Exercise induced oxidative stress and muscle stress protein responses in trotters

Published: 2005-05-12

Brief content of the article
These authors aimed to show how a single bout of moderate exercise affects the markers of oxidative stress and heat shock proteins (HSP) and glucose-regulated protein expression in horses. The authors observed that one bout of acute exercise increased protein oxidation and that mild muscle damage was present 4 h after exercise. According to the authors these results showed that horses are susceptible to oxidative stress. One bout of exercise at moderate intensity and duration did not induce HSP responses despite the increased protein oxidation and tissue inflammation in equine muscle.
