The effect of beta2-adrenoceptor stimulation on skeletal muscle protein turnover andintracellular signalling is insufficiently explored in humans, particularly in association withexercise. In a randomized placebo-controlled crossover study with 12 trained men, the effectof beta2-agonist (6×4 mg oral salbutamol) on protein turnover rates, intracellular signalling,and mRNA response in skeletal muscle was investigated 0.5-5 h after quadriceps resistanceexercise. Each trial was preceded by a four-day lead-in treatment period. Leg protein turnoverrates were assessed by infusion of [13C6]-phenylalanine and sampling of arterial and venousblood as well as vastus lateralis muscle biopsies 0.5 and 5 h after exercise. Furthermore,myofibrillar fractional synthesis rate (FSR), intracellular signalling and mRNA response weremeasured in muscle biopsies. Mean (±95%CI) myofibrillar FSR was higher for salbutamolthan placebo [0.079(±0.007) vs. 0.066(±0.004)%×h-1](p1×100 gLeg Lean Mass-1higher forsalbutamol than placebo (ppp<0.01)for salbutamol 5 h after. These observations suggest that beta2-agonist increases proteinturnover rates in skeletal muscle after resistance exercise in humans, with concomitantcAMP/PKA and Akt2 signalling, and modulation of mRNA response of growth-regulatingproteins.
