PURPOSE To determine whether the levator palpebrae superioris (LPS) and the retractor bulbi (RB) muscles, which share contractile characteristics with extraocular muscles (EOMs), express fast EOM-specific myosin heavy chain (MyHC) in the rabbit and other mammalian species. METHODS Cryostat sections of rabbit eye and limb muscles were stained by indirect peroxidase immunohistochemical procedures using monoclonal antibodies (MAbs), including one (4A6) against EOM-specific fast MyHC. Myosin… CONTINUE READING
