The influence of heavy physical effort on proteolytic adaptations in skeletal and heart muscle and aorta in rats.

Ann Agric Environ Med 2018 Dec 10;25(4):605-609. Epub 2017 Jul 10.

Department of Clinical Nursing, Medical University, Warsaw, Poland.

Physical effort can elicit differential adaptive changes in the tissues of trained versus untrained rats. Proteolytic activity in the extracellular matrix could be engaged in such adaptation due to its influence on the elasticity of tissues. The effects were investigated of a single physical effort on the activity of elastase, cathepsin K, and plasmin in the skeletal muscles, heart muscles, and aortas of untrained (UT, n=30) and trained (T, n=30) rats.

Indoor swimming pools can be used all year round and serve for one of the most popular sport pursued for recreation. The positive effect of swimming arises in particular from the involvement of all the muscles of the body, decreasing the burden on the joints, as well as functional improvement of both the lungs and heart. Chlorine is typically used to disinfect swimming pool water and as a result the changes that take place lead to the formation of by-products, such as monochloramines (NH2Cl), dichloramines (NH2Cl2) i trichloramines (NH2Cl3), trihalogenometans (THM) or haloacetic acid (HAA).
