Growth of the White-Mouse Gastrocnemius Muscle I . In Terrestrial Gravity


The gastrocnemius muscle from white mice (Swiss Webster, female; NLW, male and female; varying in age from 6 to 13 weeks and in body mass from 8 to 36 gm) were analyzed by means of Huxley's Equation for Heterauxic Growth where double logarithmic plots were performed of muscle size as a function of body mass. These mice had been grown in normal gravity… (More)
