We showed that myoglobin gene transcription and the appearance of myoglobin occur very early in myogenesis, in both humans and mice. In contrast to the contractile protein genes, there is a subsequent increase of 50- to 100-fold in myoglobin mRNA and protein levels during later muscle development. Myoglobin and myoglobin mRNA are present at elevated levels(More)
Echinocytes were frequently found in patients with liver disease when their blood was examined in wet films, but rarely detected in dried, stained smears. When normal erythrocytes (discocytes) were incubated with physiologic concentrations of the abnormal high density lipoproteins (HDL) from some jaundiced patients, echinocytosis developed within seconds.(More)
The molecular cloning of cDNA for the human muscle specific carbonic anhydrase CAIII is described. The recombinant was isolated from a human muscle cDNA library prepared in the expression vector lambda gt11, and was characterized by hybridization selection and immunoprecipitation. A comparison of insert cDNA and mRNA sizes suggests that the cDNA is full(More)
The mRNA products of four genes, carbonic anhydrase III (CAIII), fast myosin heavy chain (MHCf), actin and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), were assayed by Northern and slot-blot analysis in rabbit tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum longus muscles that were subjected to electrical stimulation for periods of up to 21 days. Marked(More)
Carbonic anhydrase III (CAIII) protein and mRNA amounts in fast- and slow-twitch rat muscles were examined after resection of the sciatic nerve. Striking changes occur in the fast-twitch anterior tibialis (AT) and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles, where CAIII protein and mRNA are increased several-fold 16 days after denervation. The data suggest that(More)
