    Notes: 1. The effects of 4-methyl-2-thiouracil (MTU, 0.1% in drinking water) on the composition and cross-sectional area of muscle fibres of the rat soleus muscle were studied.2. The percentage of fast twitch-oxidative-glycolytic (FOG) fibres fell after 2 weeks of treatment with MTU to zero at 8 weeks. In contrast the percentage of FOG fibres in untreated animals fell to 19.2±2.1% during this period.3. The mean cross-sectional area of FOG and slow twitch-oxidative (SO) fibres were respectively 39.9% and 23.8% smaller than those of their respective controls 6 weeks after treatment. At 8 weeks the percentage reduction of SO fibre area was 26.8% of the control value.4. This study indicates that MTU treatment causes atrophy and redistribution of fibre type in the soleus muscle.

    Notes: 1. The effects of thyroxine treatment on soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscle contractions and their cyclic adenosine 3′,5′-monophosphate (cyclic AMP) levels were examined in anaesthetized cats.2. Thyroxine treatment decreased the tension of incomplete tetanic contractions of the soleus as well as the EDL muscles. The effect on tension of these muscles was not associated with an increase in the cyclic AMP level of the muscle as is the case with a β2-adrenoceptor agonist effect.3. The results do not support the involvement of cyclic AMP in the tension depressant effect of thyroxine on contractions of skeletal muscle.4. It is suggested that the muscle weakness and tremor observed in thyrotoxicosis and during administration of β-adrenoceptor agonists are mediated by different mechanisms.
