Fig. 1. Gastrointestinal function is altered in 4-week-old and 12-week-old mdx mice. To assess function, colons were excised from 4-week-old and 12-week-old male C57BL/10 and mdx mice. Fecal pellets were flushed from each colon and assessed for length (A), width (B), and mass (C). Statistical analysis was performed using a Student’s t test. *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001 compared to C57BL/10. n = 6–16/genotype/group. (D) Video imaging of total contraction number in colons from 4-week-old and 12-week-old C57BL/10 and mdx mice fed standard laboratory chow ad libitum. Representative spatiotemporal maps used to generate the data in (D) are shown in (E). Statistical analysis was performed using a Mann-Whitney U test. *P < 0.05 compared to C57BL/10. n = 6–16/genotype/group.
