1. Sarcoplasmic reticulum fragments (SRF) and actomyosin were isolated from skeletal muscle of cats treated either with thyroxine or with placebo tablets, for 5-16 months.2. Ca(2+) uptake and binding by SRF, measured in the presence and absence of oxalate respectively, were reduced by thyroxine treatment.3. Actomyosin from the thyroxine-treated animals… CONTINUE READING
