The present study was designed to determine the effects of exercise on the antioxidant enzymatic system and lipid peroxidation in small intestine and kidney, during the post-exercise period in untrained mice. Two days after the last adaptation running exercise, animals were ran on the treadmill for 60 min at 18 m/min. 5 degrees slope. After the acute exercise the animals were killed by cervical dislocation, immediately (0 h), 3 hours (3 h) and 24 hours (24 h) after the exercise. Control animals were killed without running exercise. Their proximal small intestinal and renal tissues were quickly removed. Changes in the concentration of thiobarbituric acid reactive substance (TBARS), as an index of lipid peroxidation, in intestine and kidney were studied in mice after the running exercise and in unexercised control group. The activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx) were determined in these tissues. Tissue SOD, GPx activities and TBARS level were not increase by the exercise in kidney. Intestinal SOD activity decreased after exercise (0 h and 3 h respectively, p<0.05, p<0.01) and retumed to control levels. Intestinal GPx activity increased after exercise (0 h, p<0.05) and returned to control levels. There was no significant difference among groups in intestinal tissue TBARS levels. These findings could suggest that submaximal exercise may not cause oxidative stress in proximal small intestinal tissue and kidney.
