Summary of "Effects of dietary protein contents and habitual endurance exercise on supplemental leucine oxidation in mice."

The effects of dietary protein contents and regular exercise on the oxidation of supplemented leucine were examined. In the short-term study, male BALB/cCrSlc mice were fed diets containing 0, 10, 20, 35, and 60% protein: energy ratios for 1 week. In the long-term study, exercised and sedentary mice were fed diets containing 20, 35, and 60% protein ratios for 9 weeks. After the feeding periods, the mice were a bolus administered oral supplements of l-[1-C] leucine. Expired gas was analyzed, and oxidized leucine was expressed as a relative CO/CO ratio. In the short-term study, the peak CO/CO ratio significantly increased with diet protein concentrations. Moreover, the long-term study also showed that the peak CO/CO ratio was significantly increased by high protein diets in both exercised and sedentary mice. Our results indicate that supplemental leucine oxidation is associated with consumption of a high-protein diet, irrespective of exercise status. Abbreviations:

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

The lack of sufficient energy or protein to meet the body's metabolic demands, as a result of either an inadequate dietary intake of protein, intake of poor quality dietary protein, increased demands due to disease, or increased nutrient losses.

Agents that improve the ability to carry out activities such as athletics, mental endurance, work, and resistance to stress. The substances can include PRESCRIPTION DRUGS; DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS; phytochemicals; and ILLICIT DRUGS.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Food and dietary formulations including elemental (chemically defined formula) diets, synthetic and semisynthetic diets, space diets, weight-reduction formulas, tube-feeding diets, complete liquid diets, and supplemental liquid and solid diets.
