Elevation of calmodulin in avian muscular dystrophy.


In an attempt to understand the mechanism of calcium accumulation in myopathies, changes in the major calcium-binding protein, calmodulin, was studied in genetically dystrophic chickens. Measurements by radioimmunoassay revealed an increase in the calmodulin concentration of dystrophic chicken muscles. Poly A-containing RNA(s) of fast and slow muscles from… (More)
