Effects of Long-Term Stimulation on Skeletal Muscle Phenotype Expression and Collagen/Fibrillin Distribution

Abstract

The effects of chronic electrical stimulation on muscle fiber phenotype and metabolism are well known, but its impact on the extracellular matrix is poorly understood. Material properties of skeletal muscle are largely influenced by the viscoelastic properties of connective tissues which occupy the interstitium. Changes in collagen and fibrillin content may… (More)
