Motoneurons innervating two regions of rat medial gastrocnemius muscle with differing contractile and histochemical properties.

Abstract

The medial gastrocnemius (MG) muscle, which receives its innervation by two extramuscular nerve branches, is representative of muscles which show a particular form of muscle compartmentalization (i.e. a regional specialization of muscle fibers) in which there is a 'deep' oxidative region and a 'superficial' low-oxidative region. Differential recruitment of… (More)
