Abstract

The overall aim of this study was to contribute knowledge to two areas of inquiry in muscle research: one concerned with the molecular mechanism(s) underlying the positive correlation between intracellular glycogen content and skeletal muscle performance and the other with the MHC isoform composition in amphibian skeletal muscle and single muscle fibres. The organism used throughout this study was the cane toad Bufo marinus.
