Muscle phenotypes in young and old mdx and Galgt1 -deficient mdx muscles. (A) Hematoxylin and eosin staining of cross sections of gastrocnemius muscle in young (6 weeks) and old (6 months) mdx and Galgt1 −/− mdx animals. (B) Average percentage central nuclei in mdx and Galgt1 −/− mdx gastrocnemius at 6 weeks and 6 months of age. (C) Average Mini-Feret myofiber diameters in mdx and Galgt1 −/− mdx gastrocnemius muscle at 6 weeks and 6 months of age. (D) Average percentage of non-muscle area present in muscle sections in mdx and Galgt1 −/−mdx muscles at 6 weeks and 6 months of age. Errors in (B)(D) are SEM from six muscles per condition with 1,600–3,200 total myofibers counted per condition. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, NS not significant, Bar is 50 μm.
