This book examines the effects of acute and chronic exercise on the metabolism of cyclic AMP and protein kinase in cardiac and skeletal muscle. Written by four of the world leaders in this emerging area of exercise biochemistry, Exercise and Intracellular Regulation of Cardiac and Skeletal Muscle also presents information gained during more than 20 years of work in the Soviet Union.
Michael Kalinski directed groundbreaking work at the Kiev State Institute of Physical Culture and the Kiev Research Institute of Biochemistry, two institutes known for establishing new frontiers in exercise biochemistry. In this book, he shares the results of his studies there in the areas of hormonal and intracellular regulation of metabolism.
The book is divided into three parts. Part I provides a comprehensive review of the role of phosphorylation in the functional regulation of cardiac and skeletal muscle. Part II presents new information describing the effects of exercise on cAMP and cAMP-dependent protein kinase. Part III summarizes this information.
This monograph is an excellent reference for exercise biochemists and exercise physiologists. "Non-exercise" biochemists and physiologists who want to fully understand cardiac and skeletal muscle physiology and biochemistry will also find this to be a helpful source.
Exercise and Intracellular Regulation of Cardiac and Skeletal Muscle is the seventh volume in the HK Sport Science Monograph Series.
