Changes in satellite cell content and myosin isoforms in low-frequency-stimulated fast muscle of hypothyroid rat.


Chronic low-frequency stimulation was used to study the effects of enhanced contractile activity on satellite cell content and myosin isoform expression in extensor digitorum longus muscles from hypothyroid rats. As verified by immunohistochemical staining for desmin, vimentin, and myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoforms and by histological analysis, stimulation… (More)
