Extraocular muscle is modulated by unique genetic and epigenetic factors to produce an atypical phenotype. As a prelude to regulation studies, we characterized the development of cation homeostasis in the predominately fast-twitch extraocular muscles. By atomic absorption spectroscopy, total muscle calcium content declined from birth to postnatal day 27 and, thereafter, stabilized at a low level in limb but increased dramatically in extraocular muscle (to 40x limb values). By ELISA, the slow… CONTINUE READING
