Reduction in plasma leucine after sprint exercise is greater in males than in females
Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports, 06/01/2012
Esbjörnsson M et al. – The lower plasma ammonia after sprint exercise in females seems to be explained by a lower accumulation of ammonia in skeletal muscle and by a buffering of ammonia in the form of glutamine in females. The greater reduction in plasma leucine in males seems to be related to their greater increase in muscle ammonia after sprint exercise.
