The effects of chronic cold exposure on soleus muscle capillarity were examined, particularly in terms of the distribution of arteriolar and venular capillaries and their capillary domain area (CDA) in adult rats exposed to cold for 68 generations (CG; n = 6). These parameters were compared with those obtained from control rats (CON; n = 5) and deacclimatized rats (DCG; n = 4), reared in thermoneutral temperature after being reared for 11 generations in cold. Morphometric data were obtained… CONTINUE READING
