|Title:||Prevention of adrenocortical hyperactivity by dietary casein in rats exposed to forced swimming stress|
|Authors:||Biswas, N M|
|Abstract:||Adrenal weight, adrenal hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity and serum corticosterone level were significantly higher in rats fed with 5% casein diet after 7 days of swimming stress (45 min/day) as compared to their controls. All the parameters were similar to their control levels in rats receiving 20% casein diet and exposed to swimming stress. The results suggest that casein can play an important role in preventing adrenocortical hyperactivity in swimming stressed rats.|
