This study investigated the effects of the oxidants hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) and 2,2'-dithiodipyridine (DTDP), and reductants, glutathione (GSH) and dithiothreitol (DTT), on the properties of the contractile apparatus of rat fast- and slow-twitch skeletal muscle fibres, in order to assess how oxidation affects muscle function. Skinned muscle fibres were… CONTINUE READING
