Abstract: Work induced stress led to decreased cholesterol and fluctuating triglyceride levels in gastrocnemius and pectoralis muscles in rats. But the drug (clenbuterol, 2 mg kg-1 day-1) treatment increased cholesterol and triglyceride levels in both the muscles. However, heart showed decreased cholesterol and increased triglyceride level in the animals under work stress, but  at the same time drug treatment led to a significant increase in levels of the two lip id fractions, inferring towards deleterious effect of the drug on heart.
