A totally noninvasive set-up was developed for comprehensive NMR evaluation of mouse skeletal muscle function in vivo. Dynamic pulsed arterial spin labeling-NMRI perfusion and blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) signal measurements were interleaved with (31) P NMRS to measure both vascular response and oxidative capacities during stimulated exercise and subsequent recovery. Force output was recorded with a dedicated ergometer. Twelve exercise bouts were performed. The perfusion, BOLD signal, pH and force-time integral were obtained from mouse legs for each exercise. All reached a steady state after the second exercise, justifying the pointwise summation of the last 10 exercises to compensate for the limited (31) P signal. In this way, a high temporal resolution of 2.5 s was achieved to provide a time constant for phosphocreatine (PCr) recovery (τ(PCr) ). The higher signal-to-noise ratio improved the precision of τ(PCr) measurement [coefficient of variation (CV) = 16.5% vs CV = 49.2% for a single exercise at a resolution of 30 s]. Inter-animal summation confirmed that τ(PCr) was stable at steady state, but shorter (89.3 ± 8.6 s) than after the first exercise (148 s, p < 0.05). This novel experimental approach provides an assessment of muscle vascular response simultaneously to energetic function in vivo. Its pertinence was illustrated by observing the establishment of a metabolic steady state. This comprehensive tool offers new perspectives for the study of muscle pathology in mice models.
