Calcium Fluxes in Work-Related Muscle Disorder: Implications from a Rat Model

Figure 4

(a) SR vesicle Ca2+ release rates for each muscle from each group and limb. The only significant differences were decreased levels in Flex and Supra muscles of each limb, compared to the Ext muscles of HRHF-RL and FRC-R limbs (). (b) SR vesicle Ca2+ uptake rates, shown as the inverse rate constant (Tau) for muscle. HRHF rats showed higher rates (slower inverse rates) than FRC rats, overall (), particularly in the Ext muscle of the HRHF-SL limbs, compared to the FRC-L limbs (). ANOVA results are shown in individual panels as mean ± SEM.
