... of these mechanisms can be difficult to separate. In this study, we used the western fence lizard, Sceloporus occidentalis , as an ectothermic model to determine whether a reduction in metabolic rate is sufficient to resist muscle atrophy. We induced atrophy through sciatic denervation of the gastrocnemius muscle...

...R. L. Marsh; A. F. Bennett ABSTRACT Sprint velocity of the lizard Sceloporus occidentalis was maximal at preferred body temperature (T b , 35°C). Mean running velocity (V R ) and stride frequency (f) at this temperature were 3·23 ± 0·7 (mean ± S.E.M.) ms −1 and 15·6 ± 0·3 s −1 , respectively. V R...
