Neural regulation of mature normal fast twitch muscle of the chicken suppresses high activity, extrajunctional localization, and isozyme forms of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) characteristic of embryonic, denervated and dystrophic muscle. Normal adult slow tonic muscle ofthe chicken retains intermediate levels of activity and embryonic isozyme forms but not extrajunctional activity; it is not affected by muscular dystrophy. The hypothesis that neural regulation of the AChE system is lacking in… CONTINUE READING
