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) ...
Ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) affects the excitable and contractile properties of innervated skeletal muscles
(Society of Biology of Chile, 2003)
The well-established trophic role of CNTF upon neurons led to performing clinical trials in patients of neurodegenerative diseases. However, trials were suspended due to side effects such as severe weight loss, hyperalgesia, ...
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 ...
CTGF/CCN-2 over-expression can directly induce features of skeletal muscle dystrophy
Muscular dystrophies are diseases characterized by muscle weakness together with cycles of degeneration and regeneration of muscle fibres, resulting in a progressive decrease of muscle mass, diminished muscle force generation ...
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)
Histochemical study of muscle fiber types in Synbranchus marmoratus Bloch, 1795
The myotomal muscle of Synbranchus marmoratus was investigated using histochemical and immunohistochemical reactions. This musculature is composed of a superficial red compartment, uniformly distributed around the trunk ...
