muscle mass in young female mice ( Ihemelandu 1981 ). We previously reported that E 2 replacement decreases the muscle mass in young OVX mice ( Ogawa et al . 2011 ). However, the mechanism by which E 2 decreases skeletal muscle mass in young females is

energy expenditure varies considerably based on the amount of lean mass that an individual possesses ( Mifflin et al . 1990 , Nelson et al . 1992 , Taguchi et al . 2011 ). Based on estimates for the energy required to maintain the muscle fractional

measured by liquid-phase radioimmunoassay. Muscle mass The soleus, extensor digitorum longus (EDL), and gastrocnemius muscles from both hindlimbs were weighed and mass of left and right muscles was summed and presented in the Results section

Introduction Male mammals generally have a larger body size and muscle mass than females and, in mice, this arises from a faster rate of growth of muscle and bone before epiphysial closure ( Griffin & Goldspink 1973 , Callewaert et al

( Tchirikov et al . 1998 , Yajnik 2004 ). As a result, skeletal muscle growth is restricted. In IUGR fetuses and neonates, body composition analyses show 25–40% reductions in muscle mass when compared to appropriate-for-gestational age counterparts ( Yau

Introduction Two distinct phases of myogenesis in utero establish fetal skeletal muscle mass. After the scaffold of primary myofibers is established during the embryonic period, secondary myogenesis occurs from the proliferation and fusion
