Seventy two rats were randomized to twelve independent groups of rats (n = 6 in all groups) where half of the rats were chosen for training (treadmill exercise training 1.5 hour 5 days a week, in 1, 4, 24, 48 days and for 4 and 8 weeks) or sedentary (no training) as described in detail by Wisloff et al. (Intensity-controlled treadmill running in rats: VO(2 max) and cardiac hypertrophy. Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol. 2001 Mar;280(3):H1301-10.) or Kemi et al.(Aerobic fitness is associated with cardiomyocyte contractile capacity and endothelial function in exercise training and detraining. Circulation. 2004 Jun 15;109(23):2897-904. Epub 2004 Jun 1.). The rats were scarified one hour after training (1, 4, 24 and 48 days) or 24 hours after training (4 and 8 weeks). Biopsies form left ventricle was taken form all rats and stored on -80°C for preparation of RNA. The same procedures were performed for the control/sedentary rats which were sacrificed at the same time as the exercised rats.
