Carbohydrate-electrolyte drinks: effects on endurance cycling in the heat

, : Carbohydrate-electrolyte drinks: effects on endurance cycling in the heat. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 48(4): 1023-1030

On three occasions cyclists completed, as fast as possible, two exercise tasks (T1 and T2) separated by 30 min rest. T1 and T2 were equivalent to the work performed during 2 h cycling at 75% VO(2)max and 30 min at 75% VO(2)max, respectively. Every 20 min subjects drank 275 mL of a 6% (MC) or 2.5% (LC) carbohydrate-electrolyte beverage or a water placebo (P). The initial drink during both T1 and the rest period contained 20 g D(2)O as a marker for entry of ingested fluid into blood. No differences in drink effects were found for heart rate, sweat rate, change in plasma volume, rectal temperature, or D(2)O accumulation in blood. Blood glucose and respiratory exchange ratios were higher and T2 was performed faster with MC than with P. Ingestion of MC can help maintain blood glucose and enhance performance of prolonged cycling exercise without compromising fluid replenishment.

Background/Aims: Oxaliplatin damages the DNA, leading to apoptosis. XPA, XPD, ERCC1 and XPG genes are involved in DNA repair, and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in these genes can influence the efficacy of oxaliplatin. We examined SNPs in...

Of 1500 potato samples from the world collection only 12% appeared healthy and had no latent infection ; 163 samples were infected only by virus X, 150 by S and 3 cvs. by M. Most samples were infected by X + S or M + X + S.

We have identified two distinct subunits of 20 S proteasomes that are associated with RNase activity. Proteasome subunits zeta and iota, eluted from two-dimensional Western blots, hydrolysed tobacco mosaic virus RNA, whereas none of the other subu...

We report here that a broad spectrum of phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) antagonists produce a concentration-dependent, differential block in the endocytic recycling pathway of transferrin (Tf) and Tf receptors (TfRs) but have no acute affect on Tf upt...
