Electromyogram spectrum changes during sustained contraction related to proton and diprotonated inorganic phosphate accumulation: a 31P nuclear magnetic resonance study on human calf muscles
Summary The calf muscles of five clinically healthy men were submitted to isometric exercise and examined by 31 P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and electromyography (EMG) to evaluate the influence of proton (H + ) and diprotonated forms of inorganic phosphate (H 2 PO 4 − ) accumulation on EMG spectrum changes. The experiments were performed in a supraconducting magnet (2.35 Tesla, 35-cm effective diameter) using a surface coil (7-cm diameter) positioned against the calf muscles. The EMG surface electrodes were applied on the gastrocnemius medialis muscle and acquisition of both NMR and EMG signals was synchronized. The exercise consisted of a sustained isometric contraction at 70% of the maximal voluntary contraction until exhaustion. A continuous decrease in phosphocreatine content and a large concomitant increase in H 2 PO 4 − was observed in the calf muscles of each subject. A significant increase in H + concentration was also found when considering the whole population but intracellular acidosis was low for two subjects. Moreover, a quasilinear decrease in mean power frequency (MPF) was found during the test. Changes in MPF were correlated with variations in H + and H 2 PO 4 − concentration but a more significant relationship was found when MPF changes were correlated with H 2 PO 4 − concentration. An interpretation of EMG spectrum changes in terms of an accumulation of by-products of anaerobic metabolism and an increase in the relative number of activated slow fibres is proposed.
