Variation of phospholamban in slow-twitch muscle sarcoplasmic reticulum between mammalian species and a link to the substrate specificity of endogenous Ca(2+)-calmodulin-dependent protein kinase.
Systematic immunological and biochemical studies indicate that the level of expression of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca(2+)-ATPase regulatory protein phospholamban (PLB) in mammalian slow-twitchExpand

Ca(2+)-dependent interaction of triadin with histidine-rich Ca(2+)-binding protein carboxyl-terminal region.
A direct binding of HRC (histidine-rich Ca(2+)-binding protein) to triadin, the main transmembrane protein of the junctional sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) of skeletal muscle, seems well supported.Expand

Tubular aggregates: Sarcoplasmic reticulum origin, calcium storage ability, and functional implications
Muscle biopsy specimens from three patients with an autosomal dominant myopathy and tubular aggregates in both type 1 and type 2 fibers16 were investigated for immunofluorescent staining withExpand

Ratio of dihydropyridine to ryanodine receptors in mammalian and frog twitch muscles in relation to the mechanical hypothesis of excitation-contraction coupling.
An indirect argument in favour of the mechanical hypothesis of excitation-contraction (EC) coupling [Schneider & Chandler (1973) Nature 242, 244-246] is the fixed stoichiometry between theExpand

Terminal cisternae of denervated rabbit skeletal muscle: alterations of functional properties of Ca2+ release channels.
Terminal cisternae (TC) of skeletal muscle represent the specialized compartment from which Ca2+ is released into the myoplasm after a propagated action potential. In this study we have investigatedExpand

Identification of triadin and of histidine-rich Ca(2+)-binding protein as substrates of 60 kDa calmodulin-dependent protein kinase in junctional terminal cisternae of sarcoplasmic reticulum of rabbit
The endogenous calmodulin-protein kinase system of sarcoplasmic reticulum terminal cisternae of rabbit fast-twitch muscle was studied. Investigation of a single Ca(2+)-channel in terminal cisternaeExpand

Coexpression of two isoforms of calsequestrin in rabbit slow-twitch muscle
SummaryThe cardiac and fast-twitch skeletal muscle forms of the Ca2+ -binding protein calsequestrin (CS) are the products of two different genes, both of which are transcribed in slow-twitch skeletalExpand

Interaction of triadin with histidine-rich Ca2+-binding protein at the triadic junction in skeletal muscle fibers
The present study documents the binding interaction of skeletal muscle sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) transmembrane protein triadin with peripheral histidine-rich, Ca2+-binding protein (HCP). InExpand

Early biochemical consequences of denervation in fast and slow skeletal muscles and their relationship to neural control over muscle differentiation.
1. One week after denervation several biochemical characteristics of the fast extensor digitorum longus and slow soleus muscles from adult rats were investigated and compared with the characteristicsExpand
