The effect of 10 days of interval hypoxic training (IHT) on the mRNA expression and protein content of antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione-S-transferase) in leukocytes of children with bronchial asthma (BA) was investigated. It was shown that after sessions of IHT the mRNA expression of superoxide dismutase decreased by 32,5% (P<0,05), but the level of protein was unchanged. The level of catalase gene mRNA and protein content in leukocytes after IHT increased by 67% and 13% accordingly. We detected a 90% increase in glutathione S-transferase level following IHT.

Keywords: antioxidant enzymes, mRNA and protein expres-sion, hypoxic training, bronchial asthma.
