  • We report that the subcellular storage location of IMCL is altered by limb immobilization, highlighting the need to evaluate IMCL storage location when assessing the effects of disuse on IMCL content. We also found that AKT content increased during immobilization in our female population, contrary to studies in males finding that AKT decreases during disuse, highlighting that men and women may respond differently to disuse and the necessity to include women in all research.
