The effect of malaria and anti-malarial drugs on skeletal and cardiac muscles
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Abstract Malaria remains one of the most important infectious diseases in the world, being a significant public health problem associated with poverty and it is one of the main obstacles to the economy of ...
Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF) affects the excitable and contractile properties of innervated skeletal muscles
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2003)
Exercise-induced muscle damage and running economy in humans
Running economy (RE), defined as the energy demand for a given velocity of submaximal running, has been identified as a critical factor of overall distance running performance. Plyometric and resistance trainings, performed ...
Stretch Injuries of Skeletal Muscles: Experimental Study in Rats' Soleus Muscle
(Soc Chilena Anatomia, 2009-12-01)
The study aimed to verify the physiological injury behavior by stretching the soleus muscle of rats, using a noninvasive experimental model. Twenty-four rats were used and divided into three groups of eight animals: control ...
Rho-kinase activity is upregulated in the skeletal muscle of aged exercised rats
There is a gap in the knowledge regarding the regulation of glucose uptake in skeletal muscle during the development of insulin resistance in the elderly. Rho-Kinase (Rock) signaling has been demonstrated as a crucial ...
Morphological aspects of muscle regeneration in the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)
The aim of our study was to analyze the morphological events in the skeletal muscle of the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) after a traumatic lesion. Thirty-two fish were used, on which a small longitudinal incision ...
Fractal Analysis of Skeletal Muscle Tissue of Rats Subjected to Stretch Injury
(Soc Chilena Anatomia, 2015-09-01)
The aim of this study was to analyze changes in the skeletal muscle tissue of rats after muscle stretch injury using fractal analysis. Nineteen rats were divided into three groups, Control (n=5) (C), Lesion two days (n=7) ...
Histoenzymological and ultrastructural changes in lateral muscle fibers of Oreochromis niloticus (Teleostei: Cichlidae) after local injection of veratrine
The effects of veratrine have been investigated in mammalian, amphibian, and crustacean muscle, but not in fish. In this work, the action of veratrine was studied in the lateral muscle of the freshwater teleost Oreochromis ...
Electromyographic analysis of the arm muscles in back support exercises
This study aims at quantifying through electromyography the actions of the biceps brachii-BB (long head), tríceps brachii- TB (long head) and deltoideus-DA (clavicular portion) muscles, during the going (G) and return (R) ...
