The Relationship between the Structure and Activity of Rat Skeletal Muscle Mitochondria after Thyroidectomy and Thyroid Hormone Treatment


The fine structure of rat gastrocnemius muscle fibers has been studied after changes were induced in the basal metabolic rate (BMR) by thyroidectomy and L-thyroxine administration under anabolic conditions. Biochemical analysis of skeletal muscle mitochondrial respiration and phosphorylation from the same tissue preparations has been summarized, details… (More)
