Grip test force (mN/g)207.4 ± 6.6228.3 ± 20.9208.5 ± 5.5221.8 ± 11.3
Treadmill exhaustion time (%)100.0 ± 6.9133.8 ± 14.7*100.3 ± 16.7100.4 ± 9.7
  • Grip test performance is expressed as generated force (mN) relative to mouse body mass (g). Endurance was evaluated by time to exhaustion in treadmill running at increasing speeds and is expressed relative to the exhaustion time of WT sedentary mice (37.6 ± 2.6 min).

  • * P < 0.05 relative to sedentary.
