The black reaction of Golgi was used to infiltrate transverse (T) tubules in fast-twitch glycolytic (FW), fast-twitch oxidative-glycolytic (FR) and slow-twitch (S) type fibres in muscles of guinea pigs. Non-junctional (fT) and junctional (jT) segments of the T-rubule network are clearly demarcated by this technique. Digitized planimetry and direct measurements were used to determine the proportion of T-tubule network forming junctions with the sarcoplasmic reticulum (%L jT ) and to estimate the… CONTINUE READING
