Table 3 Effect of exercise on CTRP2, CTRP9, GDF-8 and GDF-15 levels

From: Regulation of circulating CTRP-2/CTRP-9 and GDF-8/GDF-15 by intralipids and insulin in healthy control and polycystic ovary syndrome women following chronic exercise training

CTRPs & GDFs Control Subjects
(N = 9)
P-value PCOS Subjects
(N = 10)
P-value
CTRP-2, ng/mL 0.02 (− 0.27, 0.32) 0.85 0.19 (− 0.18, 0.56) 0.28
CTRP-9, ng/mL −2.88 (−31.17, 25.42) 0.82 −2.31 (−14.72, 10.09) 0.68
GDF-8, ng/mL −1.03 (−1.99, − 0.06) 0.04 −1.54 (−2.91, − 0.17) 0.03
GDF-15, ng/mL − 0.01 (− 0.16, 0.14) 0.84 0.03 (− 0.19, 0.25) 0.75
  1. The data are expressed as the difference between the values after and before exercise expressed as mean and (95% CI)
  2. CTRPs C1Q/TNF related proteins, GDFs Growth differentiation factors
  3. Student’s paired t-test was done to determine the significant difference within control and PCOS subjects respectively
