Correlation between surface electromyogram, oxygen uptake and blood lactate concentration during dynamic leg exercises

Respiration Physiology
Y JammesM Badier


Very few data are found in the literature on the adjustment of the motor drive to contracting muscles to their oxygen uptake (V(O2)). The present study examines in seven untrained and trained individuals, who performed a progressive 8 min and two 5 min constant-load cycling exercises, the changes in the ratio between total EMG energy (root mean square or RMS), recorded in a leg extensor (vastus lateralis), to the corresponding V(O2) value and their correlations with the anaerobic threshold (V(O2)AT) and the peak blood lactate concentration. In all circumstances, the RMS/V(O2) ratio began to increase, then it decreased progressively despite V(O2) continued to rise (progressive exercise) or plateaued (constant-load exercises preseted at a sub- or suprathreshold level). The decrease in RMS/V(O2) ratio persisted and it was often accentuated during the first 2 min of the recovery period. In all exercise protocols, the rate of RMS/V(O2) decrease was positively correlated with the initial peak increase in this ratio. During progressive exercise, the peak increase in RMS/V(O2) ratio as well as its rate of decrease were negatively correlated with V(O2)AT. Thus, training and/or the reduction of anaerobic muscle metabolism attenuate the c...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
