E-GEOD-51380 - Gene expression data from 16-month and 3-month old male rats, with three different levels of activity over the life span: sedentary, twice weekly physical activity, regular running wheel exercise
Released on 18 October 2013, last updated on 28 October 2013
Gene expression data at rest and immediately post 30 min submaximal exercise in 3 month and 16 month old male rats, some of which were sedentary (SED), had access to a physical activity box twice weekly (PA) and some of which had daily access to a running wheel (EX). We used microarrays to detail global gene expression underlying select health-related phenotypes and identified differentially expressed genes among the three groups. Young (3 month) and old (16 month) male rats were separated into three different groups: Sedentary (SED), twice-weekly physical activity (PA), and regular exercise (EX). Animals were sacrificed either at rest or after 30 min of sub maximal exercise. Then, a portion of cardiac tissue was collected for RNA extraction and hybridization on Affymetrix microarrays.
