Abstract

The effect of dietary administration of clenbuterol on soleus and extensor digitorum longus muscles was studied after 4 and 21 days. Both muscles showed an increase in wet weight with no significant change in total fibre number. After 4 days fibre cross-sectional areas were increased in soleus, but not in extensor digitorum longus, and after 21 days there was a change in fibre frequencies in extensor digitorum longus but not soleus muscles.
