..., including cardiovascular function, swimming, migration and foraging, and dominates the energy used by active fishes ( Gerry and Ellerby, 2014 ). Hence, impaired muscle performance, or marked changes in muscle efficiency, with changes in temperature could limit thermal tolerance and temperature-dependent...

... backward arm cranking as an unselected control, our results indicate the presence of pronounced male-biased sexual dimorphism in muscle performance for protracting the arm to propel the fist forward. We also compared overhead pulling force between males and females, to test the alternative hypothesis...

... mechanistic understanding of how this metabolic disease phenotype affects fitness of male L. pulchella in vivo , we examined infection effects on in situ muscle performance and molecular traits relevant to dragonfly flight performance in nature. Importantly, these traits were previously shown to be affected...

... was performing work was significantly higher at 15°C than at 25°C, regardless of acclimation conditions. Muscle therefore consumed significantly more oxygen at 15°C for a given work output than at 25°C, and plastic responses did not modify this thermodynamic effect. The metabolic cost of muscle performance...

Thus, Tnt isoform composition in striated muscle is responsive to both weight-sensing and nutrition-sensing mechanisms, with consequent effects...
