GH secretion is altered by exercise in humans. In an attempt to investigate the underlying mechanisms, we developed a rodent model. GH secretion was assayed in male and female rats that were sedentary (not exercised), acutely exercised, and chronically exercised. Sedentary males showed typical pulsatile GH secretion. The acutely exercised males had low GH concentrations during the exercise bout, but showed partial recovery of GH pulses during the 5.5-h postexercise period. GH secretion in the… CONTINUE READING
