• MyHC
  • The MyHC content of single muscle spindles was assessed with SDS-PAGE and immunoblots. (diva-portal.org)
  • There were clear differences between BB and DN with regard to the morphology and MyHC composition of muscle spindles. (diva-portal.org)
  • Samples from 17 EOMs, 3 levator palpebrae ( LP), and 6 limb muscles were analyzed with SDS-PAGE and immunoblot or processed for immunocytochemistry with monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against MyBP-C-fast, MyBP-C-slow, MyHCIIa, MyHCI, MyHCsto, MyHC alpha-cardiac, and MyHCemb. (diva-portal.org)
  • fiber
  • Each muscle fiber contains several hundred to several thousand tightly packed strands called myofibrils that consist of alternating filaments of the protein substances actin actin, a protein abundantly present in many cells, especially muscle cells, that significantly contributes to the cell's structure and motility. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • fast
  • The means by which all types of muscles contract is thought to be generally the same, although muscles are classified as phasic, or fast twitch, and tonic, or slow twitch, to differentiate between the various lengths of time a muscle may require to move in response to stimulation. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The lack of MyBP-C-fast and intermediate is an additional feature of the human EOM allotype. (diva-portal.org)
  • special
  • The contractions of cardiac muscle are stimulated by a special clump of muscle tissue located on the heart (the pacemaker), although the rate of contractions is subject to regulation by the autonomic nervous system. (thefreedictionary.com)
