Neural stimulation controls the contractile properties of skeletal muscle
fibres through transcriptional regulation of a number of proteins, including
myosin isoforms. To study whether neural stimulation is also involved in
the control of post-translational modifications of myosin, we analysed the
phosphorylation of alkali myosin light chains (MLC1) and regulatory myo-sin light chains (MLC2) in rat slow (soleus) and fast (extensor digitorum
longus EDL) muscles using 2D-gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry....
The aim of this study was to analyse the thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer
(RNFL) of pulmonary tuberculosis patients on ethambutol and isoniazid. Materials and Methods:
This was a prospective cohort study where patients with newly diagnosed pulmonary
tuberculosis requiring chemotherapy, including ethambutol and isoniazid, were imaged using
scanning laser polarimetry. Their mean baseline RNFL thickness and various scanning laser
polarimetry parameters of both eyes were measured 2 weeks after the commencement of
