Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the hypertrophic effects of low-intensity exercise on weight, myofibrillar protein content and Type I, II fiber cross-sectional area of hindlimb muscles of rats between every other day exercise and every day exercise. Methods: Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were assigned to 1 of 3 groups: control group (C, n = 6), experimental group 1 (E1, n = 7) and experimental group 2 (E2, n = 7). Rats in E1 group had 7 sessions (every other day) and those in…

Effect of short-term Undernutrition on Hindlimb Muscles in Rats
Hindlimb muscle atrophy occurs from the short-term undernutrition in undernourished rats, with significant decreases at 6 days after undernutrition.

Exercise recovers Parkinson's disease induced dopaminergic neuron loss and contralateral soleus muscle atrophy and inactivates GSK3β by phosphorylation which may be involved in the neuroprotective effect of exercise on the 6-OHDA-induced cell death.


Effect of endurance exercise during acute stage on hindlimb muscles of stroke induced rat
It can be suggested that endurance exercise during acute stage of stroke can reduce muscle atrophy related to denervation, inactivity and undernutrition.
Hindlimb Muscle Atrophy of Rat Induced by Neuropathic Pain
The neuropathic pain group showed a significant decreases in body weight, food intake, muscle weight and Type I and II fiber cross-sectional area of the dissected muscles of the Neuropathic pain model rat.
Effect of inactivity and undernutrition after acute ischemic stroke in a rat hindlimb muscle model.
Hindlimb muscle atrophy occurs in both affected and unaffected sides after acute stroke, with Type I muscle changes more apparent than Type II changes.
Alterations in skeletal muscle related to impaired physical mobility: an empirical model.
The ISC model is the preferred animal model to address nursing questions of impaired physical mobility and the resulting skeletal muscle atrophy and produces a less severe atrophy while maintaining animal mobility and health.
Effects of exercise intensity on food intake and appetite in women.
The results suggest that HIE increases energy intake in women.
Skeletal muscle adaptation: training twice every second day vs. training once daily.
In conclusion, the present study suggests that training twice every second day may be superior to daily training.
A decade of aerobic endurance training: histological evidence for fibre type transformation.
It is revealed that endurance training may promote a transition from type II to type I muscle fibre types and occurs at the expense of the type II fibre population.
Fibre type composition of soleus and extensor digitorum longus muscles in normal female inbred Lewis rats.
The content of slow fibres in the soleus muscle of female inbred Lewis rats was slightly higher than that reported for Wistar rats, but was considerably higher than those of Sprague-Dawley rats, whereas substantial differences were not found in the proportion of slow and fast fibre types in EDL muscles in these strains.
Proteomic analysis of rat soleus muscle undergoing hindlimb suspension‐induced atrophy and reweighting hypertrophy
Together these data demonstrate that coordinated temporally regulated changes in the skeletal muscle proteome occur during disuse‐induced soleus muscle atrophy and reweighting hypertrophy.
Effect of high- and low-intensity exercise and metabolic acidosis on levels of GH, IGF-I, IGFBP-3 and cortisol.
It was shown that the diminished acidosis during HIT (B) attenuates the cortisol and hGH response, and suggests that HIT/acidosis is a stimulus for exercise-induced cortisol/hGH secretion, but not for IGF-1 and IGFBP-3 under these experimental conditions.
