The young BSO and vehicle groups adapted positively to the chronic exposure while the old animals did not. Glutathione depletion did not have a negative effect on performance in either age group. These results suggest that compensatory mechanisms are age-dependent and allow for adaptation to repetitive mechanical loads even when the glutathione pathway is compromised.
