Compared with the resting state, vigorously contracting muscle shows:



A an increased conversion of pyruvate to lactate.

B decreased oxidation of pyruvate to CO2 and water.

C a decreased NADH/NAD+ ratio.

D a decreased concentration of AMP.

Ans. A an increased conversion of pyruvate to lactate.

a. Vigorously contracting muscle shows an increased formation of lactate and an increased rate of pyruvate oxidation compared with resting skeletal muscle.

b. The levels of AMP and NADH increase, whereas change in the concentration of fructose 2,6-bisphosphate is not a key regulatory factor in skeletal muscle.
