Rodent motor units, muscle fibers, and motor proteins undergo significant aging-related changes. Such changes include spatial organization and physiological properties of fast- and slow-twitch single motor units, regulation of contractile speed and force generation capacity at the muscle fiber level, and altered functional properties of the motor protein(More)
The rat is the most extensively characterized species with regard to regulation of muscle contraction and myofibrillar protein isoform expression, but there is reason to question whether results from small mammals, such as the rat, can be extrapolated directly to larger mammals, such as man. Studies of human muscle contraction have primarily used different(More)
