The aim of this study was to examine the effects of reduced glycogen concentration on sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+-ATPase activity in rat fast-twitch muscles. In the first experiment, the gastrocnemius (GAS) muscle from one leg was removed, followed by starvation for 24–72 h, after which the remaining GAS was removed. Intra-animal comparisons revealed… CONTINUE READING
