Autophagy-related genes during aging in SOL and EDL: (a) mRNA expression levels of Map1lc3 (LC3), (b) Sqstm1/p62, and (c) Atg5 in young and old slow (SOL) and fast-twitch muscle fibers (EDL). Six mice were used from each group. Statistical significance was given as follows (Mann-Whitney test). Values are presented as
