Impact of Exercise Training on Carbohydrate Metabolic Profiles in the Kidney Tissue of Male Albino Rats
*Laboratory of Exercise Biochemistry, Taipei Physical Education College, Taipei City, 11153, Taiwan.
The present study, was designed to investigate the role of exercise training on carbohydrate metabolic profiles in the kidney tissue of two different age groups of rats. The age-matched Wistar strain male albino rats were evenly divided into 4 groups, normal control young (NC- Y), normal control old (NC-O), exercise trained (Ex T -Y) and exercise trained (NC-O). Exercise training was given to the rats for 2 months. After completion of 2 months exercise training the kidney tissue was isolated and assayed the carbohydrate metabolic profiles like, total carbohydrates (TC), glucose (GL), free amino acids (FAA) lactate (LA) total proteins (TP, and pyruvate (PY). In old rats a significant elevation of TC, GL, FAA, LA levels and significant depletion of TP, PY levels were observed than that of control rats. In both the age groups, exercise training significantly reversed the above metabolic profiles to normal levels due to proper utilization of carbohydrate metabolic profiles. This study, clearly shows that exercise could alter the age related accumulated carbohydrate metabolic profiles and their metabolic products in the body. Hence, exercise may have beneficial role against the aging process.
