Abstract :

The relationship between postnatal growth rate and functional proteins such as myosin and Na+-K+-adenosinetriphosphatase was analyzed in rat pups subjected to varied food intake and altered biochemical maturation. Rat pups subjected to variations in food intake exhibited altered rates of muscle growth and slower rates of total muscle protein accretion compared to the control groups. However, alterations in food intake did not affect biochemical maturation or induced fiber type-specific responses.
