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 ...
The C57Bl/6 mouse serves as a suitable model of human skeletal muscle mitochondrial function
It is debatable whether differences in mitochondrial function exist across skeletal muscle types and whether mouse skeletal muscle mitochondrial function can serve as a valid model for human skeletal muscle mitochondrial function…
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 ...
Ion pathways in transverse tubules. Quantification of receptors in membranes isolated from frog and rabbit skeletal muscle
The presence of four cation pathways in membrane vesicles isolated from transverse tubules of frog and rabbit skeletal muscle was studied by measuring binding of specific blockers. Transverse tubules purified from frog ...
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 ...
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 ...
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) ...
