The purpose of this study was to investigate alterations in structural and functional properties in the soleus (SOL) and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles of rats after 1, 2, and 5 wk of tail suspension. Maximal O2 uptake was 19% lower after 5 wk suspension. Loss of muscle mass was greater in SOL (63%) than in EDL (22%) muscle. A reduction of type I distribution was accompanied by an increase of intermediate fiber subgroups (int I in SOL, int II in EDL). The cross-sectional area of all… CONTINUE READING
