In this study, whole body insulin action on glucose uptake and muscle glucose transporter number of rats subjected to 14 days of physical inactivity conditions was examined. Unlike other suspension and denervation models of muscle disuse, this physical inactivity model allows voluntary contractile activity with minimal stress. Minimal depression of body weight gain and significant depression of gastrocnemius muscle growth were observed compared with that of control rats after 14 days of… CONTINUE READING
