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)
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 ...
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) ...
Myostatin and follistatin expression in skeletal muscles of rats with chronic heart failure
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2010-02-01)
P>Skeletal muscle abnormalities can contribute to decreased exercise capacity in heart failure. Although muscle atrophy is a common alteration in heart failure, the mechanisms responsible for muscle mass reduction are not ...
Fueling the engine: induction of AMP-activated protein kinase in trout skeletal muscle by swimming
(Company of Biologists, 2014-05)
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is well known to be induced by exercise and to mediate important metabolic changes in the skeletal muscle of mammals. Despite the physiological importance of exercise as a modulator of ...
Mouse extensor digitorum longus and soleus show distinctive ultrastructural changes induced by veratrine
We investigated whether veratrine (5 μl, 10 ng/kg) injected into the mouse extensor digitorum longus (EDL) (fast-twitch) and soleus (SOL) (slow-twitch) muscles provokes distinctive ultrastructural disturbances 15, 30 and ...
Estrogen supplementation failed to attenuate biochemical indices of neutrophil infiltration or damage in rat skeletal muscles following ischemia
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2005)
