Carnosine (ß-alanyl-L-histidine) is a dipeptide abundantly found in skeletal and cardiac muscles as well as in excitable tissues, although the physiological roles played by carnosine and its methylated analogues are still poorly understood. Evidence indicates that carnosine acts as a physico-chemical buffer during intense efforts, which is corroborated by the performance improvements ob...
This study aims to evaluate the effect of a six-month period of beta-alanine supplementation on muscle carnosine and taurine concentrations. Carnosine and taurine quantifications will be performed in muscle biopsy samples using the high performance liquid chromatography technique (HPLC).
Evidences indicate that muscle acidosis is one of the major causes of fatigue in high-intensity exercises. A variety of mechanisms regulates muscle pH, including extracellular buffers, intracellular buffers and dynamic buffering (i.e., efflux of H+ ions to outside the cell). Bicarbonate is the most important extracellular system for the immediate control of pH. Recent studies indicate t...
