects when compared to sedentary subjects.. The investigators hypothesize that the increase in acetylcarnitine levels will be lower in trained subjects when compared to sedentary subjects, due to a better balance between lipid supply and utilization by the ...

Introduction In the treatment of patients with diabetes, one objective is an improvement of cardiac metabolism to alleviate the left ventricular (LV) function. For this study, we compared the effects of acetyl-l-carnitine (one of the carnitine derivatives) and of oxfenicine (a carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 inhibitor) on cardiac pumping mechanics in streptozotocin-induced diabetes in male Wistar rats, with a particular focus on the pressure-flow-volume relationship. Methods Diabetes was induced by a single tail vein injection of 55 mg kg−1 streptozotocin. The diabetic animals were treated on a daily basis with either acetyl-L-carnitine (1 g L−1 in drinking water) or oxfenicine (150 mg kg−1 by oral gavage) for 8 wk. They were also compared with untreated age-matched diabetic controls. LV pressure and ascending aortic flow signals were recorded to calculate the maximal systolic elastance (E max) and the theoretical maximum flow (Q max).

Animal models suggest that acetylcarnitine production is essential for maintaining metabolic flexibility and insulin sensitivity. Because current methods to detect acetylcarnitine involve biopsy of the tissue of interest, noninvasive alternatives to measure acetylcarnitine concentrations could facilitate our understanding of its physiological relevance in humans. Here, we investigated the use of long-echo time (TE) proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) to measure skeletal muscle acetylcarnitine concentrations on a clinical 3T scanner. We applied long-TE 1H-MRS to measure acetylcarnitine in endurance-trained athletes, lean and obese sedentary subjects, and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients to cover a wide spectrum in insulin sensitivity. A long-TE 1H-MRS protocol was implemented for successful detection of skeletal muscle acetylcarnitine in these individuals. There were pronounced differences in insulin sensitivity, as measured by hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp, and skeletal ...

Deprivation of oxygen and glucose is the main cause of neuronal cell death during cerebral infarction and can result in severe morbidity and mortality. In general, the neuroprotective therapies that are applied after ischemic stroke have been unsuccessful, despite many investigations. Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) plays an important role in mitochondrial metabolism and in modulating the coenzyme A (CoA)/acyl-CoA ratio. We investigated the protective effects of ALCAR against oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) in neural stem cells (NSCs). We measured cell viability, proliferation, apoptosis, and intracellular signaling protein levels after treatment with varying concentrations of ALCAR under OGD for 8 h. ALCAR protected NSCs against OGD by reducing apoptosis and restoring proliferation. Its protective effects are associated with increases in the expression of survival-related proteins, such as phosphorylated Akt (pAkt), phosphorylated glycogen synthase kinase 3b (pGSK3b), B cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2), and ...

Several experimental studies have shown that levocarnitine reduces myocardial injury after ischemia and reperfusion by counteracting the toxic effect of high levels of free fatty acids, which occur in ischemia, and by improving carbohydrate metabolism. In addition to increasing the rate of fatty acid transport into mitochondria, levocarnitine reduces the intramitochondrial ratio of acetyl-CoA to free CoA, thus stimulating the activity of pyruvate dehydrogenase and increasing the oxidation of pyruvate. Supplementation of the myocardium with levocarnitine results in an increased tissue carnitine content, a prevention of the loss of high-energy phosphate stores, ischemic injury, and improved heart recovery on reperfusion. Clinically, levocarnitine has been shown to have anti-ischemic properties. In small short-term studies, levocarnitine acts as an antianginal agent that reduces ST segment depression and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. These short-term studies also show that levocarnitine ...
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID with ACETYL-L-CARNITINE HCL Alpha-Lipoic (ALA) acid, is found inside every cell of the body. It is called the universal antioxidant. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is also a natural super antioxidant that specifically benefits the brain. ALCAR helps supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the mitochondria. Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown in clinical studies [More] ...
Acetyl-l-Carnitine plays a role in the energy-producing cycle in the mitochondria. It aids in producing important communication chemicals in the brain, and has been shown to protect the brain after a stroke. It might slow the progression of Alzheimers disease. Recent studies reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, replicating previous German studies, showed that Acetyl-l-Carnitine and Alpha-Lipoic Acid interact synergistically to help protect the mitochondria from free radical damage. (The mitochondria are the fireboxes for our cells in which sugars are burned to power the cells. Most free radical damage occurs within the mitochondria.) In these animal studies, rats that were given acetyl-l-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid lived a maximum of 38 months, whereas rats in two control groups lived a maximum of 24 and 26 months, respectively. ...
Despite intensive research, there have been no major breakthroughs in the treatment of depression in the last decades, although drug targets other than monoamines have been identified (23, 24). Current antidepressant drugs show limited clinical efficacy, and approximately 25-40% of depressed patients are treatment resistant. Moreover, common antidepressants require at least 2-3 wk to significantly improve mood in depressed patients, leaving severely ill patients at risk for suicide in the early phases of treatment. These limitations could be overcome by drugs that target molecular events lying at the core of depressive disorders without interfering with the physiological function of the monoaminergic system.. Our findings provide strong insight into the pathogenesis of major depression that may pave the way to the development of drugs with faster onset of antidepressant effects and good profile of efficacy and tolerability. We found that LAC, a naturally occurring molecule, causes a rapid, ...
It s a bit like a scene from a movie: the elderly scientist, working late in the lab, takes a sip of potion from a bubbling flask and undergoes a miraculous transformation as his body regains its youth and vigour. Pure fantasy? Maybe not because that s pretty much what happened to elderly laboratory rats when they were fed two dietary supplements in a recent landmark study. According to the professor in charge of the study, the old rats became so full of energy, they got up and did the Macarena !. Over the last 18 months, scientific interest in alpha lipoic acid (ALA) and acetyl L-carnitine (ALC), the two supplements used in the studies, has exploded and a large number of studies are now under way with humans. Initial results look encouraging, but what are the implications for athletes and can these nutrients be harnessed to improve performance?. Some readers may be familiar with the amino acid carnitine, which carries fatty acids into the mitochondria (the cellular furnaces), where they are ...

Acetyl L-Carnitine is the acetylated ester of the amino acid L-carnitine, and plays an important role in the transfer and utilization of long-chain fatty acids, which are used in the production of energy. It supports biosynthesis of acetylcholine, the most abundant neurotransmitter in the body, regulating activities of vital organs and blood vessels, and communication between nerves and muscles.**. Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.. In the brain, acetylcholine helps facilitate memory and learning. Acetyl L-carnitine is structurally similar to acetylcholine, and brain neurons stimulated by acetylcholine are receptive to stimulation by ALC.. Acetyl L-carnitine is one of the most extensively researched brain nutrients with a proven ability to enhance mental energy and wellness ...
Q. What precautions, adverse reactions and contraindications for each of the major ingredients in Juvenon Cellular Health Supplement have been reported in scientific literature?. A. Pregnant and lactating women are advised not to consume either acetyl L-carnitine or alpha lipoic acid, because of lack of long-term safety data.. With regard to acetyl L-carnitine, the Supplement Monographs published by the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR), a well-known reference handbook, indicates that no contraindications are known. Adverse reactions reported by the PDR include mild gastrointestinal symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and abdominal cramps, as well as headache. Other sources report an increase in agitation or restlessness. An increase in seizure frequency has been reported in persons with seizure disorder. Persons with Alzheimers Disease may exhibit psychiatric disturbances, such as depression and confusion, but it is uncertain whether these effects are due to acetyl L-carnitine or the disease ...

The level and profiles of blood free carnitine and acylcarnitines, obtained by acylcarnitine analysis using tandem mass spectrometry, reflect various metabolic conditions. We aimed to examine the level of free carnitine and acylcarnitines in liver cirrhosis patients by acylcarnitine analysis and determine the clinical and subjective factors associated with blood carnitine fraction levels in liver cirrhosis. We compared blood carnitine fractions in 54 liver cirrhotic patients to other laboratory test results and questionnaire answers. In almost all patients, the blood levels of free carnitine (C0) and acetylcarnitine (C2) were within the normal reference range. However, in some patients, the levels of long-chain acylcarnitines, such as C16 and C18:1-acylcarnitine, were higher than the normal reference range. Liver function, assessed by Child-Pugh score, was significantly correlated with the blood level of each carnitine fraction measured (C0, C2, C3, C4, C6, C10, C12, C12:1, C14:1, C16, C18:1, and C18:2

Todays post from neuropathyharwich.com (see link below) is a very general article about the co enzyme, (Alpha) Lipoic acid as a benefit to neuropathy patients. However, you will probably need to do more research, or ask your physician what he or she thinks before starting to take it. It does give a sensible warning though, that Lipoic Acid on its own, is not a wonder cure (it is often taken with Acetyl-L-Carnitine) and if youre going to take it, it may be best to use it as part of a very carefully considered package. There are other useful articles on Alpha Lipoic acid in the alphabetical list to the right of this blog and because these supplements are not cheap, you need to make the right decision before buying them. That said, many people do gain benefit from taking Lipoic acid and others. ...

In the fed state, most fatty acid-derived acylcarnitine species were present at similar levels in wild-type compared to the knockout mice. Notable exceptions included acetylcarnitine (C2) and beta-OH-butyrylcarnitine (C4OH, a strong marker of beta-oxidation and ketone metabolism), both of which were markedly decreased in plasma, liver, and skeletal muscle of PPARalpha -/- mice regardless of feeding status. Succinylcarnitine (C4DC), which arises from the TCA cycle intermediate succinyl-CoA, was reduced in plasma and liver of PPARalpha -/-mice, independent of condition. Skeletal muscle concentrations of this metabolite were also low in PPARalpha -/- compared to wild-type mice, but only in the fasted state ...

When your body takes in carbs, beta cells in the pancreas, which is often considered to be the least-understood organ in the body, produce and secrete insulin, which is a storage hormone. This is where the gain train either rockets out of the station, or slams the brakes and braces for impact.. A lot of people automatically go into the mindset of eat carbs, get fat, which is only somewhat true. The spike in insulin your body gets from the intake of carbs can be used to your advantage. Insulin is actually the most anabolic hormone in the body. It is responsible for your bodys uptake of glucose and amino acids, which in turn, forms glycogen and skeletal muscle tissue (i.e. GAINZ)..

Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC), a natural biologically active substance under physiological conditions is present in the body in various organs and tissues, including the CNS, is involved in the metabolism of fatty acids and carbohydrates. Pharmacological and biological activity of ALK is largely due to the metabolic effects of L - carnitine and acetyl groups, included in its composition. Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC), the biologically active form of L-carnitine, a key substance in the process of catabolism of fats and the production of energy in the body. ALA is synthesized in brain tissue, the liver and kidneys from L-carnitine when the enzyme Karntnerstrasse. Since ALK supplies an activated acetate directly in the matrix of the mitochondria for the formation of acetyl-COA that participates in the tricarboxylic acid cycle, without additional expenditure of energy, it is a readily available substrate for the launch of energy-dependent metabolic processes in the mitochondria. Through the complete energy ...
