Figure 2

Morphometrical capillarity parameters in fast muscle of exercised and non-exercised adult zebrafish. Parameters measured were: CD, capillary density (capillaries/mm2) (A); NCF, number of capillaries in contact with each fibre (B); CCA, relationship between NCF and the FCSA (NCF · 103/FCSA) (C); CCP, relationship between NCF and the FPER (NCF · 102/FPER) (D); C/F, capillary-to-fibre ratio (CD/FD) (E) and MDD, maximal diffusion distance between the capillary and the centre of the fibre (F). Statistical significance values between non-exercised and exercised zebrafish: *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001. Values are mean ± SEM from a sample size of n = 8 for each condition.
