For clarification of the mechanism of hormonally and spatially regulated larval-to-adult conversion of skeletal muscle, changes in the expression of muscle contractile proteins were examined during metamorphosis of Xenopus laevis. Analysis by electrophoresis revealed that isoforms of myosin heavy chain (MHC) switched from larval to adult type and adult-specific beta-tropomyosin (TM) appeared during metamorphosis in addition to preexisting alpha-TM. Distinct regional differences in isoform… CONTINUE READING
