(n.) Equal distance.
(1) We counted all type I fibers and determined type I and II mean fiber areas in eight equidistant sections taken along the length of control and overloaded MG. Increase in muscle weights (31%), as well as in total muscle cross-sectional areas (37%) and fiber areas (type I, 57%; type II, 34%), attested to a significant hypertrophic response in overloaded MG. An increase in type I fiber composition of MG from 7.0 to 11.5% occurred as a result of overload, with the greatest and only statistically significant changes (approximately 70-100%) being found in sections taken from the most rostral 45% of the muscle length.
(2) The rocky islets lie roughly equidistant between the Japanese and South Korean mainland in a stretch of water referred to as the East Sea by Koreans.
(3) The first formula is based on three simultaneous pressure measurements performed at equidistant points; the remaining three equations are original, and make use of only two of the three pressure measurements together with a no-flow condition at the terminal tube section.
(4) Microelectrode techniques were used to measure in vitro action potential and refractory period durations of the canine proximal right and left bundle branches equidistant from the distal bundle of His.
