Muscle Physiology Test System

 

The Guise lab has 2 muscle physiology testing systems from Aurora Scientific. Stimulation of intact muscles leads to contraction. The force generated is recorded via data acquisition hardware and software for further analyses of muscle function.

 


We are testing muscle function of the extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and soleus muscles in mice with prostate or breast cancer bone metastases and in mouse models of aging and estrogen deprivation therapy.
