Thyroidal trophic effects on slow-twitch skeletal muscle properties were compared in normally innervated and denervated soleus of rats maintained at different thyroid states. Hypothyroidism caused fast to slow changes in fiber type composition (99% decrease in proportion of type II fibers), ATPase activities (down 20-30%), myosin light chain pattern (54%(More)
The amount of phosphoryl creatine (PC) hydrolysed during a ten-second isometric contraction was measured in the biceps brachii (fast) and soleus (slow) muscles of adult normal and dystrophic mice (Re 129 strain) following inhibition of glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation. The dystrophic muscles were found to have a lower isometric economy (tension-time(More)
