Sparing effect of chronic high-altitude exposure on muscle glycogen utilization

Journal of Applied Physiology: Respiratory, Environmental and Exercise Physiology
A J YoungJ T Maher

Abstract

Substrate utilization during heavy [approximately 85% maximum O2 consumption (VO2max)] bicycle exercise was examined in eight low-altitude residents at sea level (SL) and after acute (2 h) and chronic (18 days) high-altitude (HA) exposure at 4,300 m. Mean VO2max was approximately 27% lower at acute HA than at SL and did not change significantly with continued HA exposure. Biopsies from the vastus lateralis muscle and venous blood samples were obtained before and after 30 min of exercise, whereas determinations of the respiratory exchange ratio (R) were made at 10-min intervals during each of the submaximal bouts. Resting levels of serum-free fatty acids at acute and chronic HA were, respectively, two and three times higher than SL but were unchanged with exercise. Exercise did not alter resting serum glycerol levels at SL or during acute HA, but during chronic HA resting glycerol levels were increased 11-fold. Although mean blood lactate concentrations following exercise at SL and acute HA were not significantly different, postexercise lactate concentrations were 87% lower after chronic HA. During exercise at SL and acute HA, muscle glycogen utilization and R were not different. At chronic HA, muscle glycogen utilization and R ...Continue Reading

COVID-19

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.
