Morphology of long-term denervated rat soleus muscle and the effect of chronic electrical stimulation.


1. Rat soleus muscles were denervated for 6-10 months; some of these were chronically stimulated for the last 3-8 weeks before recording. The muscles were fixed at physiological lengths and embedded in epoxy resin. 2. Sections for light microscopy were stained with p-phenylenediamine. Denervation reduced the mean cross-sectional area of fibres to 3% of… (More)
