In vivo effect of STS on skeletal muscle metabolism. In the upper part, on the left, skeletal muscle parametric maps of representative control (CTR) and 48-h starved (STS) mice are shown; representative images of basal metabolic activity of hind limbs skeletal muscle expressed in average standardized uptake value (SUV) are shown on the right. In the bottom, graphs of hind limbs skeletal muscle metabolic rate of glucose (SM-MRGlu*; nmol × min−1 × g−1) and SUV are displayed, respectively. Results indicate mean ± SD of nine mice per group; green bars represent control value, and blue bars represent STS value
