Abstract provided by Publisher
The purpose of the study was to investigate whether prolonged exercises influence the activity of liver tryptophan oxygenase. Hepatic tryptophan oxygenase activity was assessed in male Wistar rats after swimming for 4, 8, 12 or 16 h. Simultaneously blood corticosterone concentration was determined in blood plasma. After swimming for 4 or 8 h the enzyme activity was increased. More prolonged swimming sets caused enzyme activities below the control level. Enzyme activity alterations were concordant with changes in blood level of corticosterone (r=0.537, p<0.01).
