Contractile properties of diaphragm muscle segments from old mdx and old transgenic mdx mice.


Diaphragm muscles of young (4- to 6-mo-old) mdx mice show severe fiber necrosis and have normalized forces and powers 60 and 46% of the values for control C57BL/10 mice. In contrast, microinjection of mdx mouse embryos with a truncated dystrophin minigene has produced young transgenic mdx (tg-mdx) mice with a level of dystrophin expression and structural… (More)
