The effects of exercise on the molecular nature of secreted human growth hormone (GH) or its biological activity are not well understood. Plasma from women (average age 23.6 yr, n = 35), drawn before and after an acute heavy resistance exercise test, was fractionated by size exclusion chromatography into three size classes, namely, > 60 kDa (fraction A), 30-60 kDa (fraction B), and < 30 kDa (fraction C), before GH assay. Concentrations of GH in these fractions, as well as in unfractioned plasma… CONTINUE READING
