Exercise can induce increases in HSP70 in the lung, kidney and heart, and in the soleus and gastrocnemius muscles
, probably due to systemic alterations such as hypoxia, increase in temperature and the production of free radicals.
We then tested the expression of Fbx32 and MURF1 in gastrocnemius muscles
The superficial posterior compartment contains the soleus, plantaris, and gastrocnemius muscles
and the sural nerve.
1997): Morphological analysis of the human tibialis anterior and medial gastrocnemius muscles
Sections were cut from biopsy material taken from the gastrocnemius muscles
of nephrectomized and control rats.
Experimental evidence in soleus and gastrocnemius muscles
indicates that nerve sprouts begin to appear approximately 10 days after neuromuscular blockade and that most nerve terminals demonstrate sprouting after 3 weeks.
In experiment 1, bipolar surface electrodes (Ambu, Balerup, Denmark; diameter, 10 mm; center-to-center distance, 20 mm) were placed over the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, biceps femoris, tibialis anterior, soleus, and medial gastrocnemius muscles
of the right leg.
The gastrocnemius muscles
also cross the knee joint and help avoid load bearing in hyperextension.
Procedure for performing eccentric contractions on rat gastrocnemius muscles
