  2. pmc The influence of carbohydrate-protein co-ingestion following endurance exercise on myofibrillar and mitochondrial protein synthesis
    Leigh Breen
    School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK
    J Physiol 589:4011-25. 2011
    ..These data indicate that the increase in myofibrillar MPS for C+P could, potentially, be mediated through p70S6K, downstream of mTOR, which in turn may suppress the rise in eEF2 on translation elongation...

    Leigh Breen
    Department of Kinesiology, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
    Nutr Metab (Lond) 8:68. 2011
    ..Resistance exercise combined with amino acid ingestion elicits the greatest anabolic response and may assist elderly in producing a 'youthful' muscle protein synthetic response provided sufficient protein is ingested following exercise...
