Electrophoretic analyses of muscle proteins in whole muscle homogenates and single muscle fiber segments were used to examine myosin heavy chain (MHC) and myosin light chain 2 (MLC2) isoform composition and fiber type populations in soleus muscles from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and their age-matched normotensive controls [Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats], at three stages in the development of high blood pressure (4 wk, 16 wk, and 24 wk of age). Demembranated (chemically skinned with 2… CONTINUE READING
