Continuous involuntary sustained muscle contraction which is often a manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES. When an affected muscle is passively stretched, the degree of resistance remains constant regardless of the rate at which the muscle is stretched. This feature helps to distinguish rigidity from MUSCLE SPASTICITY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p73)
Studies comparing two or more treatments or interventions in which the subjects or patients, upon completion of the course of one treatment, are switched to another. In the case of two treatments, A and B, half the subjects are randomly allocated to receive these in the order A, B and half to receive them in the order B, A. A criticism of this design is that effects of the first treatment may carry over into the period when the second is given. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)

Regulation of chamber-specific gene expression in the developing heart by Irx4. (1/8990)

The vertebrate heart consists of two types of chambers, the atria and the ventricles, which differ in their contractile and electrophysiological properties. Little is known of the molecular mechanisms by which these chambers are specified during embryogenesis. Here a chicken iroquois-related homeobox gene, Irx4, was identified that has a ventricle-restricted expression pattern at all stages of heart development. Irx4 protein was shown to regulate the chamber-specific expression of myosin isoforms by activating the expression of the ventricle myosin heavy chain-1 (VMHC1) and suppressing the expression of the atrial myosin heavy chain-1 (AMHC1) in the ventricles. Thus, Irx4 may play a critical role in establishing chamber-specific gene expression in the developing heart.  (+info)

Gamma-Actinin, a new regulatory protein from rabbit skeletal muscle. I. Purification and characterization. (2/8990)

A new regulatory protein which we have designated as gamma-actinin has been isolated from native thin filaments of rabbit skeletal muscle. Depolymerized native thin filaments were fractionated by salting out with ammonium sulfate, and the precipitates obtained at 40--60% ammonium sulfate saturation were further subjected to DEAE-Sephadex and Sephadex G-200 column chromatography. The purified gamma-actinin was shown to have a chain weight of 35,000 daltons and had a strong inhibitory action on the polymerization of G-actin. The results of amino acid analysis indicated a unique amino acid composition of gamma-actinin as compared with other structural proteins of muscle. Non-polar and neutral amino acid residues were abundant. One cysteine residue was contained per one molecule of gamma-actinin and played a critical role in the maintenance of the inhibitory activity. Pelleting of gamma-actinin with F-actin showed that gamma-actinin binds to F-action.  (+info)

Connectin, an elastic protein from myofibrils. (3/8990)

The elastic protein isolated from myofibrils of chicken skeletal muscle was compared with extracellular non-collagenous reticulin prepared from chicken liver and skeletal muscle. The amino acid compositions of these proteins were similar except that their contents of Phe, Leu, Cys/2, and Hyp were different. The impregnations of the elastic protein and reticulin with silver were also different. The reticulin was not at all elastic. It also differed from reticulin in solubility and antigenicity. It is proposed to call the intracellular elastic protein connectin.  (+info)

Model-independent analysis of the orientation of fluorescent probes with restricted mobility in muscle fibers. (4/8990)

The orientation of proteins in ordered biological samples can be investigated using steady-state polarized fluorescence from probes conjugated to the protein. A general limitation of this approach is that the probes typically exhibit rapid orientational motion ("wobble") with respect to the protein backbone. Here we present a method for characterizing the extent of this wobble and for removing its effects from the available information about the static orientational distribution of the probes. The analysis depends on four assumptions: 1) the probe wobble is fast compared with the nanosecond time scale of its excited-state decay; 2) the orientational distributions of the absorption and emission transition dipole moments are cylindrically symmetrical about a common axis c fixed in the protein; 3) protein motions are negligible during the excited-state decay; 4) the distribution of c is cylindrically symmetrical about the director of the experimental sample. In a muscle fiber, the director is the fiber axis, F. All of the information on the orientational order of the probe that is available from measurements of linearly polarized fluorescence is contained in five independent polarized fluorescence intensities measured with excitation and emission polarizers parallel or perpendicular to F and with the propagation axis of the detected fluorescence parallel or perpendicular to that of the excitation. The analysis then yields the average second-rank and fourth-rank order parameters ( and ) of the angular distribution of c relative to F, and and , the average second-rank order parameters of the angular distribution for wobble of the absorption and emission transition dipole moments relative to c. The method can also be applied to other cylindrically ordered systems such as oriented lipid bilayer membranes and to processes slower than fluorescence that may be observed using longer-lived optically excited states.  (+info)

Aging-specific expression of Drosophila hsp22. (5/8990)

hsp22 is among the least abundantly expressed Drosophila heat shock (hs) genes during both development and heat stress. In contrast, hsp22 was found to be the most abundantly expressed hs gene during Drosophila aging. During aging, hsp22 RNA was induced 60-fold in the head, with somewhat lower level induction in abdomen and thorax. Induction of the other hs gene RNAs was 150-fold, with particularly abundant expression in eye tissue. Aging-specific induction of hsp22 was reproduced by hsp22:lacZ fusion reporter constructs in transgenic flies. Analysis of specific promoter mutations in transgenic flies indicated that functional heat shock response elements are required for hsp22 induction during aging. Finally, comparison of hsp22 RNA and protein expression patterns suggests that aging-specific expression of hsp22 is regulated at both the transcriptional and the posttranscriptional levels. Aging-specific induction of hsp22 is discussed with regard to current evolutionary theories of aging.  (+info)

SNAP-23 participates in SNARE complex assembly in rat adipose cells. (6/8990)

SNARE proteins are required for vesicle docking and fusion in eukaryotic cells in processes as diverse as homotypic membrane fusion and synaptic vesicle exocytosis [SNARE stands for SNAP receptor, where SNAP is soluble NSF attachment protein]. The SNARE proteins syntaxin 4 and vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP) 2/3 also participate in the insulin-stimulated translocation of GLUT4 from intracellular vesicles to the plasma membrane in adipose cells. We now report the molecular cloning and characterization of rat SNAP-23, a ubiquitously expressed homologue of the essential neuronal SNARE protein SNAP-25 (synaptosomal-associated protein of 25 kDa). Rat SNAP-23 is 86% and 98% identical respectively to human and mouse SNAP-23. Southern blot analysis reveals that the rat, mouse and human SNAP-23 genes encode species-specific isoforms of the same protein. Co-immunoprecipitation of syntaxin 4 and SNAP-23 shows association of these two proteins in rat adipose cell plasma membranes, and insulin stimulation does not alter the SNAP-23/syntaxin 4 complex. In addition, we demonstrate for the first time the participation of SNAP-23, along with syntaxin 4 and VAMP2/3, in the formation of 20S SNARE complexes prepared using rat adipose cell membranes and recombinant alpha-SNAP and NSF proteins. The stoichiometry of the SNARE complexes formed is essentially identical using membranes from either unstimulated or insulin-stimulated adipose cells. These data demonstrate that rat SNAP-23 associates with syntaxin 4 before insulin stimulation and is present in the SNARE complexes known to mediate the translocation of GLUT4 from intracellular vesicles to the plasma membrane of rat adipose cells.  (+info)

Tumour necrosis factor-alpha regulates expression of the CCAAT-enhancer-binding proteins (C/EBPs) alpha and beta and determines the occupation of the C/EBP site in the promoter of the insulin-responsive glucose-transporter gene in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. (7/8990)

We have demonstrated previously that treatment of 3T3-L1 adipocytes with tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF) results in a rapid (4 h) and significant (75-80%) reduction in the rate of transcription of the GLUT4 gene. Control of GLUT4 gene transcription has been suggested at least in part to reside with the CCAAT-enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP) family (alpha, beta and delta isoforms) of transcription factors. Using electrophoretic mobility shift assays, we have examined the ability of TNF to alter the occupation of the C/EBP site in the GLUT4 promoter. The data suggest that in fully differentiated adipocytes the C/EBP site is a ligand for predominantly alpha/alpha homodimers; however, after exposure to TNF, a shift in occupancy of the site occurs and the ligands become alpha/beta heterodimers and beta/beta homodimers. Partner selection in dimer formation appears to be controlled by selective translocation of the beta-isoform from the cytosol to the nucleus after exposure of the cells to TNF.  (+info)

Intestinal trefoil factor binds to intestinal epithelial cells and induces nitric oxide production: priming and enhancing effects of mucin. (8/8990)

Intestinal trefoil factor (ITF or TFF3), NO and epithelium-associated mucin have important roles in sustaining mucosal integrity in the gastrointestinal tract. In the present study we examined ITF-binding molecules on IEC-18 cells (an intestinal epithelial cell line) with the use of flow cytometry and localized these molecules on the cell surface by confocal microscopy. Furthermore, we studied the interaction of mucin and ITF and their co-operative effect on NO production by the epithelium. Stimulation of cells with mucin (5 mg/ml) for 90 min resulted in a 5-fold increase in ITF binding. Treatment of IEC-18 cells with actinomycin D or cycloheximide attenuated mucin-enhanced ITF binding. Ligand blot analysis confirmed the induction of ITF-binding protein in IEC-18 cells by mucin. These results indicate that transcriptional and translational mechanisms are involved in the effect of mucin. Treatment with ITF overnight resulted in a low level of nitrite production by the cells, a 5-fold increase over control, in a concentration-dependent manner. ITF-induced NO production was attenuated by 1400W, a selective type II nitric oxide synthase (NOS2) inhibitor. By immunoblotting we found that NOS2 was up-regulated by ITF treatment. Priming IEC-18 cells with mucin for 90 min enhanced the effect of ITF on NO production, suggesting that the up-regulation of ITF-binding molecules by mucin might be physiologically relevant. Taken together, these observations indicate (1) that ITF-binding molecules that are up-regulated by mucin exist on the intestinal epithelial surface, and (2) that ITF modulates epithelial NO production via the NOS2 pathway, which is enhanced by mucin.  (+info)

Preservation of skeletal muscle mass is of great importance for maintaining both metabolic health and functional capacity. Muscle mass maintenance is regulated by the balance between muscle protein breakdown and synthesis rates. Both muscle protein breakdown and synthesis rates have been shown to be highly responsive to physical activity and food intake. Food intake, and protein ingestion in particular, directly stimulates muscle protein synthesis rates. The postprandial muscle protein synthetic response to feeding is regulated on a number of levels, including dietary protein digestion and amino acid absorption, splanchnic amino acid retention, postprandial insulin release, skeletal muscle tissue perfusion, amino acid uptake by muscle, and intramyocellular signaling. The postprandial muscle protein synthetic response to feeding is blunted in many conditions characterized by skeletal muscle loss, such as aging and muscle disuse. Therefore, it is important to define food characteristics that modulate
Purpose: Erythropoietin (EPO) is a renal cytokine that is primarily involved in hematopoiesis while also playing a role in non-hematopoietic tissues expressing the EPO-receptor (EPOR). The EPOR is present in human skeletal muscle. In mouse skeletal muscle, EPO stimulation can activate the AKT serine/threonine kinase 1 (AKT) signaling pathway, the main positive regulator of muscle protein synthesis. We hypothesized that a single intravenous EPO injection combined with acute resistance exercise would have a synergistic effect on skeletal muscle protein synthesis via activation of the AKT pathway.Methods: Ten young (24.2 ± 0.9 years) and 10 older (66.6 ± 1.1 years) healthy subjects received a primed, constant infusion of [ring-13C6] L-phenylalanine and a single injection of 10,000 IU epoetin-beta or placebo in a double-blind randomized, cross-over design. 2 h after the injection, the subjects completed an acute bout of leg extension resistance exercise to stimulate skeletal muscle protein synthesis
TY - JOUR. T1 - Rapamycin administration in humans blocks the contraction-induced increase in skeletal muscle protein synthesis. AU - Drummond, Micah J.. AU - Fry, Christopher. AU - Glynn, Erin L.. AU - Dreyer, Hans C.. AU - Dhanani, Shaheen. AU - Timmerman, Kyle L.. AU - Volpi, Elena. AU - Rasmussen, Blake. PY - 2009. Y1 - 2009. N2 - Muscle protein synthesis and mTORC1 signalling are concurrently stimulated following muscle contraction in humans. In an effort to determine whether mTORC1 signalling is essential for regulating muscle protein synthesis in humans, we treated subjects with a potent mTORC1 inhibitor (rapamycin) prior to performing a series of high-intensity muscle contractions. Here we show that rapamycin treatment blocks the early (1-2 h) acute contraction-induced increase (∼40%) in human muscle protein synthesis. In addition, several downstream components of the mTORC1 signalling pathway were also blunted or blocked by rapamycin. For instance, S6K1 phosphorylation (Thr421/Ser424) ...
Age-related muscle wasting (sarcopenia) is accompanied by a loss of strength which can compromise the functional abilities of the elderly. Muscle proteins are in a dynamic equilibrium between their respective rates of synthesis and breakdown. It has been suggested that age-related sarcopenia is due to: i) elevated basal-fasted rates of muscle protein breakdown, ii) a reduction in basal muscle protein synthesis (MPS), or iii) a combination of the two factors. However, basal rates of muscle protein synthesis and breakdown are unchanged with advancing healthy age. Instead, it appears that the muscles of the elderly are resistant to normally robust anabolic stimuli such as amino acids and resistance exercise. Ageing muscle is less sensitive to lower doses of amino acids than the young and may require higher quantities of protein to acutely stimulate equivalent muscle protein synthesis above rest and accrue muscle proteins. With regard to dietary protein recommendations, emerging evidence suggests ...
BACKGROUND. Systemic inflammation and muscle wasting are highly prevalent and coexist in patients on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD). We aimed to determine the effects of systemic inflammation on skeletal muscle protein metabolism in MHD patients. METHODS. Whole body and skeletal muscle protein turnover were assessed by stable isotope kinetic studies. We incorporated expressions of E1, E214K, E3αI, E3αII, MuRF-1, and atrogin-1 in skeletal muscle tissue from integrin β1 gene KO CKD mice models. RESULTS. Among 129 patients with mean (± SD) age 47 ± 12 years, 74% were African American, 73% were male, and 22% had diabetes mellitus. Median high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) concentration was 13 (interquartile range 0.8, 33) mg/l. There were statistically significant associations between hs-CRP and forearm skeletal muscle protein synthesis, degradation, and net forearm skeletal muscle protein balance (P , 0.001 for all). The associations remained statistically significant after ...
BACKGROUND: The progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass with aging is attributed to a disruption in the regulation of skeletal muscle protein turnover. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the effects on whole-body protein balance and mixed-muscle protein synthesis rates of the ingestion of carbohydrate with or without protein and free leucine after simulated activities of daily living. DESIGN: Eight elderly (75 +/- 1 y) and 8 young (20 +/- 1 y) lean men were randomly assigned to 2 crossover experiments in which they consumed either carbohydrate (CHO) or carbohydrate plus protein and free leucine (CHO+Pro+Leu) after performing 30 min of standardized activities of daily living. Primed, continuous infusions with L-[ring-13C6]phenylalanine and L-[ring-2H2]tyrosine were applied, and blood and muscle samples were collected to assess whole-body protein turnover and the protein fractional synthetic rate in the vastus lateralis muscle over a 6-h period. RESULTS: Whole-body phenylalanine and tyrosine flux were ...
An abundant supply of amino acids enhances the metabolic effect of exercise on muscle protein. Am. J. Physiol. 273 (Endocrinol. Metab. 36): El22-E129, 1997. -Six normal untrained men were studied during the intravenous infusion of a balanced amino acid mixture (-0.15 g. kg-l. h-l for 3 h) at rest and after a leg resistance exercise routine to test the influence of exercise on the regulation of muscle protein kinetics by hyperaminoacidemia. Leg muscle protein kinetics and transport of selected amino acids (alanine, phenylalanine, leucine, and lysine) were isotopically determined using a model based on arteriovenous blood samples and muscle biopsy. The intravenous amino acid infusion resulted in comparable increases in arterial amino acid concentrations at rest and after exercise, whereas leg blood flow was 64 +/- 5% greater after exercise than at rest. During hyperaminoacidemia, the increases in amino acid transport above basal were 30-100% greater after exercise than at rest. Increases in muscle ...
We have previously shown that non-specific blockade of the cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes in skeletal muscle eliminates the normal increase in muscle protein synthesis following resistance exercise. The current study tested the hypothesis that this COX-mediated increase in postexercise muscle protein synthesis is specifically regulated by the COX-2 isoform. Sixteen males (23 ± 1 yr, 177 ± 2 cm, 81.5 ± 3.4 kg) were randomly assigned to one of two groups that received three doses of either a specific COX-2 inhibitor (celecoxib; 200 mg per dose, 600 mg total) or a placebo during the 24 hours following a single bout of resistance exercise with the knee extensors. Skeletal muscle fractional synthesis rate (FSR) was measured at rest and 24 hours postexercise using a primed constant infusion of [2H5]phenylalanine coupled with muscle biopsies of the vastus lateralis. Mixed muscle FSR was increased following exercise to a greater extent (206%, P,0.05) in the COX-2 group (0.052 ± 0.014 %Ih) as compared ...
There were 2 primary goals of this work. The first was to develop a minimally invasive method for measuring integrated rates of skeletal muscle protein synthesis over a period of days to weeks based on a single blood measurement - i.e., without the need for a physical sample of the tissue. Muscle biopsies are not likely to be widely used in the clinical setting, so a blood test of muscle protein synthesis rates that could be monitored over time would be attractive for drug development, as well as clinical management of disorders of muscle, including sarcopenia and cachexia. Because changes in muscle protein synthesis rates have been shown to occur rapidly in response to anabolic therapies and to predict subsequent changes in muscle mass, strength, and performance (5, 8-10), the availability of a blood test for skeletal muscle protein synthesis rates would greatly simplify translational drug development and monitoring of treatment efficacy in this growing, unmet medical need.. We describe here an ...
It is thought that the production of muscle protein after a meal in response to consuming protein and/or amino acids is impaired in the elderly compared to the young. Also, consuming carbohydrates at the same time increases secretion of the hormone insulin and increases muscle protein production in the young. However, it is unclear how the elderly respond to the combined intake of protein and carbohydrates. Likewise, consuming the amino acid leucine may also increase muscle protein production. Adding carbohydrate or leucine to protein may represent effective strategies to overcome the impaired muscle protein production in the elderly. This study consists of three substudies. The aim of the first study is to determine if the response to combined protein and carbohydrate intake is different between young and elderly men. The aim of the second study is to investigate whether consuming carbohydrate as well increases muscle protein production in elderly men. The aim of the third study is to examine ...
Muscle protein breakdown (MPB) is an important metabolic component of muscle remodeling, adaptation to training, and increasing muscle mass. Degradation of muscle proteins occurs via the integration of three main systems-autophagy and the calpain and ubiquitin-proteasome systems. These systems do not operate independently, and the regulation is complex. Complete degradation of a protein requires some combination of the systems. Determination of MPB in humans is technically challenging, leading to a relative dearth of information. Available information on the dynamic response of MPB primarily comes from stable isotopic methods with expression and activity measures providing complementary information. It seems clear that resistance exercise increases MPB, but not as much as the increase in muscle protein synthesis. Both hyperaminoacidemia and hyperinsulinemia inhibit the post-exercise response of MPB. Available data do not allow a comprehensive examination of the mechanisms behind these responses. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Reduced synthesis of muscle proteins in chronic renal failure. AU - Adey, Deborah. AU - Kumar, Rajiv. AU - McCarthy, James T.. AU - Sreekumaran Nair, K.. PY - 2000/2. Y1 - 2000/2. N2 - Muscle wasting and weakness occur frequently in patients with chronic renal failure. The mechanism(s) by which these abnormalities occur is unclear. We hypothesized that such findings were due to defective muscle protein synthesis. We measured synthetic rates of mixed muscle proteins, myosin heavy chain, and mitochondrial proteins in serial muscle biopsy samples during a continuous infusion of L[1-13C] leucine from 12 patients with chronic renal failure and 10 healthy control subjects under identical study conditions. Patients with chronic renal failure have significantly lower synthetic rates of mixed muscle proteins and myosin heavy chain (27 and 37% reductions, respectively, P , 0.05 and P , 0.02). Significant declines in the synthetic rates of muscle mitochondrial protein (27%) (P , 0.05), ...
The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effects of training either once or three times/day on the principal stages of skeletal muscle. The experiments were carried out on male albino rats fed either 3 or 5 times/day a diet containing 20% protein. Experimental animals swam either once or 3 times/day, 6 days/week for 10 weeks with weights attached. The total duration of daily activity was equal for both groups and at 10 weeks each animal was swimming for 60 min/day with 3% of his body weight attached. All the animals were examined at rest after the 10-week training programs. The adequacy of the weight-loading and training schedules was estimated by body weight dynamics and such energy metabolites as creatine phosphate and glycogen. Skeletal muscle RNA and protein synthesis were studied by means of 14C-orotic acid and 14C-leucine incorporation, respectively. Quadriceps and gastrocnemius muscles were used for analysis in all experiments. It was found that the increase in the number of daily
Optimal muscle protein synthesis requires a pulsatile increase in branch-chain amino acids (particularly leucine) with or without concomitant pulses in insulin levels. Pancreatic substrate clamp studies have demonstrated that insulin and branch-chain amino acids independently increase muscle synthesis with the effects of both being additive [45, 46]. Animal data demonstrates that muscle protein synthesis following a meal is rapid (within 30 min) and sustained for about 2 h but then declines toward baseline in parallel with the postprandial changes in circulating insulin and amino acids [34, 47]. Bohe and colleagues measured the latency and duration of the stimulation of human muscle protein synthesis during a continuous infusion of amino acids [48]. The rate of muscle protein synthesis increased after 30 min and reached a peak at 2 h rapidly returning to basal levels by 4 h despite continuous amino acid availability. In healthy individuals at rest, muscle protein synthesis displays a saturable ...

It is well established that consuming protein and/or amino acids is necessary to stimulate post-exercise protein synthesis, thus creating a positive protein balance1-3. In accordance, dietary protein administration with or without carbohydrate ingestion before, during, and/or immediately after exercise has been shown to stimulate net muscle protein accretion during post-exercise recovery which is needed for the accrual of muscle mass.. Most of the research in this area examined the effect of food intake on the muscle protein synthesis response to exercise in an overnight fasted state2,4,5. It is reasonable to assume the limited availability of amino acids prevents a substantial rise in post-exercise muscle protein synthesis rate. This post-absorptive (fasted) condition differs from normal everyday practice in which sport activities are often performed in postprandial (after eating) conditions, such as in the evening. A study evaluated the efficacy of protein ingestion immediately after exercise ...

Many protein and amino acid supplements are touted as being able to maximize the gains achieved from resistance exercise by preventing muscle protein catabolism and stimulating anabolism. If effective, such supplements would be useful not only for athletes and for those trying to increase their fat free mass, but also for patients recovering from injuries or burns and for the prevention of aging-associated muscle loss. It has been shown that intravenous infusion or oral administration of complete mixtures of amino acids has a positive effect on muscle protein synthesis and net muscle anabolism following exercise. Since nonessential amino acids are synthesized by the body in response to resistance exercise, administration of essential amino acids only following exercise has the same positive anabolic effect on muscle as complete amino acid supplementation. Furthermore, oral administration of whole proteins following training has a similar anabolic effect, as whole proteins such as whey and casein ...

Sarcopenia is a well-known phenomenon in elderly individuals and resistance exercise together with sufficient amino acid (AA) availability has proved to be a counteractive implement. However, the source of AA and supplement timing require further investigation. The objective was to compare muscle protein synthesis (MPS) to intakes of whey and caseinate after heavy resistance exercise in healthy elderly individuals, and, furthermore, to compare the timing effect of caseinate intake. Twenty-four elderly men and women (mean ± SEM; 68 ± 1 years) were randomized to one of four groups: caseinate intake before exercise (CasPre), caseinate intake immediately after exercise (CasPost), whey intake immediately after exercise (Whey), or intake of a non-caloric control drink (Control). Muscle myofibrillar and collagen fractional synthesis rates (FSR) were measured by a primed continuous infusion of l-[1-13C]leucine using labeled proteins during a 6-h recovery period. No differences were observed in muscle ...
I think its fair to say that there are very few players who are not actively looking to increase their muscle mass or improve their body composition. Research suggests that additional muscle mass can improve the predicted success in some team sports such as rugby1. Building muscle is a multi-faceted approach and the following 3 tips will help you maximise those gains and improve performance.. Tip #1 - Engage in resistance training. Resistance Training (RT) is the single most important factor in building muscle. During RT muscle fibres are broken down and muscle protein synthesis (MPS) is increased. However, although MPS is increased, supporting nutrition in the form of protein is needed in order to ensure MPS is greater than muscle protein breakdown (MPB) and muscle grows. There is no change in muscle growth after one RT session but instead muscle hypertrophy is due to the accumulation of muscle protein in response to each individual bout of RT training plus protein that occurs ...

Background & aim: Protein-energy supplementation is routinely employed to combat muscle loss. However, success is often compromised by increased satiety, poor palatability, high costs and low compliance. Methods: For 2-weeks we supplemented meals of older individuals with leucine (4 g/meal; 3 meals/day; days 2-14). Metabolic studies were performed prior to (Day 1) and following (Day 15) supplementation. Leucine was not provided on metabolic study days. Venous blood and vastus lateralis muscle biopsies were obtained during a primed constant infusion of L-[ring-C-13(6)] phenylalanine. Mixed muscle fractional synthesis rate (FSR), body composition and markers of nutrient signaling (mTOR, 4E-BP1 and p70S6K1 phosphorylation) were measured before and after a low protein/carbohydrate simulated meal. Results: The meal modestly increased FR on Day 1 (postabsorptive: 0.063 +/- 0.004 vs. postprandial: 0.075 +/- 0.006%/h; p = 0.03), however, two weeks of leucine supplementation increased postabsorptive FSR (p = 0

Results: The preexercise rise in plasma AA concentration with PULSE was attenuated compared with BOLUS (P less than 0.05); this effect was reversed after exercise, with two-fold greater leucine concentrations in PULSE compared ...
LEUCINE IS THE TRIGGER!!!. New scientific studies show that Leucine is a powerful nutritional activator of muscle protein synthesis*. It activates the anabolic pathway for building muscle.. These new findings confirm that within the context of a mixed macronutrient intake, suboptimal protein doses can be made more effective in stimulating myofibrillar protein synthesis, through the addition of a high proportion of free Leucine.. This branched chained amino acid is essential for achieving a positive nitrogen balance in building lean muscle mass. Leucine is discribed as the trigger of muscle protein synthesis.. * Muscle protein synthesis (MPS) is the rebuilding of muscle tissue and it occurs as a result of the stresses that we place on our body, whether it is to repair injury (such as a muscle tear) or because we intentionally try to damage it (microtrauma from training).. ...
It turns out that only slight elevations of insulin above basal levels are all thats required to blunt muscle catabolic effects. Just consuming protein alone is enough to elicit a release of insulin that is sufficient to interact with the ingested amino acids in promoting muscle protein synthesis. Leucine alone is known to promote the release of insulin. This explains the recent studies showing that protein alone is enough to boost muscle protein synthesis following training. Indeed, one study showed that boosting insulin levels 30-times above fasting level did not further boost muscle protein synthesis if blood levels of amino acids were high. Just consuming protein alone, especially whey, which is rich in leucine, is enough to boost insulin levels 2-3-fold above resting levels. This level of insulin alone is enough to provide the anti-catabolic effects of insulin following exercise. Other studies show that adding 30 or 90 grams of carbs to 20 grams of protein does not boost muscle protein ...

Muscle bulk and strength naturally decline with age, as the tissues regenerate more slowly. Without efforts to stay strong and healthy, this can accelerate into sarcopenia, a prevalent, muscle wasting condition with multiple dire health outcomes.. Poor wound healing, increased risk of falls, hospitalisation, loss of independence and mortality are just some of the ripple effects caused by declining muscle mass.. Its well known that protein is important for helping to maintain muscle mass, with evidence that older adults benefit from 1g protein per kilogram of body weight per day - which is higher than current recommendations of 0.8g/kg body weight.. Some researchers say the focus should be on consuming 25-30g protein per meal for optimum muscle protein synthesis.. In older adults, however, muscle protein synthesis is less efficient if protein and carbohydrates are eaten together. The researchers suggest this could be improved by supplementing mixed-nutrient meals with leucine.. The importance of ...

Actual physical performance will depend on numerous muscle mass functions, including toughness. Muscle mass protein synthesis and breakdown are central in determining the two power and General operate. Even so, most research in the area of muscle operate and physical exercise has focused on energy metabolism in lieu of the regulation of muscle mass protein metabolism. Essential thoughts continue to be unanswered regarding the mechanisms governing the response of muscle protein synthesis and breakdown to training, and the result of exercising on protein specifications in individuals continues to be controversial. Methodologic troubles have confined the exploration of these along with other troubles about muscle mass protein kinetics due to best whey protein at amazing prices problem of quantifying muscle mass protein synthesis and breakdown in people. In lieu of direct measurement of protein kinetics, the result of protein ingestion on effectiveness variables including energy continues to be ...

So, it would make sense that eating barbaric amounts of protein will lead to colossal gains, right? Well, not really. Countless studies have shown that the law of diminishing returns applies to protein intake and muscle building. Researchers at the University of Stirling have discovered that muscle protein synthesis is maximally stimulated when 20 - 40g of a highly bioavailable protein source such as whey or meat is consumed after training (this range is dependent on the amount of lean body mass that is stimulated by resistance exercise). The remainder of the protein consumed was either used in non-muscle tissue protein synthesis or processed by the liver to make glucose or fatty acids - not to generate more skeletal muscle. Research has confirmed that to build muscle mass, a minimum of 1.6g/kg/d is required in healthy non-dieting adults. Protein intake above this, may be used for different purposes.. ...
1. Quadriceps muscle protein turnover was assessed in the post-absorptive state in six men immediately after the end of unilateral leg immobilization (37 ± 4 days) in a plaster cast after tibial fracture. A primed-constant intravenous infusion of l-[1-13C]leucine was administered over 7 h. Quadriceps needle biopsies, taken bilaterally at the end of the infusion, were analysed for muscle protein leucine enrichment with 13C.. 2. Quadriceps muscle protein synthetic rate, calculated from the fractional incorporation of [13C]leucine into protein compared with the average enrichment of blood α-ketoisocaproate, was 0.046 ±0.012%/h in the uninjured leg, but was only 0.034 ±0.007%/h in the quadriceps of the previously fractured leg (P , 0.05, means ± sd).. 3. Muscle RNA activity (i.e. protein synthetic rate per RNA) fell from 0.27 ±0.08 μg of protein synthesized h−1 μg−1 of RNA in the control leg to 0.14 ±0.03 μg of protein synthesized h−1 μg−1 of RNA in the immobilized leg (P , ...

Strenuous exercise following overnight fasting increases fat oxidation during exercise, which can modulate training adaptation. However, such exercise induces muscle protein catabolism by decreasing blood insulin concentrations and increasing amino acid oxidation during the exercise. Leucine-enriched essential amino acids (LEAAs) enhance muscle protein synthesis (MPS) at rest and after exercise. However, it remains to be clarified if the co-ingestion of carbohydrate with LEAAs induces an additional increase in MPS, particularly in a hypoinsulinemic state induced by strenuous exercise. Eight-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were made to perform strenuous jump exercise (height 35 cm, 200 jumps, 3-s intervals), after which they ingested distilled water and 1 g/kg LEAAs with or without 1 g/kg of glucose. The fractional synthesis rate was determined by measuring the incorporation of l-[ring-2H5]-phenylalanine into skeletal muscle protein. Immediately after the exercise, plasma insulin concentration was

Due to insufficient exercise training, skeletal mucle loss is beginning form 25 years old. Sarcopenia is the critical reason to effect activities of daily life in seniors. Strength training has been proven to be a great strategy to increase mucle mass and functions. Exercise training provokes skeletal muscle protein synthesis, in the meantime also causes muscle injury, induces muscle protien degradation and muscle cell inflammatory. Net muscle protein balace will become negative in nutrients or rest deficiency. Muscle biogenesis decreasing with aging may induce by signal transmit weakening in muscle protein synthesis pathway. Current studies showed that the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase /AKT/mammalian target of rapamycin (PI3K/Akt/ mTOR) pathway is an important pathway to regulate skeletal muscle hypertrophy. Therefore, the first year, resveratrol is uesd as a nutriental ergogenic aid which may activate related protein expression of muscle synthesis pathway. In order to understand promotion or ...

Rationale: The giant protein titin plays key roles in myofilament assembly and determines the passive mechanical properties of the sarcomere. The cardiac titin molecule has 2 mayor elastic elements, the N2B and the PEVK region. Both have been suggested to determine the elastic properties of the heart with loss of function data only available for the N2B region.. Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of titins proline-glutamate-valine-lysine (PEVK) region to biomechanics and growth of the heart.. Methods and Results: We removed a portion of the PEVK segment (exons 219 to 225; 282 aa) that corresponds to the PEVK element of N2B titin, the main cardiac titin isoform. Adult homozygous PEVK knockout (KO) mice developed diastolic dysfunction, as determined by pressure-volume loops, echocardiography, isolated heart experiments, and muscle mechanics. Immunoelectron microscopy revealed increased strain of the N2B element, a spring region retained in the PEVK-KO. ...
1. We have used l-[1-13C,15N]leucine as the substrate tracer to study leucine and muscle protein metabolism across the forearm of eight normal fasting adults.. 2. The rates of protein synthesis and breakdown, de- and re-amination of leucine, and the oxidative de-carboxylation of its keto acid were calculated directly from the arteriovenous metabolite balances and isotope dilutions as described by the metabolic model.. 3. The results were compared with those obtained previously when subjects were fed. The effects of fasting on protein and leucine metabolism were a significant decrease in protein synthesis from 127 (sem 11; n = 6) to 70 (sem 6; n = 12) nmol of leucine min−-1 100 ml−-1 of forearm tissue (P , 0.001) and a marked decrease in leucine catabolism in the forearm muscle.. 4. This model has demonstrated that each subject was in negative protein balance across the forearm during fasting while positive during feeding, the mean values being −29(sem 5; n = 12) and + 39(sem 9; n = 6) nmol ...
The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) agonist rosiglitazone (Rosi) appears to provide protection against organ dysfunction during endotoxaemia. We examined the potential benefits of Rosi on skeletal muscle protein maintenance and carbohydrate metabolism during lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced endotoxaemia. Sprague-Dawley rats were fed either standard chow (control) or standard chow containing Rosi (8.5±0.1 for two weeks before and during 24 h continuous intravenous infusion of LPS (15 μ or saline. Rosi blunted LPS-induced increases in muscle tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) mRNA by 70% (P,0.05) and 64% (P,0.01), respectively. Furthermore, Rosi suppressed the LPS-induced reduction in phosphorylated AKT and phosphorylated Forkhead box O (FOXO) 1 protein, as well as the upregulation of muscle RING finger 1 (MuRF1; P,0.01) mRNA, and the LPS-induced increase in 20S proteasome activity (P,0.05). Accordingly, LPS reduced the ...

The active and passive contractile performance of skeletal muscle fibers largely depends on the myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform and the stiffness of the titin spring, respectively. Open questions concern the relationship between titin-based stiffness and active contractile parameters, and titins importance for total passive muscle stiffness. Here, a large set of adult rabbit muscles (n = 37) was studied for titin size diversity, passive mechanical properties, and possible correlations with the fiber/MHC composition. Titin isoform analyses showed sizes between ∼3300 and 3700 kD; 31 muscles contained a single isoform, six muscles coexpressed two isoforms, including the psoas, where individual fibers expressed similar isoform ratios of 30:70 (3.4:3.3 MD). Gel electrophoresis and Western blotting of two other giant muscle proteins, nebulin and obscurin, demonstrated muscle type-dependent size differences of ≤70 kD. Single fiber and single myofibril mechanics performed on a subset of muscles ...
Insulin stimulates muscle protein synthesis when the levels of total amino acids, or at least the essential amino acids, are at or above their postabsorptive concentrations. Among the essential amino acids, branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) have the primarily role in stimulating muscle protein synthesis, and are commonly sought alone to stimulate muscle protein synthesis in humans. Fourteen healthy, young subjects were studied before and after insulin infusion to examine whether insulin stimulates muscle protein synthesis in relation to the availability of BCAA alone. Half of the subjects were studied in the presence of postabsorptive BCAA concentrations (Control), while the other half in the presence of increased plasma BCAA (BCAA). When compared to that prior to the initiation of the insulin infusion, fractional synthesis rate of muscle protein (%/hour) did not change (P , 0 .05) during insulin in either the Control (0.04 ± 0.01 vs 0.05 ± 0.01) or the BCAA (0.05 ± 0.02 vs 0.05 ± 0.01) ...
If youre a serious student of muscle, you may have heard of the mTOR pathway. Well, mTORC1 includes not only mTOR, but also several additional processes that stimulate muscle protein synthesis.. The mTORC1 pathway controls the anabolic and catabolic signaling of skeletal muscle mass, regulating muscle growth and muscle breakdown. And research has shown that supplementing essential amino acids in conjunction with resistance training has an additive effect on stimulating muscle protein synthesis through this pathway compared to just resistance training.. The translation for you: Essential amino acids can help maximize the hard work we put in at the gym to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. If youre stimulating muscle protein synthesis you put yourself in a favorable position to gain muscle or at least not break down your existing muscle..

The use of ambient desorption electrospray ionization (DESI-MS) mass spectrometry and liquid extraction surface analysis mass spectrometry (LESA-MS) is explored for the first time to analyse skeletal muscle proteins obtained from mixture of standard proteins and raw meat. Single proteins and mixtures of up to five proteins (myoglobin, troponin C, actin, BSA, tropomyosin) were deposited onto a polymer surface, followed by in-situ tryptic digestion and comparative analysis using DESI-MS and LESA-MS using tandem electrospray MS. Peptide peaks specific to individual proteins were readily distinguishable with good signal-to-noise ratio in the five-component mixture. LESA-MS gave a more stable analysis and greater sensitivity compared with DESI-MS. Meat tryptic digests were subjected to peptidomics analysis by DESI-MS and LESA-MS. Bovine, horse, pig, chicken and turkey muscle digests were clearly discriminated using multivariate data analysis (MVA) of the peptidomic datasets. The most abundant ...

Advancing age is associated with a reduction in skeletal muscle protein, muscle strength, muscle quality, and chemical modifications that may impair protein function. Sarcopenia has been coupled with physical disability, frailty, and a loss of independent function (5, 19). Using stable isotope tracer methodologies and mass spectrometric detection, we observed: (a) 76-92-year-old physically frail and 62-74-year-old middle-age adults have lower mixed muscle protein synthetic rates than 20-32-year-old men and women; (b) 2 weeks and 3 months of weightlifting exercise increased the synthetic rate of myosin heavy chain (MHC) and mixed muscle proteins to a similar magnitude in frail, middle-age, and young women and men; (c) Serum myostatin-immunoreactive protein levels were elevated in physically frail women and were inversely correlated with lean mass. This suggests that the protein synthetic machinery adapts rapidly to increased contractile activity and that the adaptive response(s) are maintained ...

NutraBio HMB is a clinically proven ergogenic aid that has been shown in over 50 human studies to improve strength and power gains, increase lean mass, and aid recovery. HMB (short for beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) in an active metabolite of leucine that has both anticatabolic and anabolic properties. Due to these attributes HMB reduces muscle protein breakdown while also inducing muscle protein synthesis. This means HMB can lead to rapid strength gains in less time, significantly increase lean muscle mass, support more complete muscle recovery, and reduce muscle damage from resistance exercise. In fact, a recent position stand by the International Society of Sports Nutrition validates these claims. Based upon the comprehensive review of the HMB literature they concluded that HMB enhances muscle recovery by attenuating muscle damage; HMB increases muscle hypertrophy, strength, and power in trained and untrained populations when the appropriate exercise protocol is applied; HMB efficacy is ...
To find the optimal level of protein intake at a meal we must determine what the optimal level of protein at a meal for stimulating muscle protein synthesis is. It appears that maximizing skeletal muscle protein synthesis requires approximately ~15g of essential amino acids. It has been postulated that the amino acid leucine is responsible for the stimulatory effect of dietary protein on protein synthesis and 15g of essential amino acids would contain 3.2g of leucine. Thus, in order to determine how much protein from a specific source is required to elicit the maximal response it may be useful to also calculate how much leucine is contained in the source. One could then determine how much of the source must be consumed in order to reach the leucine threshold. For example, whey protein is approximately 12% leucine; therefore, about 27g of whey protein would need to be consumed to reach the threshold for maximal anabolism, whereas a source like chicken, which has a protein content of about 7.5% ...
We determined myofibrillar and mitochondrial protein fractional synthesis rates (FSR), intramuscular signaling protein phosphorylation, and mRNA expression responses after isolated bouts of resistance exercise (RE), aerobic exercise (AE), or in combination [termed concurrent exercise (CE)] in sedentary middle-aged men. Eight subjects (age = 53.3 ± 1.8 yr; body mass index = 29.4 ± 1.4 kg·m2) randomly completed 8 × 8 leg extension repetitions at 70% of one repetition-maximum, 40 min of cycling at 55% peak aerobic power output (AE), or (consecutively) 50% of the RE and AE trials (CE). Biopsies were obtained (during a primed, constant infusion of l-[ring-13C6]phenylalanine) while fasted, and at 1 and 4 h following postexercise ingestion of 20 g of protein. All trials increased mitochondrial FSR above fasted rates (RE = 1.3-fold; AE = 1.5; CE = 1.4; P , 0.05), although only CE (2.2) and RE (1.8) increased myofibrillar FSR (P , 0.05). At 1 h postexercise, phosphorylation of Akt on Ser473 (CE = ...

In this study, we aimed to further dissect the molecular components required for the coordinated organization of Z-line components into regular, hexagonal lattices. We took the approach of searching for protein interactions that anchor the COOH-terminal region of nebulin within the sarcomere. This allowed us to identify the specific binding of the nebulin modules M160-M183, from the peripheral (I-band side) region of the Z-line (Millevoi et al. 1998), with the intermediate filament protein, desmin. Studies are currently under investigation to determine whether desmin and nebulin indeed participate in a coordinated cytoskeletal network that could provide lateral linkages in the Z-line perimyofibrillar space, allowing for efficient force transmission and mechanochemical signaling.. This study has also led to the identification of a novel nebulin-binding protein, myopalladin, which we named based on its striking homology with the recently described ubiquitously expressed protein, palladin (Parast ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cardiac titin. T2 - A multifunctional giant. AU - Lewinter, Martin M.. AU - Granzier, Hendrikus Henk. PY - 2010/5/18. Y1 - 2010/5/18. N2 - Titin is responsible for the passive and restoring force of the cardiac sarcomere and makes a major contribution to the diastolic wall stress of the LV, the level of which can be tuned through differential splicing and phosphorylation. PKA and PKG phosphorylation lower stress, and PKC increases it. Changes in titin phosphorylation and titin splicing occur in cardiac disease, in addition to mutations in the titin gene. A host of titin-binding proteins have been discovered that implicate titin as a key player in the organization and development of the sarcomere, in protein turnover, and in sensing mechanical stress. Several stress-sensing signalosomes along the molecule have been discovered, of which only the FHL-based signalosome binds to a spring element (N2B).

BCAAs have been proposed to benefit performance in several ways including as a stimulant for muscle protein synthesis (through leucine). BCAAs may also prevent muscle protein breakdown and reduce markers of exercise induced muscle damage. There is also some research suggesting that BCCAs have the potential to act as a fuel source for muscles during exercise, although the research surrounding this is inconclusive. Lastly, BCAAs may interfere with the transport of tryptophan into the brain, reducing the synthesis of serotonin thereby reducing feelings of fatigue.. ...
PHILADELPHIA - Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have discovered that a protein called leiomodin (Lmod) promotes the assembly of an important heart muscle protein called actin. Whats more, Lmod directs the assembly of actin to form the pumping unit of the heart. The findings appear in this weeks issue of Science.. Very little was known about Lmod when we began this study, says lead author Roberto Dominguez, PhD, Associate Professor of Physiology. It appeared that this protein was present in muscle cells but this had not been demonstrated directly and nobody knew what it did, explains Dominguez. We compared the amino acid sequence of Lmod with the sequence of another protein called tropomodulin [Tmod] that was already known to bind actin filaments in muscle cells. We found that one part of Lmod was very similar to Tmod, but Lmod was a bigger protein than Tmod and contained unique features that made us suspect that it could assemble the actin filaments of the ...

Unfortunately, this study leaves us with way more questions than answers. I personally, for example would venture the guess that the ingestion of a complete EAA product would result in an even more profound amelioration of the fasting induced reduction in fractional protein synthesis. That being said, the latter could also compromise another advantage of the non-essential amino acids, I have not even mentioned, yet: their almost non-existent effect on intra-muscular AMPK-expression (cf. figure 2, right). If you read all Intermittent Thoughts articles which dealt with the AMPK/mTOR Metabolic Seesaw and the respective follow-ups, you will be familiar with notion that the fasting-induced phosphorylation of intra-muscular AMPK is responsible for the majority of the health, as well as the closely related fat-burning effects of (intermittent) fasting. Now, if the ingestion of a ~20g bolus of alanine, glycine, proline, histidine, asparagine and serine could increase your skeletal muscle protein ...

  • One of the downsides to getting older is that skeletal muscle loses its ability to heal after injury. (
  • We found that we were able to rescue, at least in part, the regenerative defect of aged skeletal muscle," said lead author Fabrisia Ambrosio, PhD , director of rehabilitation for UPMC International, associate professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Pitt, and core faculty at the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine. (
  • The daily menu of intense, energy-depleting training components such as lifting, running, and practicing, taxes the skeletal-muscle system way beyond the average sedentary Jane and Joe. (
  • A new study, however, suggests that one such target may actually lie in skeletal muscles. (
  • Skeletal muscle cells drive movement and shape our physique. (
  • Skeletal muscle cells are approximately fusiform, long and fiber-like. (
  • Another difference is in the cell nuclei: Smooth and cardiac muscle cells possess a single nucleus per cell, and skeletal muscle cells are multinucleated. (
  • There are about five nuclei per 100 microns of cell length in skeletal muscle (1). (
  • Specifically in skeletal muscle and to a lesser extent in cardiac muscle, the actin and myosin filaments are arranged in a linear manner that gives the muscle a striated or striped appearance. (
  • Skeletal muscle fibers are made up of a bundle of myofibrils. (
  • Grb10 regulates the development of fiber number in skeletal muscle. (
  • increasing skeletal muscle mass and strength compared to non-consumers [1]. (
  • 1. Cermak NM, Res PT, de Groot LC, Saris WH, van Loon LJ (2012) Protein supplementation augments the adaptive response of skeletal muscle to resistance-type exercise training: a meta-analysis. (
  • Redox proteins are constitutively secreted by skeletal muscle. (
  • Myokines are skeletal muscle-derived hormones. (
  • In this study, using a C2C12 myotube contraction system, we sought to determine whether the skeletal muscle secreted thioredoxin (TRX) and related redox proteins. (
  • We concluded that TRX-1 and related redox proteins are myokines that are constitutively secreted by the skeletal muscle cells. (
  • Although the mechanism of TRX-1 secretion remains unclear, our findings suggest that the skeletal muscle is an endocrine organ and the redox proteins that are constitutively secreted from the skeletal muscle may exert antioxidant and systemic health-promoting effects. (
  • Is the Subject Area "Skeletal muscles" applicable to this article? (
  • These proteins, which are rich in essential amino acids, help make whey protein useful in maintaining skeletal muscle. (
  • After creating a new mouse model of SBMA, they discovered that skeletal muscle was the site of mutant protein toxicity and that measures which mitigated the protein's influence in muscle suppressed symptoms of SBMA in treated mice, such as weight loss and progressive weakness, and increased survival. (
  • The purpose of this study was to examine the role skeletal muscle perfusion plays in mediating muscle protein synthesis in healthy older and younger individuals. (
  • The investigators hypothesized that normalization of muscle perfusion in older men and women via exercise or infusion of a vasodilator would enhance nutritive flow and skeletal muscle protein synthesis in the elderly similar to that of their younger counterparts. (
  • Skeletal muscle microvascular recruitment and flow were measured during the basal state and SNP+AA using contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEU). (
  • Three myosin heavy chain isoforms with different actin-activated Mg 2+ -ATPase activities were found in the fast skeletal muscle from carp ( Cyprinus carpio ) acclimated to 10 and 30°C. The composition of three types of myosin heavy chain was dependent on acclimation temperature, demonstrating the presence of temperature-specific myosin isoforms in carp. (
  • The anabolic effects of both whey protein and the BCAAs combined with exercise stimulates skeletal muscle gene expression. (
  • The sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) of skeletal muscle cells is a complex network of tubules and cisternae that share a common lumen delimited by a single continuous membrane. (
  • Accordingly, immunofluorescence staining of adult skeletal muscle sections has shown that most longitudinal SR proteins, including SERCA pumps and the inositol-trisphosphate receptors (InsP3R), are detected predominantly in correspondence with the Z disk and with a weaker signal over the M band ( 10 ). (
  • Moreover, we demonstrate that the larger isoforms of nesprin-1, like MSP-300, are localized to the sarcomeric Z-line of both skeletal and cardiac muscle. (
  • The recognition that a characteristic muscle-specific mutant phenotype in the fly results from a disruption of its nesprin ortholog reinforces the candidacy of the human proteins for involvement in genetic diseases of skeletal and cardiac muscle. (
  • Muscle proteins are grouped into three categories based on location in the skeletal muscle and solubility as sarcoplasmic, stromal, and myofibrillar proteins. (
  • Myofibrillar proteins are the main component of the skeletal muscle accounting for about 50% of total proteins and are mainly constituted by myosin and actin, involved in muscle contraction. (
  • 9 ] reported the use of water or low ionic strength media for the extraction and solubilization of myofibrillar proteins from skeletal muscle. (
  • On fasting, atrogin-1 mRNA levels increase specifically in skeletal muscle and before atrophy occurs. (
  • Smad2/3 Proteins Are Required for Immobilization-induced Skeletal Muscle Atrophy. (
  • Skeletal muscle atrophy promotes muscle weakness, limiting activities of daily living. (
  • Here, we show that skeletal muscle immobilization elevates Smad2/3 protein but not mRNA levels in muscle, promoting atrophy. (
  • Professor Douglas Paddon-Jones from the University of Texas' department for nutrition and metabolism told us that protein and leucine could be a practical and affordable solution for sarcopenia, the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass, quality and strength associated with ageing, injury or illness. (
  • Both proteins shared a common antigenic determinant with COOH-terminal segments of rabbit skeletal and bovine cardiac troponin T and bound to the immobilized smooth muscle tropomyosin. (
  • Both proteins interacted with rabbit skeletal troponin C in the presence and absence of Ca2+, but they did not interact with troponin I. These results suggest that the novel protein, which is designated calponin, may be a specialized component of smooth muscle thin filament involved in the regulation of contractile apparatus. (
  • In fact about 33% of all skeletal muscle is made up of combinations of the BCAA's, making it clear why they are important for building muscle. (
  • The insulin resistance of aging has been attributed to a postreceptor defect in skeletal muscle. (
  • The present study examined whether a reduction in the concentration of the insulin-stimulated glucose transporter (GLUT4) in skeletal muscle was associated with advancing age in men ( n = 55) and women ( n = 29). (
  • These findings suggest that a decrement in GLUT4 protein concentration in skeletal muscle may at least partially contribute to the insulin resistance of aging in humans. (
  • Activation of G protein-coupled receptors is involved in regulating many cellular responses, but less is known regarding the role of these receptors in the differentiation and maintenance of skeletal muscle. (
  • Gα i2 operates through multiple signaling pathways to stimulate maturation and growth of skeletal muscle fibers. (
  • The protein, ATF4, is a transcription factor that alters gene expression in skeletal muscle, causing reduction of muscle protein synthesis, strength, and mass. (
  • The UI study also identifies two natural compounds, one found in apples and one found in green tomatoes, which reduce ATF4 activity in aged skeletal muscle. (
  • Adams' team investigated the molecular effects of ursolic acid and tomatidine in aged skeletal muscle. (
  • This led them to engineer and study a new strain of mice that lack ATF4 in skeletal muscle. (
  • By reducing ATF4 activity, ursolic acid and tomatidine allow skeletal muscle to recover from effects of aging," says Adams, who also is a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center at the UI and a staff physician with the Iowa City Veterans Affairs Medical Center. (
  • They are classified as skeletal, cardiac, or smooth muscles. (
  • Voluntary contraction of the skeletal muscles is used to move the body and can be finely controlled. (
  • Bechtel, P. (1979) Identification of a high molecular weight actin-binding protein in skeletal muscle. (
  • While its specific function is still not completely understood, it has been shown that it is closely associated with myosin as it is present in all skeletal and cardiac muscle from the earliest stages of muscle tissue formation. (
  • SSN's Muscle Protein has been formulated in line with the latest research into muscle building nutritional technology, which indicates that mixed protein blends may be superior to single source proteins for post-workout protein synthesis. (
  • Hence, the effect of all four of these proteins combined, as in SSN's Muscle Protein, appears to provide an extended release of amino acids to muscles, which is conducive to optimal post-training protein synthesis and lean muscle gain. (
  • Supplementing low-protein beverages with leucine can produce the same level of muscle synthesis in young men as a beverage with five times the protein levels, says a new study. (
  • Consumption of leucine-enriched essential amino acid supplements during endurance exercise may enhance the synthesis of muscle protein by 33%, says a new study from the US Army. (
  • Protein from soy or from whey is equally effective for synthesis of muscle protein after endurance training, suggests an animal study that may challenge the perception that athletes should avoid soy if reproducible in humans. (
  • Buckle your seat belts and pull out your pocket protectors: We're going full nutrition-nerd today, talking about the role of dietary protein in maximizing muscle protein synthesis. (
  • I've got some great new information to share with you but first, let's back up and talk muscle protein synthesis. (
  • While human milk is the quintessential growth promoter, we found ways to improve on it for even greater muscle synthesis. (
  • Dietary protein increases post-exercise muscle protein synthesis rates and inhibits muscle protein breakdown, allowing enhanced muscle protein accretion during the post-exercise recovery period. (
  • The study's results, obtained by measuring muscle synthesis rates in volunteers who consumed different amounts of lean beef, show that only about the first 30 grams (just over one ounce) of dietary protein consumed in a meal actually produce muscle. (
  • We knew from previous work that consuming 30 grams of protein "" or the equivalent of approximately 4 ounces of chicken, fish, dairy, soy, or, in this case, lean beef "" increased the rate of muscle protein synthesis by 50 percent in young and older adults," said associate professor Douglas Paddon-Jones, senior author of a paper on the study published in the September issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. (
  • Using blood samples and thigh muscle biopsies, they then determined the subjects' muscle protein synthesis rates following each of the meals. (
  • In young and old adults, we saw that 12 ounces gave exactly the same increase in muscle protein synthesis as 4 ounces," Paddon-Jones says. (
  • This suggests that at around 30 grams of protein per meal, maybe a little less, muscle protein synthesis hits an upper ceiling. (
  • You don't have to eat massive amounts of protein to maximize muscle synthesis, you just have to be a little more clever with how you apportion it," Paddon-Jones said. (
  • These amino acids can then be reused in the synthesis of new proteins. (
  • The rate at which the body makes new muscle was assessed by determining the fractional synthesis rate (FSR). (
  • By determining how much of the special amino acid has accumulated over time in a muscle sample, the fractional synthesis rate can be determined. (
  • However, a steady state is achieved after 4 or 5 weeks, but not in starved individuals, suggesting that protein synthesis or the turnover of myofibrillar component(s) is involved in the response. (
  • The BCAA, especially leucine, have powerful anabolic effects on protein metabolism by increasing the rate of protein synthesis, decreasing the rate of protein degradation and promoting recovery. (
  • Muscle protein synthesis (MPS) is a complex process and involves transcriptional co-regulators, myogenic regulatory factors and the phosphorylation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). (
  • Muscle mTOR is the master controller of protein synthesis integrating signals from growth factors within the parameters of the energy and nutritional conditions of the cell. (
  • Muscle mTOR are muscle enzyme activators of protein synthesis and supported by whey protein and the BCAA, especially leucine and exercise. (
  • The positive effect of supplying whey proteins rich in the BCAA are mediated through signaling pathways controlling protein synthesis involves phosphorylation of the target enzymes mTOR and the sequential stimulation of p70 ribosomal S6 kinase (p70 S6K) through the regulation of mRNA translation and other cell growth-related responses. (
  • mTOR mTOR is a huge deal when it comes to triggering protein synthesis. (
  • According to the results of his study ​ published in the Journal of Nutrition ​back in January, the consumption of a moderate amount of high-quality protein three times a day for healthy adult men and women with an average age of 36.9 provided a more effective means of stimulating 24-hour muscle protein synthesis than the common practice of skewing protein intake toward the evening meal. (
  • New findings implicate the inhibitor subunit Gα i2 as a vital mediator of myofiber maturation and growth, operating through multiple signaling pathways to selectively stimulate protein synthesis or inhibit cytokine-dependent protein turnover. (
  • Muscle protein synthesis was 25 percent higher among participants who ate the diet with evenly distributed protein intake, compared with those who ate the diet with greater variation in protein intake, according to the study published online May 20 in the Journal of Nutrition . (
  • A wave of protein synthesis begins in the muscles in the hours after exercising. (
  • The amino acids will trigger protein synthesis and allow for the repair of the muscle fibres. (
  • This reduced amount of fillers allows for a faster protein absorption which is absolutely indispensable to trigger protein synthesis, the process by which the body repairs the damaged muscle fibres. (
  • Each serving of IntraPro™ provides the body with the highest levels of Branched Chain Amino Acids, Essential Amino Acids, and Non-Essential Amino Acids to help support lean & dense muscle via enhanced protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. (
  • The protein shakes that health supplement stores sell, which people sometimes buy as a dietary aid to build muscle mass, may not actually be safe for health in the long run according to a new study in mice. (
  • Because, let's face it, everyone and their mother drinks protein shakes these days. (
  • Some people have complained that protein shakes have made then bulk out too much in terms of fat. (
  • Also I have noticed that people who drink protein shakes every day tend to be on the heavier but fatter side. (
  • Is it Better to Drink Milk in Protein Shakes? (
  • Participants who boosted their protein intake - whether from foods or from supplements like bars, powders and shakes - added more lean muscle mass and got stronger muscles than exercisers who didn't add extra protein to their diets. (

  • Muscle contraction and many other movement processes are controlled by the interplay between myosin and actin filaments. (
  • Two further proteins, tropomyosin and troponin, regulate how myosin binds to actin. (
  • The basic functional unit of a muscle, known as the sarcomere, consists of actin, myosin and tropomyosin proteins. (
  • If a muscle is to be able to contract, the myosin must slide along filamentous actin molecules. (
  • Working together with troponin, tropomyosin regulates muscle contraction by controlling when myosin binds to actin. (
  • Comparisons with myosin structures in other states have allowed the researchers to describe the interplay of myosin and actin during muscle contraction. (
  • Actin, myosin, and tropomyosin (at least, the presence of other muscle proteins in these organisms has not been examined) exist in muscle-like cells in Radiata, and almost all muscle proteins are present across Bilateria, implying that the first Bilaterian had a complete, or near-complete, complement of present-day muscle proteins. (
  • At the heart of these micro-motors are two contractile proteins called actin and myosin. (
  • This results from the physical structures of myosin, a very large and thick protein with a globular end, and actin, a thinner more linear protein. (
  • Myosin is a dimer, formed of two individual myosin proteins bound together. (
  • Myosin is held in place by titin (another specialized protein). (
  • This article shows that one of the myofibrillar proteins responsible for changes in muscle plasticity in association with temperature acclimation of carp is myosin, a major protein in the contractile apparatus. (

  • The smallest components of muscle fibers are the actin and myosin protein microfilaments. (
  • The sliding filament theory suggests that actin and myosin overlap, and that when they receive the signal from the central nervous system to contract, they slide across one another to create a force-producing, muscle-shortening action. (
  • Mechanical overload refers to the structural damage that occurs to the actin-myosin protein filaments as a result of strenuous exercise like weightlifting or explosive plyometrics. (
  • These proteins are thought to be involved in anchoring the thick filaments of the sarcomere (myosin) to other filaments, namely titin, stabilizing and aligning the structure. (
  • A research study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association produced a report by the Board of the Institute of Medicine to determine optimal intake of the macronutrients protein, carbohydrates, and fats. (
  • The RDA for protein was based on the results of all available studies that estimated the minimum protein intake required to avoid progressive loss of lean body mass as reflected by nitrogen balance. (
  • The Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR) of protein was noted to be between 10% and 35% of the daily energy intake (DRI). (
  • This discussion is relevant to nutrition policy only if there is evidence the optimal level of protein intake differs from the minimal requirement. (
  • These points notwithstanding, there is ample evidence the optimal level of protein intake is greater than the RDA. (
  • It was concluded there was no evidence documenting an upper level of protein intake beyond which adverse effects would ensue. (
  • Regarding protein intake, they determined the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for those 18 years of age and older was 0.8 g of protein per kilogram body weight per day. (
  • The wide range recommended in the AMDR (10%-35% of energy intake) implies uncertainty regarding the exact optimal level of protein intake. (
  • A variety of studies have shown levels of protein intake above the RDA benefiting muscle mass, strength, bone health, maintenance of energy balance, cardiovascular function, and wound healing. (
  • Close examination of these and related research studies should enable a reasonable estimation of the optimal level of protein intake in a variety of circumstances. (
  • By scheduling your protein intake through protein cycling, however, you will be able to make sure that all of that vital protein that you are shoveling into your system will be used for muscle growth. (
  • Protein cycling can take any number of forms, but it essentially involves varying protein intake systematically to help counteract any loss of protein that would occur when protein intake is reduced. (
  • During the recovery period you gradually reduce your protein intake back to your baseline level of one gram per pound of bodyweight. (
  • As you are cutting back on proteins during this two-week period, you should up your levels of carbohydrate and healthy fat intake. (
  • Or you decided to really jack up your protein intake by adding an extra three eggs to your morning omelet and another two chicken breasts to both lunch and dinner. (
  • Even though body builders use it, it doesn't necessarily mean that a simple intake of protein alone will build muscle mass. (
  • Too much protein intake while not exercising can result in general body mass gain (mainly unwanted fat and general bulk). (
  • Eggs contain a lot of protein however due to the high amount of cholesterol this type of protein intake needs to regulated for health reasons. (
  • In fact, medical research shows that consuming too much protein -- more than 30% of your total daily caloric intake -- could actually harm your body, says protein expert Gail Butterfield, PhD, RD, director of Nutrition Studies at the Palo Alto Veterans' Administration Medical Center and nutrition lecturer at Stanford University. (
  • Eating more protein and increasing total caloric intake while maintaining the same exercise level will build an equal amount of additional fat and muscle mass, according to a study published in 1992 in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. (
  • She says that's because a diet in which protein makes up more than 30% of your caloric intake causes a buildup of toxic ketones. (
  • The amount of protein you require depends on your weight and your daily caloric intake. (
  • Protein should also make up approximately 15% of your total daily caloric intake, also according to the RDA. (
  • Although limiting protein intake is important, you should also realize that protein is essential to our bodies' normal functions. (
  • It's well established that a sufficient protein intake is necessary to see the full extent of benefits from a resistance training programme. (
  • A more efficient eating strategy for making muscle and controlling total caloric intake would be to shift some of extra protein consumed at dinner to lunch and breakfast. (
  • However, in the UK roughly a third of total protein consumption comes from meat products - and increasing meat intake may have serious consequences for public health and for the environment. (
  • Since the body uses protein most effectively when you have it at regular intervals, divide your daily intake into four equal amounts for breakfast, lunch, a snack and dinner. (
  • You might be familiar with calorie counting, but it's also important to know how to tally your protein intake. (
  • Denervation-induced muscle atrophy was accompanied by reduced glucose intake and elevated levels of branched-chain amino acids, effects that were Smad2/3-dependent. (
  • Researchers in the UK compared high versus moderate protein intake on recovery after strength training in resistance-trained individuals. (
  • They found that, for recovery, more protein isn't necessarily better, hinting that there may be a benefit to studying lower protein intake in the future. (
  • The researchers wanted to investigate an age-old question in sports nutrition-what matters most when it comes to protein supplementation for faster post-workout recovery, intake amount of protein or timing of supplementation? (
  • What previous studies on protein for post-workout recovery have not yet done, according to the researchers, is control the total energy intake and protein supplementation timing around a workout. (
  • Thus, among the 14 study participants recruited, each were randomly assigned to a 10-day matched calorie period of either moderate protein intake (at 1.8 g per kilogram body weight per day) or high protein intake (2.9 g per kilogram body weight per day). (
  • Though there was not much variance between the two protein intake amounts for upper body performance and perceived muscle soreness, the researchers found that, when on the high protein diet, lower body performance was "significantly" better. (
  • The researchers found that performance for bench press and the bent-over row did not vary significantly based on protein intake, "indicating that moderate protein intake may be sufficient for resistance trained individuals," ​the researchers argued. (
  • In the United States, about 15 percent of our total caloric intake is from protein. (
  • Scientific perspective on protein requirements has changed little for several decades, and there is no evidence of widespread problems involving protein intake. (
  • Subjects in the placebo group will consume 2 scoops of the same supplement but without protein or amino acids (with carbohydrate added to keep energy intake the same between groups). (
  • Some nutritionists recommend that an intake of 1.5 - 2g of protein per pound of body weight is sufficient for a health individual wanting to build muscle to their frame. (
  • Their study included healthy adults who ate similar diets that distributed a total of 90 grams of protein intake differently throughout the day. (

  • Qin, who wasn't involved in the current review, has studied the effect of milk protein supplementation among older adults taking part in a resistance training program. (
  • But here's the question: for a healthy individual already achieving relatively high protein intakes from diet alone, say in excess of 90-100 grams/day (the British Dietetic Association recommends levels of 55 grams a day), is there any merit in advocating additional supplementation? (
  • Whereas some studies report greater gains in fat-free mass, muscle fibre size, and/or muscle strength from protein supplementation during resistance training regimes, many others have failed to observe any benefit. (
  • Examined individually, every study failed to observe a significant benefit on fat free mass gain from protein supplementation. (

  • As we have seen, there are lots of reasons as to why beef protein powders are great options for all of those looking to gain muscle mass. (
  • When added to the high biological value protein content and the free sugar and cholesterol content, it's easy to understand beef protein powders' growing popularity. (
  • Post-workout is the important window of opportunity where you want to consume whey protein again to rush the nutrients to your muscles so they can recover and grow. (
  • Because it's harder to get a good balance of amino acids with a vegan diet than an omnivorous one, and because plant-based protein sources are sometimes less digestible, some guidelines recommend that vegan athletes aim for a slightly higher total amount of protein than omnivores, just to be sure you're covering all your needs. (
  • The amount of muscle you build is dependent on the amount of protein you take in at that meal. (

  • Again, leucine turn on the anabolic machinery protein syntheis process. (
  • Different proteins contain different precentages of leucine. (
  • That means to get the right amount of leucine you may need to eat more of one protein source while you can eat less of another. (
  • Consuming protein with higher leucine content means you can eat less. (
  • However, leucine is very expensive compared to other proteins, about 10 times per gram. (
  • In both protein and BCAAs it's the leucine you're actually paying for, the rest is along for the ride. (
  • He said it seemed that leucine, a building block for protein, could have a "protective effect" ​ against muscle loss, although the results of this experiment were yet to be published. (
  • In this respect these findings could signal that leucine and protein assumptions applied only to populations where there was some kind of 'deficiency' or clinical need. (
  • Isoleucine, just like leucine, builds and repairs muscle, skin and bone tissue and is needed for the creation of HGH. (
  • While it might be great for building muscle, for example, high levels of circulating leucine are also present in people at risk from diabetes. (

  • One diet provided 30 grams of protein at each meal, while the other provided 10 grams at breakfast, 15 grams at lunch and 65 grams at dinner. (
  • Anything more than about 50 grams of protein per meal is worthless since your body has a hard time assimilating more than this at one sitting. (
  • Include a lean protein source at every meal. (
  • If you want to make outstanding muscle building progress, you must put together a solid weight training program , train with a high level of intensity , add poundage to your exercises as often as possible, eat six high protein meals every day, and make sure you are out of the gym often enough to recover from your workouts so that your muscles have time to grow. (
  • You improve by taking hard workouts so your muscles can grow and heal while you recover on your easy days. (
  • You can also take casein protein during the day for a rich source of slow acting protein but avoid drinking it immediately before or after your workouts since its not the ideal protein source for this time. (
  • The human heart is the body's most important muscle and, if it is working at less than its best, the outcome can be fatal. (
  • As such, Ubiquitin contributes to a very sustainable circulation of the body's proteins. (
  • After training should also try to take whey protein along with some carbohydrates to repair muscle cells after they have been damaged during training. (
  • So think twice when you consider sacrificing the carbohydrates for a protein-dominant diet, Butterfield says. (
  • In a previous interview, registered dietitian Jim White told POPSUGAR to start with a macronutrient split of approximately 55 percent carbohydrates, 25 percent protein, and 20 percent fat to build muscle. (
  • While the primary role of protein is to repair damaged tissues, it can also be used to produce energy for muscle contractions when other sources of adenosine triphosphate (ATP, the cellular form of energy), namely fats and carbohydrates, are not available. (
  • This doesn't even take 2 minutes to prepare and packs a lot of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. (
  • Over the past gazillion years, it has been one of the most beat-to-death questions: How much protein do I need to build muscle? (
  • Can it help a person to build muscle, lower cholesterol, or burn fat? (
  • The body can only assimilate so much protein on a daily basis and you can only build muscle so fast. (
  • And if that's all it took to build muscle there would be a lot more huge dudes walking around. (
  • Most people will need about .7 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight per day to build muscle. (
  • But plant foods can provide protein as well, and there are plenty of strong vegan athletes-so it's definitely possible to build muscle on a plant-based diet. (
  • So if you want to build muscle on plant foods, you'll have to work a little harder than an omnivore to get all your protein in without going over your calorie target. (
  • Bottom line, you can build muscle on plant proteins, but you'll have to put a little more thought into planning out your diet to make sure you get enough. (
  • Does protein build muscle? (
  • To answer the question "Does protein build muscle mass? (
  • There are different types of protein to build muscle mass. (

  • To determine a reasonable estimate of your daily protein needs, use this calculator that factors in your age, height, weight, activity level, and training goals. (
  • A protein deficiency is defined as eating 50% to 75% of the recommended amount of daily protein, Butterfield explains. (
  • However, increasing daily protein consumption beyond more than 1.6 grams for every kilogram (2.2 pounds) of body weight didn't appear to have any added benefit. (

  • In contrast, the small muscle-specific isoform of ankyrin 1 (ank1.5), a transmembrane protein of the longitudinal SR known to interact with the myofibrillar protein obscurin, is preferentially localized near the M band and, to a lesser extent, to the Z disk ( 11 - 16 ). (
  • The most commonly used procedures for myofibrillar protein extraction involves denaturing solutions containing urea, thiourea, reducing agents (DTT, beta-mercaptoethanol), detergents (SDS, sodium dodecyl sulfate), and salts [ 7 , 8 ]. (
  • Every cell and drop of our blood contains many thousands of different types of proteins, and each of these proteins is built from the protein we eat. (
  • It's important to remember that there are many different types of proteins to choose from depending on your specific goals. (
  • In older people they are not all taken up again, so gradual muscles loss occurs. (
  • In mature muscle, utrophin expression occurs only in the neuromuscular and myotendinous junctions, the authors noted. (
  • In developing and regenerating muscle, utrophin expression occurs over the entire myofiber. (
  • A similar rapid atrophy of muscle is a common debilitating feature of many systemic diseases including diabetes, cancer, sepsis, hyperthyroidism, and uremia ( 2 , 3 ) and occurs in specific muscles upon disuse or nerve injury ( 4 , 5 ). (
  • Loss of muscle protein occurs primarily through enhanced protein breakdown because of activation of the ubiquitin (Ub)-proteasome pathway, as shown by inhibitor studies in intact muscles ( 6 ), increased content of Ub-protein conjugates, and by cell-free measurements of Ub-dependent proteolysis ( 7 , 8 ). (
  • In order to preserve vital bodily functions over night a catabolic state of breakdown occurs, attacking the muscles (amino acids) for energy. (
  • Cardiac and smooth muscle contraction occurs without conscious thought and is necessary for survival. (
  • However, when muscle damage occurs, Xin becomes detectable and shows a pattern that highly correlates with the amount of muscle damage. (
  • This has, for the first time, made it possible to correctly identify the location of proteins within the complex and to analyse the processes involved in muscle contraction. (
  • This is the first of a projected series of canonic reviews covering all invertebrate muscle literature prior to 2005 and covers muscle genes and proteins except those involved in excitation-contraction coupling (e.g., the ryanodine receptor) and those forming ligand- and voltage-dependent channels. (
  • The chemical interactions of the thick and thin filaments within the context of the related structural protein framework directly create muscle contraction. (
  • The CDC states that most Americans already get enough protein in the food they eat, so be careful when supplementing protein drinks. (
  • So we're not taking enough protein on board for efficient muscle-building during the day, and at night we're taking in more than we can use. (
  • So these guys were already getting enough [protein]. (
  • Eating enough protein every day is certainly important. (
  • We need enough protein on a daily basis to replace the inevitable losses in urine, sweat and in the continual sloughing off of cells from the skin and the digestive tract. (
  • In humans, ALS is a progressive, adult-onset neurodegenerative disorder characterized by selective motor neuron and muscle loss that ultimately results in fatal paralysis. (
  • Se-Jin Lee, a doctor and professor of molecular biology and genetics at Johns Hopkins University, discovered previously that the absence of myostatin leads to oversized muscles in mice and humans. (
  • Meat is usually considered the most protein-rich food, yet plants supply most of the protein consumed by humans globally. (
  • But worldwide, it is the protein found in plants that supplies at least 60 percent of the total protein consumed by humans. (
  • We humans need all 20 of the amino acids that make up proteins, but these differ between animal and plant foods. (
  • That's because they have been brainwashed to believe that without eating a billion grams of protein per day their muscles will shrink faster than their wang in a cold pool. (
  • So a 180 pound guy looking to gain size would need about 126 grams of protein per day. (
  • If you weigh 150 pounds, for example, eat between 75 and 112 grams of protein per day. (
  • This rich diversity suggests that studying invertebrate muscle proteins and genes can be usefully applied to resolve phylogenetic relationships and to understand protein assembly coevolution. (
  • But the new study from Dr. Takahashi and colleagues suggests that muscles may also play a role. (
  • Research suggests that higher protein meals can help you lose weight, slow aging, and speed recovery. (

  • Moreover they will share some brand-new clinical data showing that NUTRALYS® pea protein consumption can increase muscle mass in coordination with weight training. (
  • The results of the study, Paddon-Jones points out, seem to show that a more effective pattern of protein consumption is likely to differ dramatically from most Americans' daily eating habits. (
  • Their muscle building rates were then measured using stable isotope labelled "tracers" in the hours following protein consumption. (
  • But if you look at the population in the Netherlands, everybody rides bikes and dairy, and therefore protein, consumption is high. (
  • Huge population data from the USA, analysing death rates over 26 years, has shown high consumption of protein from animal sources (meat, eggs or dairy) slightly increases mortality. (
  • As a muscle is repeatedly exercised to the point of fatigue, the muscle cells adapt to hold more glycogen for fuel. (
  • Because 1 gram of glycogen can hold on to 3 grams of water, when a muscle stores more glycogen it can increase in size due to the extra glycogen and attached water. (
  • Gluconeogenesis is the term that describes how protein is converted to glycogen for ATP. (
  • Sport drinks contain sugar and sodium, which helps to maintain glycogen levels to avoid gluconeogenesis, sparing proteins so they can be used to repair tissues after exercise. (
  • This allows for the quick disposal of glucose, converting it into muscle glycogen ready to be used as fuel. (
  • As insulin is secreted, more amino acids and protein-sparing glycogen get shuttled into the muscle. (
  • This protein source is derived from soybeans, making it an ideal choice for vegans or those who are lactose intolerant. (
