Heart functional responses to pressure overload in exercised and sedentary rats.

Abstract

Female rats that had been subjected to a moderate treadmill running program were compared with sedentary animals on the basis of heart weight, selected biochemical measurements, and heart function. Exercised animals maintained normal growth rate, and cardiac hypertrophy was not present. Left ventricular RNA, DNA, and cytochrome c levels were unchanged… (More)
