A study of the role of glycogen in skeletal muscle performance and of myosin heavy chain isoform expression in amphibian skeletal muscle using the toad Bufo marinus

Nguyen, Long Thanh (2000) A study of the role of glycogen in skeletal muscle performance and of myosin heavy chain isoform expression in amphibian skeletal muscle using the toad Bufo marinus. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

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.
