Abstract

The time course of insulin sensitivity, skeletal muscle glycogen and GLUT4 content, and glycogen synthase (GS) activity after a single bout of intense exercise was examined in eight horses. On separate days, a euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic clamp (EHC) was undertaken at 0.5, 4, or 24 h after exercise or after 48 h of rest control (Con). There was no increase in mean glucose infusion rate (GIR) with exercise (0.5-, 4-, and 24-h trials), and GIR was significantly decreased at 0.5 h postexercise (GIR: 8.6 ± 2.7, 6.7 ± 2.0, 9.0 ± 2.0, and 10.6 ± 2.2 mg·kg –1 ·min –1 for Con and at 0.5, 4, and 24 h, respectively). Before each EHC, muscle glycogen content (mmol glucosyl units/kg dry muscle) was higher ( P < 0.05) for Con (565 ± 102) than for other treatments (317 ± 84, 362 ± 79, and 382 ± 74 for 0.5, 4, and 24 h, respectively) and muscle GLUT4 content was unchanged. Pre-EHC active-to-total GS activity ratio was higher ( P < 0.05) at 0.5, 4, and 24 h after exercise than in Con. Post-EHC active GS and GS activity ratio were higher ( P < 0.05) in Con and at 24 h. There was a significant inverse correlation ( r = –0.43, P = 0.02) between glycogen content and GS activity ratio but no relationship between GS activity and GIR. The lack of increase in insulin sensitivity, determined by EHC, after exercise that resulted in a significant reduction in muscle glycogen content is consistent with the slow rate of muscle glycogen resynthesis observed in equine studies. glucose uptake; muscle glycogen; GLUT4; acute exercise Address for reprint requests and other correspondence: R.
