• ischaemia
  • Objective This study was designed to evaluate the contribution of apelin to the therapeutic efficacy of mesenchymal stem cells in hindlimb ischaemia mice. (bmj.com)
  • Conclusions Apelin has beneficial effects on the therapeutic efficacy and survival maintenance of mesenchymal stem cells in hindlimb ischaemia and might constitute an important therapy target in cardiovascular disease. (bmj.com)
  • Muscles
  • These analyses offer new insight into quadrupedal locomotion, clarifying how the moments generated by hindlimb muscles modulate mechanical energy at different locomotor speeds and grades, as needed to accommodate the demands of variable terrain. (biologists.org)
  • hindlimbs
  • Here we genetically characterise pelvic finless, a naturally occurring model of hindlimb loss in zebrafish that lacks pelvic fin structures, which are homologous to tetrapod hindlimbs, but displays no other abnormalities. (garvan.org.au)
