Abstract

The effect of exercise and conditioning on 2,3-diphosphoglycerate levels was studied in nine mature horses. During a 12 minute exercise bout producing heart rates of 165 bpm, 2,3-DPG was significantly increased (p<.05). In addition, exercising levels of 2,3-DPG were increased (p<.05) approximately 8% after a six-week submaximal conditioning program. These increases could not be entirely attributed to changes in erythrocyte number. Mean corpuscular volume was also increased during exercise (p<.05) but was not altered by conditioning.
