Title:Characterization of the Mouse as a Model for Ground-Based Musculoskeletal Spaceflight Research
Author(s):Gardner, John Russell
Doctoral Committee Chair(s):Joan Dawson; Bahr, Janice
Department / Program:Molecular and Integrative Physiology

Degree:Ph.D.
Genre:Dissertation
Subject(s):Biology, Animal Physiology
Abstract:In summary, this work describes the successful use of the mouse as an experimental animal for ground-based spaceflight research. Changes induced by simulated-microgravity in muscle and bone morphology and composition can be readily studied without actual spaceflight using hindlimb-suspension.
