Physical exertion is a stimulus for the upregulation of cytokine production including IL-1beta, IL-1ra, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10 and TNF-alpha in horses. To investigate that hypothesis, we initiated training of 5 stall-rested Thoroughbreds. Blood samples were drawn before and weekly during training. The relative transcription of mRNA within the leucocytes was measured using real time TaqMan quantitative PCR. The training protocol was walking (3 min), trotting (3 min) and cantering/galloping (6… CONTINUE READING
