Creatine Supplementation and Cognition

2014-07-23 21:08:06 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Resistance training as well as creatine supplementation may be beneficial for cognitive function, such as memory and attention. Therefore, the investigators speculate that resistance training combined with creatine supplementation would promote additive benefits on cognitive function in elderly women.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An amino acid that occurs in vertebrate tissues and in urine. In muscle tissue, creatine generally occurs as phosphocreatine. Creatine is excreted as CREATININE in the urine.

A transferase that catalyzes formation of PHOSPHOCREATINE from ATP + CREATINE. The reaction stores ATP energy as phosphocreatine. Three cytoplasmic ISOENZYMES have been identified in human tissues: the MM type from SKELETAL MUSCLE, the MB type from myocardial tissue and the BB type from nervous tissue as well as a mitochondrial isoenzyme. Macro-creatine kinase refers to creatine kinase complexed with other serum proteins.

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

This enzyme catalyzes the last step of CREATINE biosynthesis by catalyzing the METHYLATION of guanidinoacetate to CREATINE.

An isoenzyme of creatine kinase found in the CARDIAC MUSCLE.
