Additional file 3: Figure S3. of Muscle-specific deletion of SOCS3 increases the early inflammatory response but does not affect regeneration after myotoxic injury

Myosin heavy chain gene expression and muscle fiber oxidative capacity in muscles from uninjured control and SOCS3 MKO mice. qRT-PCR using primers to detect MyHCIIb (A), MyHCIIx (B), MyHCI (C), and MyHCIIa (D) was performed on RNA extracted from snap frozen muscles following dissection. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM and compared with an unpaired two-tailed Student’s t test. n = 8 mice/genotype. (E) Representative succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)-reacted TA muscle sections from uninjured muscles of 12-week-old control and SOCS3 MKO mice. Quantification of SDH intensity was determined by analysis of SDH reacted TA muscle sections. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM and compared with an unpaired two-tailed Student’s t test. n = 5 mice/genotype. Scale bar = 100 μm. (PDF 145 kb)
