EDL Time course of Contraction. Bar chart showing the evolution of the two parameters of the time course of contraction, among the different experimental groups. TTP:time-to-peak and HRT:Half-relaxation-time. Immature EDL is a slow muscle, but progressively its contraction is shortened in order to attain the fast profile of the adult animal. Crush disrupts this process and the muscle remains slow in all developmental stages.
