The aim of this study was to assess, through immunohistochemistry, the effects of an adapted moderate training exercise (AMTE) on the expression of Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) and vitamin D receptor (VDR) in kidneys of rats, subjected to AMTE on treadmill for a period of 12 weeks. The results showed a decreased NGAL and an increased VDR expression in the kidney of rats subjected to AMTE. These results suggest a possible protective/preventive role of AMTE on NGAL-associated injuries in kidney, probably through the anti-inflammatory effect of an eventual crosslink between Vitamin D and NGAL signaling pathways which needs to be further investigated.
