Functional Overload Enhances Satellite Cell Properties in Skeletal Muscle

Figure 4

Changes in Notch, Wnt, and Sox expression following functional overload. (a, b, c) Expression levels of Notch signaling-related genes, Wnt signaling-related genes, and Sox genes. Amounts of Hes1 and HeyL (a), Wnt3 and R-spondin1 (b), and Sox8 and Sox11 (c) mRNAs in the plantaris were measured by qRT-PCR analysis. Target mRNA expressions were normalized to that of RPL32 and then plotted as the expression ratio relative to control group. All values are expressed as mean ± SDM . Significant differences: compared to control group .
