Three calpain isoforms are autolyzed in rat fast-twitch muscle after eccentric contractions


The present study investigated changes in autolysis of three calpain isoforms in skeletal muscles undergoing eccentric contractions (ECC), leading to prolonged force deficits. Rat extensor digitorum longus and tibialis anterior muscles were exposed to 200-repeated ECC in situ, excised immediately after or 3 or 6 days after cessation of ECC, and used for… (More)
