Abstract: Effects of heat stress on phosphorylated nuclear factor-κB (phospho-NF-κB) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) contents in skeletal muscles were studied. Male Wistar rats (7-week-old) were randomly assigned to control and heat-stressed groups. Rats in heat-stressed group were exposed to heat stress (42°C for 60 min) in an incubator without anesthesia. Soleus muscles were dissected and weighted 1, 3, and 7 days after the heat exposure. Significant increases in the wet weight and protein content of soleus were observed 7 days following the exposure (p  play a part of a role in heat stress-associated muscle hypertrophy.
