There was a significant negative correlation between body weight and soleus muscle weight/body weight ratio (r=-0.732, P< 0.005; Figure 3B).
Determination of PCR cycle for amplification curve GAPDH expression in gastrocnemius (top) and soleus muscle (bottom).
Regarding the aerobic training, differences between the ATS and ATT groups were not observed in the soleus muscle. However, in the EDL muscle, the ATS group demonstrated a higher cross-sectional value than the ATT, being even larger than the RTW.
This characteristic suggests adaptation mechanisms of the soleus muscle to tolerate the ischemic injuries (Figures 1N, 1Q and 2B).
Twenty-four hours after the last exercise training session, sedentary and trained rats were killed and the soleus muscle was immediately frozen in melted isopentane and then stored in liquid nitrogen.
Malondialdehyde (MDA) Analysis in Soleus Muscle. A 100 [micro]L aliquot of soleus muscle homogenate was used for MDA analysis.
EDL and soleus muscles excised from the contralateral hindlimb were embedded in optimal cutting temperature compound (TissueTek OCT Compound) and frozen in thawing isopentane for histological analysis.
45 days of HDBR resulted in muscle atrophy in the soleus muscle of subjects.
In addition, the soleus muscle tissues were cut out and, after measuring the weight, they were stored in a freezer (-80[degrees]C) for further usage.
To determine the level and distribution of glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) in the soleus muscle, six to eight consecutive sections (100 [micro]m apart) from one specimen were stained for GLUT4.
(7) the tendon of plantaris was found absent as the muscle belly ended in the form of a thin fascia through which it fused with soleus muscle. The muscle may be absent in 10% of human population according to Standring S.
These results tend to be in partly agreement with the research findings from Delwaide and associates [25] in which they found that mild stimulation (2-3 times ST) of the sural nerve caused a brief increase of the soleus muscle's H-reflex, whereas a strong (painful) stimulus caused a brief decrease of the soleus H-reflex.
