Fiber type-specific distribution of parvalbumin in rabbit skeletal muscle

  title={Fiber type-specific distribution of parvalbumin in rabbit skeletal muscle},
  author={Tom Schmitt and Dirk Pette},
A highly sensitive sandwich ELISA for parvalbumin (PA), based on a fluorometric detection system, was developed. This assay detected PA concentrations as low as 20 pg/ml (2 pg per assay) and was used for measuring PA contents in fragments of single muscle fibers isolated from freeze-dried 100–150 μm thick cross sections. The fibers were typed according to their histo-chemically assessed mATPase in parallel cross sections. Type I fibers from rabbit tibialis anterior (TA) and vastus lateralis (VL… CONTINUE READING
