This article is from Journal of Physical Therapy Science, volume 26.AbstractPurpose This study was to examine the effects of 12 weeks of Tai Chi TC exercise on antioxidant capacity, and DNA damage-repair in young females who did not perform regular physical exercise. Subjects and Methods Ten female students from a Chinese university voluntarily participated in this program. All of them practiced the 24-form simplified Tai Chi, 5 times weekly, for 12 weeks. Plasma levels of superoxide dismutase SOD, glutathione peroxidase GPx, malondialdehyde MDA, glutathione GSH, hydroxyl radical inhibiting capacity OH·-IC, 8-hydroxy-2’-deoxyguanosine 8-OHdG, and 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase OGG1 were measured at 0, 8, and 12 weeks. Heart rate HR was monitored during the last set of the training session at 4, 8, and 12 weeks. Results Plasma SOD and OH·-IC levels were increased at 8 and 12 weeks compared to the baseline 0 weeks. Gpx and GSH levels did not change significantly throughout the study period. The plasma MDA level was decreased significantly at 8 weeks but not at 12 weeks compared to the baseline value. While the plasma 8-OHdG level did not change throughout the study period, the plasma OGG1 level was significantly increased at 8 and 12 weeks compared to the baseline value. Conclusion TC practice for 12 weeks efficiently improved the oxidative stress response in young females who did not perform regular physical exercise. The TC exercise also increased the DNA repairing capacity.
