What will happen 60 minutes after exercise?

options:
1- VEGF mRNA (decrease), bFGF mRNA (decrease), Myogolobin O2 (increased), Capillary density (increased)
2- VEGF mRNA (decrease), bFGF mRNA (increase), Myoglobin O2 (decrease), Capillary density (decrease)
3- VEGF mRNA (same), bFGF mRNA (increase), Myoglobin O2 (increase), Capillary density (same)
4- VEGF mRNA (increase), bFGF mRNA (same), Myoglobin O2 (decrease), Capillary density (increase)
5- VEGF mRNA (increase), bFGF mRNA (same), Myoglobin O2 (decrease), Capillary density (same)

Couldn't know what's the correct answer:(

Well, we know for sure the myoglobin oxygen is going to be consumed and the capillary density will increase
So only choice 4 is the likely correct

The sequence of events is like this

decreased oxygen concentration will induce vascular endothelial growth factor which will increase the capillary density but I think one hour is not enough to for the capillary to grow, therefore the most likely correct answer is option 5 :)
