Exercise physiology : human bioenergetics and its applications by George A Brooks( Book )

38 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered a standard in the field, this text integrates bioenergetics into every chapter and provides a comprehensive survey of current data and research in exercise physiology
Perspectives on the academic discipline of physical education : a tribute to G. Lawrence Rarick by George A Brooks( Book )

12 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major specializations in the discipline of physical education are often identified by the terms: history of physical education; exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor development, motor learning, sport psychology, and sport sociology. In this text, two chapters are provided on each of these specialized areas. One chapter describes the emergence of study in the area of specialization, and the second chapter describes the current status of the field and suggests areas for further research. A discussion on the relatively new area of sports sociology describes the emergence of, and future prospect for, study. Special chapters discuss the experimental approaches used for solving problems in physical education research. Chapters are included on the metabolism of lactic acid and its involvement with recovery from strenuous exercise, the evolution of the "memory drum" theory, and the perceptual-cognitive development of motor skills. The contribution of physical education to the development of physically handicapped individuals is discussed in a chapter on adapted physical education. (Editors/JD)

Endurance training increases fatty acid turnover, but not fat oxidation, in young men( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We examined the effects of exercise intensity and a 10-wk cycle ergometer training program (5 days/wk, 1 h, 75% peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak)) on plasma free fatty acid (FFA) flux, total fat oxidation, and a whole body lipolysis in healthy male subjects (n=10, age=25.6 +- 1.0 yr). Two pretrainingtrials (45 and 65% of VO2peak) and two posttraining trials (same absolute workload, 65% of old VO2peak; and same relative workload, 65% of new VO2peak were performed by uisng an in fusion of (1-13C) palmitate and (1,1,2,3,3- H2) glycerol. An additional nine subjects (age 25.4 +-0.8 yr) weretreated similary but were infused with (1,1,2,3,3- H2) glycerol and not (1-13C) palmitate. Subjects were studied postabsorptive for 90 min of rest and1h of cycling exercise. After training, subjects increased VO2peak by 9.4+-1.4%. Pretraining, plasma FFA kinetics were inversely related to exerciseintensity with rates of appearance (Ra) and disappearance (Rd) being significantly higher at 45 than 65% VO2peak (RA:8.14 +- 1.28 vs. 6.64 +- 0.46,Rd 8.03 +- 1.28 vs 6.42 +- 0.41 mol kg-1 min-1)(P<=0.05). After training, when measured at the same absolute and relative intensities, FFA Ra increased to 8.84 +- 1.1, 8.44 +- 1.1 and Rd to 8.82 +- 1.1, 8.35 +- 1.1 mol kg-1 min -1, respectively (p<=0.05). Total fat oxidation determined from respiratory exchange ratio was elevated during exercise compared with rest, but did not differ among the four conditions. Glycerol Ra was elevated during exercise compared with rest but did not demonstrate significant intensity or training effects during exercise. Thus, in young men, plasma FFA flux is increased during exercise after endurance training, but total fat oxidation and whole-body lipolysis are unaffected when measured at the same absolute or relative exercise intensities
Unique growth pattern of human mammary epithelial cells induced by polymeric nanoparticles( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Due to their unique properties, engineered nanoparticles (NPs) have found broad use in industry, technology, and medicine, including as a vehicle for drug delivery. However, the understanding of NPs' interaction with different types of mammalian cells lags significantly behind their increasing adoption in drug delivery. In this study, we show unique responses of human epithelial breast cells when exposed to polymeric Eudragit® RS NPs (ENPs) for 1–3days. Cells displayed dose‐dependent increases in metabolic activity and growth, but lower proliferation rates, than control cells, as evidenced in tetrazolium salt (WST‐1) and 5‐bromo‐2′‐deoxyuridine (BrdU) assays, respectively. Those effects did not affect cell death or mitochondrial fragmentation. We attribute the increase in metabolic activity and growth of cells culture with ENPs to three factors: (1) high affinity of proteins present in the serum for ENPs, (2) adhesion of ENPs to cells, and (3) activation of proliferation and growth pathways. The proteins and genes responsible for stimulating cell adhesion and growth were identified by mass spectrometry and Microarray analyses. We demonstrate a novel property of ENPs, which act to increase cell metabolic activity and growth and organize epithelial cells in the epithelium as determined by Microarray analysis

First in vivo traumatic brain injury imaging via magnetic particle imaging( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Emergency room visits due to traumatic brain injury (TBI) is common, but classifying the severity of the injury remains an open challenge. Some subjective methods such as the Glasgow Coma Scale attempt to classify traumatic brain injuries, as well as some imaging based modalities such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. However, to date it is still difficult to detect and monitor mild to moderate injuries. In this report, we demonstrate that the magnetic particle imaging (MPI) modality can be applied to imaging TBI events with excellent contrast. MPI can monitor injected iron nanoparticles over long time scales without signal loss, allowing researchers and clinicians to monitor the change in blood pools as the wound heals
