It is well known that eccentric exercise induces muscle damage by disrupting the sarcolemma. The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of downhill running on several locomotor and respiratory muscles of normal and mdx mice. Degenerating muscle fibers in the skeletal muscles of mice were visualized by in vivo staining with Evans blue. This dye injected intravenously stained only degenerating muscle fibers which were visible as blue fibers macroscopically and could also be seen as red… CONTINUE READING
