Regulation of pH in skeletal muscle comprises intracellular buffering of hydrogen ions (H+) and acid/base (H+/HCO3−) transport across the sarcolemma. During high-intensity exercise H+ transport is primarily lactate-coupled through the monocarboxylate transporters (MCT)1/4, with non-lactate-coupled transport provided by the sodium/hydrogen exchanger (NHE) system. The chaperone protein basigin is essential for MCT functioning. Intracellular buffering comprises metabolic and physicochemical buffering (βm), the latter mainly from the histidine-based proteins and dipeptides, and inorganic phosphate. The sodium-coupled bicarbonate transport proteins (NCBT) enhance intracellular buffering and H+ efflux, while the cytosolic and sarcolemmal carbonic anhydrase (CA) isozymes may enhance activity of each transport system by physical or functional interactions.
