Abstract:
In the present study, the effects of three months exercise training in the expression of ET-1 gene in lungs tissue were investigated. Twenty male Wistar rats (235±27 g) were maintained on a 12:12 h light-dark cycleand received food and water. Animals were randomly divided into two groups (n = 10). Rats in test group ran on a treadmill for 60 min at a speed of 25 m min-1 daily for 3 months. Total RNA was extracted from the lung tissue and the expression of ET-1 mRNA was assessed by RT-PCR. Analysis of results indicated that the expression of ET-1 mRNA in the lung was significantly higher in the exercise rats than in the control rats (p<0.05). The results of this study were shown that three months exercise increased the ET-1 expression in the lungs that could increase the blood flow of lungs via ETB receptor.
