High impact information on Muscle Fibers, Slow-Twitch


Anatomical context of Muscle Fibers, Slow-Twitch


Associations of Muscle Fibers, Slow-Twitch with chemical compounds

  • The rate of SR Ca(2+) uptake was increased in slow-twitch muscle fibers (14.2 +/- 1.0 vs. 19.6 +/- 2. 5 nmol. min(-1). mg fiber protein(-1), P < 0.05) and not altered in fast-twitch fibers [8].
  • The accuracy of the method was assessed in rabbit muscles after the injection of two gadolinium chelates (Gd-DTPA and Gd-DOTA) with the aim of improving the in vivo characterization of fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fiber types [9].
  • Interactions between the two myosin heads were studied in skinned rabbit slow-twitch muscle fibers activated in the presence of vanadate (Vi), a phosphate analog [10].
  • The lactate change ratio (post-exercise/pre-exercise) correlated negatively to the percentage of slow-twitch muscle fibers (P less than 0.05) in the patients but not in the healthy controls [11].
