Abstract: Physical exercise may help maintain muscle properties and functional improvement after peripheral nerve lesion, which may be enhanced by using biocompatible substances, such as sericin. The aim of this study was analyse the effect of sericin associated with swimming exercise on the phenotype, innervation, and functionality of the plantar muscle of Wistar rats. Forty randomly divided adult rats were used in five groups of eight animals: control, injury, sericin, exercise, exercise and sericin. The application o… Show more

“…The forelimb strength was measured by the grip strength test using the grip strength meter 47200 (UgoBasile, Varese, Italy) according to the previous described method [11]. The rat was placed in front of the T-bar to hold the T-bar with the forefoot.…”

“…Regular exercise can contribute to suppressing pathogenic infections by enhancing antigen-specific immune responses [9,10]. Swimming exercise improves muscle endurance, pro-motes anti-inflammatory action and has a neuroprotective effect [11,12]. Compared to running, swimming can improve molecular adaptation, causing more neuroprotective effects [13].…”

“…Regarding morphometric analysis, by the measurements of area and smaller diameter, it is evident that all injury groups presented atrophy of muscle fibers. Santana et al 1,15 observed, in a similar model of nerve injury, muscle fibers characteristics of tropism, with reduction in strength and phenotypic changes. In our study, only the group using 830 nm obtained a higher result than the injury group for the area of muscle fibers, observing a small evolution.…”

“…The assessment of the muscular weight, fibers type and protein concentration indicates that the intense swimming (2 hr day, 5 days week during 3 weeks with load) was not able to improve the reinnervation repair in a denervated muscle after sciatic crush model ( Herbison et al, 1974 ). Swimming exercise stated on the 3rd day after sciatic crush, during 3 weeks and progressive time of 15, 20, and 25 min with an overload of 10% of the BW, did not affect the area of muscle fibers and neuromuscular junctions of the plantar muscle ( Santana et al, 2018 ).…”
