Fiber type and regional differences in oxidative capacity and glycogen content in the hamster diaphragm.

The purpose of this study was to define variability of the oxidative capacity and glycogen content between different fiber types and regions of the hamster diaphragm. Using histochemical and microphotometric techniques, the oxidative capacity (identified by nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide tetrazolium reductase reaction end product) and glycogen levels… CONTINUE READING
