Abstract

The muscles from twelve mouse hind limbs were analyzed for architectural or histomorphometric properties (n = 394). These characteristics were examined for their descriptive/discriminative value between functional groups and their functional significance. Groups were found to be primarily identified by their fiber length, muscle length and pennation angle. Fiber length and muscle mass were found to be the primary determinants of function.
