Male rats were run downhill for 90 minutes (nonexhaustive). Following the exercise, muscle protein degradation was increased, as determined by urinary 3-methylhistidine. However, minimal changes were observed in the relative percentage of the minor myofibrillar proteins and in the protease calcium activated factor in the long head of the triceps brachii muscle (eccentrically exercised) following the exercise bout.
