The effects of branched-chain amino acid and leucine ingestion on the ERK1/2 MAP kinase signal transduction pathway in conjunction with an acute bout of heavy resistance exercise.
Purpose: To determine if leucine or BCAA ingestion increases the activation of the ERK1/2 MAPK pathway greater than that which resistance exercise (RE) elicits alone; to determine a possible mechanism for a BCAA or leucine ...
The effects of heavy resistance exercise in combination with orally administered branched-chain amino acids or leucine on insulin signaling and Akt/mTOR pathway activity in active males.
Purpose: To determine if activity of the insulin signaling pathway is increased during lower body resistance exercise due to supplemental BCAA or leucine ingestion. Methods: 30 recreationally trained males (22.5yrs; ...
