To test functional properties of regenerating skeletal muscle, the triceps surae muscles of l-month-old rats were minced into l-mm3 pieces and replaced. Myogenie cells originating from the degenerating implanted muscle fragments form a model of the original muscle and contractile activity is first detected after 7-8 days. Early regenerates exhibited… CONTINUE READING
