Type IIx myosin heavy chain transcripts are expressed in type IIb fibers of human skeletal muscle.
Several members of the sarcomeric myosin heavy chain (MHC) gene family have been mapped in the human genome but many of them have not yet been identified. In this study we report the identificationExpand

Developmental myosins: expression patterns and functional significance
Developing skeletal muscles express unique myosin isoforms, including embryonic and neonatal myosin heavy chains, coded by the myosin heavy chain 3 (MYH3) and MYH8 genes, respectively, and myosinExpand

Adaptive potential of human biceps femoris muscle demonstrated by histochemical, immunohistochemical and mechanomyographical methods
The goal of this study was to estimate the ability of biceps femoris (BF) muscle, a hamstring muscle crucial for biarticulate movement, to adapt to changed functional demands. For this purpose andExpand

Fibre type composition of soleus and extensor digitorum longus muscles in normal female inbred Lewis rats.
We have analysed the fibre type composition of soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles of normal female 4-6-month-old inbred Lewis rats. This rat strain is used in our ongoing study of theExpand

The effect of a unilateral muscle transplantation on the muscle fiber type and the MyHC isoform content in unoperated hind limb slow and fast muscles of the inbred Lewis rats.
To reveal the effect of foreign innervation and altered thyroid status on fiber type composition and the myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isoform expression in the rat slow soleus (SOL) and fast extensorExpand
