Study of Effect of Various Grades of Exercise on Serum Proteins in Healthy Young Indian Adults
Keywords:Exercise, Serum Protein, Ergometer, Endurance.
Serum total protein levels changes occur as a result of various grades of exercise intensity. The main
objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of different grades of exercise on the serum levels of
proteins in healthy young Indian adults. Fifty six healthy students (28 each, male and female) with an age
range of 18–27 years were subjects in this study. The participants performed an exercise test of moderate to
vigorous intensity on bicycle ergometer. The serum concentrations of total serum proteins were measured
by colorimetric method. The results show significantlysignificantly different and lower (9.9%) total serum
protein level after moderate exercise (7.10 ± 0.18 vs. 6.40 ± 0.14, mean difference=0.70, q=4.78, p<0.01)
and higher (7.9%) after severe exercise (7.10 ± 0.18 vs. 7.72 ± 0.12, mean difference=0.61, q=4.18, p<0.05)
as compared to baseline was observed. Further, the mean total serum protein level also increases (17.0%)
significantly after severe exercise as compared to after moderate exercise (6.40 ± 0.14 vs. 7.72 ± 0.12, mean
difference=1.31, q=8.96, p<0.001). These results support the different grades of exercise affect serum total
