Body weight gain, soleus muscle weight/body weight ratio, footprint analysis, and oxidative biomarker data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey's post hoc test.
This altered expression of autophagy gene is more obvious in soleus muscles, since soleus muscle has a characteristic to work as a tonic muscle with higher autophagy activities compared to phasic muscle (gastrocnemius).
Regarding the soleus muscle, aerobic training in the aquatic environment (ATS) was responsible for generating greater hypertrophy than treadmill training (ATT).
These changes suggest that the soleus muscle adapts well to reperfusion injury to maintain its function and mechanism of contraction (Table 1).
Citrate synthase activity, used as an index of aerobic ET, was determined spectrophotometrically in mixed soleus muscle [21].
Biochemical Measurements in Serum and Soleus Muscle. An enzymatic colorimetric kit was used to measure serum glucose (Bioclin[R], Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil).
EDL and soleus muscles were dissected from the proximal to distal tendon, and each tendon was tied off with 4-0 surgical grade sutures.
To further evaluate HU-induced atrophy, frozen sections of soleus muscle from the control and unloaded mice were immunostained with antilaminin (Figure 1(e)).
Based on this assumption, the question for this study is that "Can resistance exercise alter irisin levels and the expression of FNDC5 gene in the soleus muscle tissues and the UCP1 gene in the abdominal subcutaneous white adipose tissues of Sprague Dawley male rats?
The soleus muscle contains two heads, one that originates on the posterior aspect of the tibia, and the other which originates on the posterior aspect of the fibula.
To collect the soleus muscle, mice were sacrificed by decapitation 20 min after i.p.
Normally, the myotendinous junction of plantaris occurs approximately at the level of origin of soleus muscle from tibia in the proximal part of leg, the long tendon passes between the medial head of gastrocnemius and soleus, continues along the medial aspect of tendocalcaneus for its insertion on calcaneum either independently or in association with tendocalcaneum, Andreo A Spina DC.
Finally, we observed significant increment in sphingosine-1-phosphate content after high-fat diet feeding only in soleus muscle. Treatment with myriocin significantly decreased S1P concentrations in both soleus and red gastrocnemius muscles, but not in white gastrocnemius muscle (Figure 5, p < 0.05 and p < 0.05, resp.).
The effect of TENS, administered via non-invasive surface electrodes to acupoints in the leg, on H-reflex of the soleus muscle has not been previously studied.
