Aim: To evaluate the influence of physical training on myocardial function, oxidative stress, energy metabolism, and MAPKs and NF-κB signaling pathways in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), at advanced stage of arterial hypertension, which precedes heart failure development.
Methods: We studied four experimental groups: normotensive Wistar rats (W, = 27), trained W (W-EX, = 31), SHR ( = 27), and exercised SHR (SHR-EX, = 32). At 13 months old, the exercise groups underwent treadmill exercise 5 days a week for 4 months. Read More
