Identification of morphological markers of sarcopenia at early stage of aging in skeletal muscle of mice
The gastrocnemiusmuscle (GM) of young (3months) and aged (12 months) femalewild-type C57/BL6 micewas examined by light and electron microscopy, looking for the presence of structural changes at early stage of the aging process.Morphometrical parameters including body and gastrocnemius weights, number and type ofmuscle fibers, cross section area (CSA), perimeter, and Feret's diameter of single muscle fiber,were measured.Moreover, lengths of the ... إقراء المزيد
