The effects of clenbuterol beta(2)-agonist administration were investigated in normal and atrophied [15-day hindlimb-unloaded (HU)] rat soleus muscles. We showed that clenbuterol had a specific effect on muscle tissue, since it reduces soleus atrophy induced by HU. The study of Ca(2+) activation properties of single skinned fibers revealed that clenbuterol(More)
The beta(2)-adrenergic agonist clenbuterol is known for its anabolic action on normal and atrophied muscles. The aim of this work was to evaluate if chronic clenbuterol administration could prevent alterations in the locomotor activity induced by hindlimb suspension. The effects of clenbuterol were evaluated in three studies: muscle morphological(More)
