The study was aimed at demonstrating gender differences in the numbers, diameters and cross-section areas of muscle fibres for three hindlimb skeletal muscles responsible for locomotion and maintenance of body posture: soleus, tibialis anterior and flexor digitorum brevis in rats. The experiments were performed on five 6-month-old male and female Wistar rats. In both genders, all studied muscles of the right and left hindlimbs were isolated from surrounding tissues and excised for further… CONTINUE READING
