The weight of gastrocnemius and soleus muscles
also recorded and showed no difference between treatment (LI, MI, HI) and control (Figure 4b).
In relation to the soleus muscle
, there was a significant increase in the fibers of all the trained groups (ATS, ATT, RTW, and RTC) in relation to group C (p>0.01).
Despite no difference in EDL morphology, the soleus muscle
displayed atrophy after the long RET protocol.
The TPTT was found significantly longer in isolated soleus muscle
but not in EDL muscle of diabetic group.
The wet weight of excised EDL and soleus muscles
was measured and was not significantly different between groups (Figure 2(d)).
(e) Representative images of immunofluorescence staining of soleus muscles
in Con and hindlimb unloading (3, 7, and 14 days) group using anti-laminin (red) antibody.
Three to four hours later (i.e., 1400-1500 hours), the mice were sacrificed by decapitation 20 min after insulin injection, and then soleus muscles
Serial transverse 10 [micro]m thick sections of soleus muscles
were cut in a cryostat cooled to -20[degrees] C and stained with hematoxylin and eosin.
Capillary density in soleus muscle
of control and diabetic group were 17.45 [+ or -] 0.92 and 26.15 [+ or -] 1.37/[mm.sup.2], respectively (P < 0.05).
INTRODUCTION: The soleus muscle
arises primarily by two heads, which are united by a tendinous arch.
At the end of each acute experiment (7 weeks after the initial nerve crush on day 5 of the age), the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles
on both sides were dissected out and weighted separately.
