aim of this 1H HR-MAS NMR study was to investigate biopsies of skeletal
muscles comparing athletes, sedentary slim and sedentary obese subjects.
1H HR-MAS allows the direct assessment
of glucose-phosphates contained in skeletal muscle biopsies, as was also previously
shown. The current study is the first example for a potential application,
demonstrating differences in glucose-phosphates between muscle tissues from
athletes and sedentary subjects. The results suggest that quantitative
assessment by 1H HR-MAS NMR of Glc-1P and Glc-6P being key players in energy metabolism may prove important for metabolic studies in biopsies.
