Contractile properties of aged avian muscle after stretch-overload.


The effects of ageing on muscle contractile adaptations to stretch-overload was examined in the anterior latissimus dorsi (ALD) muscle of 12 old (90 weeks of age) and 12 young adult (10 weeks of age) Japanese quails. A weight corresponding to 12% of the birds' body weight was attached to one wing for 30 days, while the contralateral wing served as the intra… (More)
