AFTER direct electrical stimulation of a muscle, non-collagen protein decreases and is later re-synthesized1. The rate of resynthesis is considerable, 1.9 mgm. of non-collagen protein/gm. of muscle tissue being resynthesized during 1 hr. The course of this accentuation of proteosynthesis was followed in the normal and denervated muscle. Fig. 1 shows that the decrease of proteins after stimulation of the muscle is the same in normal and denervated muscle and is accompanied by a decrease of… CONTINUE READING
