The effect of endurance training on human ammonia metabolism
Snow, Rodney J (1988) The effect of endurance training on human ammonia metabolism. Research Master thesis, Footscray Institute of Technology.
This thesis examines human ammonia (NH3) metabolism in trained and untrained individuals. Specifically, these aspects include: 1) plasma NH3 accumulation during exercise at similar absolute and relative work intensities; 2) plasma NH3 accumulation during recovery from maximal exercise; 3) the absolute and relative work intensities at which blood lactate (LA) and plasma NH3 concentrations begin to rapidly accumulate (i.e the LA breakpoint - LABP, and NH3 breakpoint - NH3BP); 4) the relationship between the NH3BP and LABP, and 5) the relationship between plasma NH3, blood (LA), and muscle fibre type.
