  • skeletal muscle is a highly plastic tissue, capable of responding and adapting to a variety of physiological stimuli, e.g., muscle loading and unloading. Multiple functional phenotypes of skeletal muscle exist throughout the body at the same time. For example, muscles required for antigravity support of the skeleton or sustained locomotion are generally slow-contracting, low force-generating, and relatively resistant to fatigue, while other muscles required for quick, powerful movements are… CONTINUE READING
