Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is generally accepted to result in the failure of skeletal muscle blood flow to increase adequately at the onset of muscular work.
There are currently no routine pharmacological interventions towards the treatment of PVD, however, recent Phase III trials in the USA have demonstrated the clinical potential of the phosphodiesterase III inhibitor Cilostazol for pain-free and maximal walking distances in patients with intermittent claudication. PVD is characterized by a marked reliance on oxygen-independent routes of ATP regeneration (phosphocre- atine hydrolysis and glycolysis) in skeletal muscle during contraction and the rapid onset of muscular pain and fatigue. The accumulation of metabolic by-products of oxygen-independent ATP production (hydrogen and lactate ions and inorganic phos- phate) has long been associated with an inhibition in contractile function in bothhealthy volunteers and PVD patients. Therefore, any strategy that could reduce thereliance upon ATP re-synthesis from oxygen-independent routes, and increase thecontribution of oxygen-dependent (mitochondrial) ATP re-synthesis, particularly at the Keywords
onset of exercise, might be expected to improve functional capacity and be of considerable therapeutic value. Historically, the increased contribution of oxygen- independent ATP re-synthesis to total ATP generation at the onset of exercise has been attributed to a lag in muscle blood flow limiting oxygen delivery during thisperiod. However, recent evidence suggests that limited inertia is present at the levelof oxygen delivery, whilst considerable inertia exists at the level of mitochondrialenzyme activation and substrate supply. In support of this latter hypothesis, we havereported on a number of occasions that activation of the pyruvate dehydrogenase Received

During this period, Clearly, any strategy capable of improving functional the shortfall in ATP supply is met by ATP re-synthesis capacity and halting disease progression could be of from oxygen-independent routes. By way of example, considerable therapeutic and economic value. Current Bangsbo et al.

This value ported by the lack of correlation between lower limb declined to approximately 45% during the subsequent blood flow and walking distances in PVD patients (for 60–90 s, and to approximately 30% after 120 s of exer- review see [12]). There are currently no routine pharma- cise; this decrease appeared to be accomplished by a cological interventions towards the treatment of PVD.

Moreover, that the activation of PDC from, and was mirrored by, a lag in PDC activation and ‘priming’ of mitochondria with acetyl groups prior (Figure 2).

Another important finding from this series of stud- observations that the supply of acetyl groups to the TCA ies was that the decline in muscle tension development cycle was limited during the rest-to-work transition [43].

We were able to show that administration of demands of the TCA cycle, and the concentration of sodium acetate increased the availability of acetyl-CoA acetyl-CoA should therefore decline. However, studies and acetylcarnitine in resting skeletal muscle, but did to date have shown that acetyl groups appear to accu- not increase PDC activation. Furthermore, during the mulate throughout moderate-to-intense muscular con- first minute of ischaemic muscle contraction, when the traction [34, 40–42], with this accumulation being PDC was largely inactive, treatment with sodium acetate greater in skeletal muscle contracting under ischaemic increased the contribution of oxygen-dependent ATP conditions [41]. From these findings, it has been inferred regeneration towards the energy demands of the muscle that acetyl-CoA production is probably in excess of when compared with the saline-treated (control) group TCA cycle demands throughout contraction, which con- [44]. However, following this first minute, when near trasts with our hypothesis that metabolic inertia resides maximal activation of PDC had been achieved in both at the level of PDC. Closer scrutiny of the relevant control and acetate groups, it appeared that PDC-derived literature reveals, however, that studies to date have acetyl-CoA, rather than stockpiled acetyl groups per se, failed to investigate the metabolic events occurring was the principal route of substrate delivery to the TCA within the initial seconds of contraction, or indeed, at cycle.

In conclusion, in the present review we have provided convincing evidence to support the contention that PDC activation and acetyl-CoA availability limit oxygen- dependent (mitochondrial) ATP re-synthesis at the onset of skeletal muscle contraction (the so called ‘acetyl group deficit’).
