Changes in glycogen metabolism were explored in fast and slow muscles taken from rats fed with a diet containing 1% beta-guanidine propionate (GPA), a synthetic analog that inhibits the entry of creatine into muscle cells competitively and causes phosphorylcreatine depletion. Feeding with the GPA-containing diet increased glycogen levels in the two types of muscles to a different extent and with different temporal patterns; it did not change significantly the rate of glycogen turnover both at rest and during exercise; it did not affect the net degradation of glycogen during exercise. Diet could affect the activity of several enzymes of sugar metabolism. These latter changes too were different in fast-twitch and in slow-twitch muscles.
