IGF-I has no effect on postexercise suppression of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in rat skeletal muscle



IGF-I has no effect on postexercise suppression of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in rat skeletal muscle



Journal of Applied Physiology 92(6): 2277-2284



Both exercise and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) are known to have major hypertrophic effects in skeletal muscle; however, the interactive effect of exogenous IGF-I and exercise on muscle protein turnover or the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway has not been reported. In the present study, we have examined the interaction between endurance exercise training and IGF-I treatment on muscle protein turnover and the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway in the postexercise period. Adult male rats (270-280 g) were randomized to receive 5 consecutive days of progressive treadmill exercise and/or IGF-I treatment (1 mg kg body wt-1 day-1). Twenty-four hours after the last bout of exercise, the rate of protein breakdown in incubated muscles was significantly reduced compared with that in unexercised rats. This was associated with a significant reduction in the chymotrypsin-like activity of the proteasome and the rate of ubiquitin-proteasome-dependent casein hydrolysis in muscle extracts from exercised compared with unexercised rats. In contrast, the muscle expression of the 20S proteasome subunit b-1, ubiquitin, and the 14-kDa E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme was not altered by exercise or IGF-I treatment 24 h postexercise. Exercise had no effect on the rates of total mixed muscle protein synthesis in incubated muscles 24 h postexercise. IGF-I treatment had no effect on muscle weights or the rates of protein turnover 24 h after endurance exercise. These results suggest that a suppression of the ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic pathway after endurance exercise may contribute to the acute postexercise net protein gain.
