dc.description.abstractYoung female rats treated with trenbolone demonstrated an increase in weight gain per day and overall weight increase during the treatment period. Trenbolone treated rats also experienced improved feed efficiency. Muscles removed from the lower hind limb of trenbolone treated rats had a greater DNA to protein ratio than muscles from control animals. However, there was no significant difference in wet muscle weight between trenbolone treated and control muscles. Satellite cells from untreated female rats were not responsive to trenbolone added in vitro. In studies utilizing serum free medium, trenbolone alone, and in the presence of growth factors, could not stimulate proliferation above controls. In similar serum free medium studies, satellite cells from trenbolone treated rats were more responsive to growth factors than cells from control rats.
