In this study, it was shown that calcium levels in the fibers of m. soleus of Mongolian gerbils after one day of unloading increased four and a half times in comparison with the control. In rats, the situation differed: 2.8 times increase after the 1st day of hypogravity persisted until the 3rd day and then calcium levels slightly decreased to the 12th day. However, the base concentrations of calcium in the control group of gerbils were significantly lower than in control rats, thus there was… CONTINUE READING
