Nitric oxide (NO) has various roles in the skeletal musculature in both normal and pathological conditions. NO primarily activates soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) and mediates subsequent intracellular signaling in target cells. We sought to identify the target cells of NO in the rat skeletal musculature, using subtypes of sGCalpha1 and sGCbeta1 antibodies.(More)
The rat controls the form of its tail, from straight to curved, by contraction and relaxation of its four tail muscles. The tendons of these muscles insert on any of the cranial articular, transverse, and hemal processes of each of 24 coccygeal vertebrae (Co5-Co28). In this study, we isolated for the four coccygeal muscles each muscular fascicle segment(More)
