Electrostimulation-induced increases in fatty acid-binding protein and myoglobin in rat fast-twitch muscle and comparison with tissue levels in heart.

Chronic stimulation of rat fast-twitch muscle increased the content of both fatty acid-binding protein (FABP) and myoglobin. The increases in FABP, which reached values close to that of cardiac muscle, exceeded those in myoglobin and those in citrate synthase and 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase activities.
