Fig. 3. The distal colon of mdx mice exhibits reduced diameter which is attenuated by administration of L-arginine. Resting colon diameter (mm) and constricted colon diameter (mm) during the control recording period were measured for the proximal colon, the mid-colon, and the distal colon after video recording and spatiotemporal mapping of colons excised from C57BL/10 and mdx mice receiving either the control diet (A, E) or a diet supplemented with 1% L-alanine (B, F), L-citrulline (C, G), or L-arginine (D, H) respectively. Statistical analysis was performed using a 2-way ANOVA with a Bonferonni’s post-hoc multiple comparisons test to determine the effects of genotype and colon region. **P < 0.01 relative to C57BL/10 control; n = 9–12/genotype/group.
