Role of weight-bearing function on expression of myosin isoforms during regeneration of rat soleus muscles.

The expression of myosin isoforms was studied in regenerated rat soleus muscle during either normal or altered postural activity. Regeneration was induced following injury by venom from the Notechis scutatus scutatus snake. Immunohistochemical analysis showed that, in regenerating soleus muscle after 3 wk of hindlimb suspension, nearly all fibers reacted… CONTINUE READING
