The effect of hypodynamia during 9, 30, 60 and 90 days on the striated muscle m. gastrocnemius in Japanese quails was studied. We have found different developed dystrophic changes of mitochondria, myofibrils and sarcotubular system. Changes of the studied tissue caused by hypodynamia in the first two groups (9 and 30 days hypodynamy) are the reaction to stress and developing situation. Gradually Japanese quails have come up to the influence of the hypodynamia (60 days hypodynamia). In the last experimental group deposit changes were observed (90 days hypodynamia). In comparison with control group we have found perturbations considered as non-specific, short-term and reversible
