  • Exercise affects the growth of the dorsal longitudinal flight muscles in the tsetse fly. Examination of electron micrographs of flight muscles taken from flies subjected to enforced exercise, “ormal” exercise and no exercise reveals that both mitochondrial and myofibrillar fractions of the muscles are stimulated to grow at a faster rate by enforced exercise but that the mitochondria respond more rapidly.
