Single-fiber myosin heavy-chain isoform composition of rodent laryngeal muscle: modulation by thyroid hormone.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Studies have shown that canine laryngeal muscle contains a large number of muscle fibers that coexpress varying combinations of myosin heavy-chain (MyHC) isoforms. Currently, it is not clear whether this phenomenon is unique to canine laryngeal muscle or occurs in all mammals. OBJECTIVES To examine the single-fiber MyHC isoform composition of… (More)
