Myoglobin in rat hind limb muscles after denervation and during reinnervation.

Radioimmunoassay of myoglobin ( Mb) was performed in rat hind limb muscles after surgical denervation and during reinnervation following cryolesion of the sciatic nerve. Muscles of the contralateral leg served as controls. After resection of the sciatic nerve, decreased Mb concentrations were noted on the fourth day in the tibialis anterior, peroneus longus, and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles. Thereafter, the levels increased up to the last observation on day 32. The increases in Mb levels in the tibialis anterior and EDL muscles were considerably more pronounced (305% and 324%, respectively) than in the peroneus longus and soleus muscles (148% and 137%, respectively). After cryolesion of the sciatic nerve, the Mb concentrations in the tibialis anterior, peroneus longus, and EDL muscles increased, reaching maximal values on days 16-21. The levels then decreased and normal values were observed 2 months postoperatively. The normalization of the Mb levels during reinnervation corresponded fairly well in time with the clinical recovery and neurophysiological findings observed in a previous study.[1]
