A time course study was conducted to investigate the possibility of a relationship between fiber degeneration and glycogen depletion in chronically nerve-stimulated extensor digitorum longus muscle of the rabbit. Muscles were stimulated 12 h daily at 10 Hz using alternating one-hour periods of stimulation and rest. When measured for the first time after 3 h (1 h stimulation, 1 h rest, 1 h stimulation), microphotometry revealed complete glycogen depletion of all fiber types (fast glycolytic, FG… CONTINUE READING
