OBJECTIVE We tested the hypothesis that the decline in endothelium-dependent arteriolar dilation in adult rats is reversed by chronic exercise activity. METHODS Rats were divided into young (8-10 weeks)-sedentary (SED(Y)), adult (29-32 weeks)-sedentary (SED(A)), and adult-exercised (EX(A), treadmill exercise for 18-20 weeks) groups. Responses of isolated arterioles ( approximately 50 microm at 80 mm Hg) of gracilis muscle were assessed to increases in perfusate flow and vasoactive agents… CONTINUE READING
