Abstract Sixty-four male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly assigned to one of eight treatment groups to determine whether vitamin E (VitE) could help protect the heart from oxidative stress induced by either dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) or exercise. Oxidative stress was indicated by lipid peroxidation [i.e., thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS)] and two scavenger enzymes. VitE supplementation (250 IU VitE/kg of diet) was given to one-half of the rats. DHEA acetate (0.35 mol/kg body wt) was injected intraperitoneally to one-half of the animals while the others were injected with corn oil vehicle. All treatments lasted for 5 wk. Next, 32 rats were randomly assigned to run for 1 h on a motorized rodent treadmill at 21 m/min up a 12\% grade and then were killed. The remaining rats were killed at rest. Exercise increased TBARS in heart independent of treatment (1.94 +/- 0.12 vs. 2.43 +/- 0.11 nmol/mg protein). VitE attenuated the amount of TBARS in heart when DHEA was given. DHEA significantly increased TBARS in heart. Total and selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase activities in heart were unaffected by any treatment. DHEA increased catalase activity at rest. Exercise increased catalase activity (71.5 +/- 7.9 vs. 97.4 +/- 9.5 mu mol x min-1 x mg protein-1); however, when VitE was given, the response to exercise was attenuated (74.1 +/- 8.4 vs. 80.9 +/- 9.9 mu mol center dot min-1 x mg protein-1). These results suggest that aerobic exercise and DHEA are mild oxidative stressors on the heart and that VitE supplementation can be beneficial in attenuating these combined stressors on the heart.
