Effect of cross-reinnervation on physiological parameters and on properties of myosin and sarcoplasmic reticulum of fast and slow muscles of the rabbit

The Journal of General Physiology
F A SréterJ Gergely


Cross-reinnvervation of fast (extensor digitorum longus) and slow (soleus) twitch muscles of the rabbit showed essentially complete fast to slow and slow to fast conversion, respectively, 11-12 mo after surgery with respect to a number of physiological parameters including intrinsic shortening, velocity, and isometric twitch time to peak. There was pronounced bu incomplete biochemical conversion as judged by Ca2+ uptake by sarcoplasmic reticulum, myosin ATPase, alkali lability, and light chain complement. The question of trophic substances of neural origin is discussed in light of the fact that chronic stimulation for 15 wk of a fast muscle produces complete biochemical and physiological conversion to the slow type.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
