Effect of Nutrition on Muscle Protein Synthesis

2015-04-15 10:57:57 | BioPortfolio


The present proposal is designed to examine the effect of carbohydrate and protein co-ingestion on muscle protein synthesis during endurance type exercise activities. We hypothesize that muscle protein synthesis is higher when protein is co-ingested during exercise.

Lipoprotein Effects of Substituting Beef Protein for Carbohydrate

The purpose of this study is to test whether replacing dietary carbohydrate with protein, using beef as the primarily source of protein, will improve risk factors for cardiovascular diseas...

Muscle Glycogen Synthesis When Caffeine and Protein is Co-Ingested With Carbohydrates

The aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of added protein+leucine or caffeine to 1.2 g/kg/h CHO on the rate of post-exercise muscle glycogen re-synthesis in healthy, recre...

High-protein and High-carbohydrate Diets' Effect on Urinary Concentrating Ability

We wanted to test urinary concentrating ability and AQP-2 expression in kidney during high-protein and high-carbohydrate diet.

Protein Ingestion and Muscle Carnitine Uptake

The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of a protein-carbohydrate beverage on the absorption of an orally ingested bolus of L-carnitine, compared to flavoured water and carbohyd...

Protein Supplementation and Endurance Exercise Adaptations

Participants will perform three endurance training sessions weekly for 12 weeks. All participants will be randomly assigned to the protein supplementation group or the placebo (iso-caloric...

StackCBPred: A stacking based prediction of protein-carbohydrate binding sites from sequence.

Carbohydrate-binding proteins play vital roles in many important biological processes. The study of these protein-carbohydrate interactions, at residue level, is useful in treating many critical disea...

Low Protein Diets with Fixed Carbohydrate Content Promote Hyperphagia and Sympathetically Mediated Increase in Energy Expenditure.

Dietary protein restriction elicits hyperphagia and increases energy expenditure; however, less is known of whether these responses are a consequence of increasing carbohydrate content. We determined ...

Increased systemic endothelial-dependent microvascular reactivity after ingestion of a high-carbohydrate snack in young, healthy volunteers.

This study evaluated the acute effect of a high-carbohydrate snack (HCS) on systemic microvascular function of healthy, young volunteers, using laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI).

Protein and carbohydrate intakes alter gut microbial community structure in crickets: A Geometric Framework approach.

Protein and carbohydrate have profound impacts on the ecology of gut microbiota, but disentangling the single and interactive effects of different dietary constituents is challenging. Here we used a m...

Application of the ≤ 10:1 carbohydrate to fiber ratio to identify healthy grain foods and its association with cardiometabolic risk factors.

Optimal metrics to assess healthfulness of carbohydrate-rich products are not well established. We investigated how the content per 10 g of carbohydrate of at least 1 g of fiber (≤ 10:1-ratio) r...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins which contain carbohydrate groups attached covalently to the polypeptide chain. The protein moiety is the predominant group with the carbohydrate making up only a small percentage of the total weight.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

The characteristic 3-dimensional shape of a carbohydrate.

Proteins that share the common characteristic of binding to carbohydrates. Some ANTIBODIES and carbohydrate-metabolizing proteins (ENZYMES) also bind to carbohydrates, however they are not considered lectins. PLANT LECTINS are carbohydrate-binding proteins that have been primarily identified by their hemagglutinating activity (HEMAGGLUTININS). However, a variety of lectins occur in animal species where they serve diverse array of functions through specific carbohydrate recognition.

A diet that consists mainly of foods with a high content of protein and limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES.
