We used immunochemical quantification and indirect immunofluorescence to investigate the cell content, distribution, and organization of microtubules in adult rat slow-twitch soleus and fast-twitch vastus lateralis muscles. An immunoblotting assay demonstrated that the soleus muscle (primarily Type I fibers) was found to have a 1.7-fold higher relative content of alpha-tubulin compared with the superficial portion of the vastus lateralis muscle (primarily Type IIb fibers). Both physiological… CONTINUE READING
