Effects of 8-Week Hatha Yoga Training on Metabolic and Inflammatory Markers in Healthy, Female Chinese Subjects: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Figure 2

Yoga practice reduced circulating CD31+/CD42b− EMPs levels. Circulating EMPs were measured in platelet-poor plasma by flow cytometry with fluorochrome labeled antibodies specific for PE-CD42b, FITC-CD31, and APC-CD62E. EMPs were identified as CD62E+ and CD31+/CD42b− events with a diameter <1 μM. (a) Fasting CD31+/CD42b− EMPs were reduced postyoga practice compared to preyoga training condition. (b) Representative fluorescence-activated cell sorter dot plots of CD31+/CD42b− of a subjects before (top) and after (bottom) yoga practice. (c) No difference for CD62E+ EMPs between groups. (d) Representative fluorescence-activated cell sorter dot plots of CD62E+ of a subjects before (top) and after (bottom) yoga practice. Data are presented as mean + SEM ().   versus preyoga training condition within the same group in (a); versus control group at baseline level.
