Effect of the HCE from P. emarginatus on brain, liver and TA muscle lipid peroxidation after acute exercise. (A) TBARS were determined in tissue homogenates of rested control rats and 1 h (Exer 1 h), 6 h (Exer 6 h) and 48 h (Exer 48 h) after acute exercise. TBARS were determined in brain and liver (B) and in TA muscle (C) homogenates of rested control rats (1); acutely exercised rats (2); rested rats treated with HCE (3); acutely exercised rats treated with HCE 0.5 h before exercise (4), acutely exercised rats treated with HCE 0.5 h after exercise (5) and acutely exercised rats treated with HCE 24, 12 and 0.5 h before exercise (6). TBARS levels were estimated at 48 h (brain), 6 h (liver) and 6 h and 48 h (TA muscle) after exercise, as indicated. Each column shows the mean ± SE of 8–10 rats. Significance was determined with one-way ANOVA followed by the Tukey-Kramer test. Columns with different letters differed significantly (p < 0.05).
