Abstract

In order to examine muscle ischemia, muscle blood flow in the rat hindlimb was decreased by vessel ligation. Amino acid uptake, studied with [14C]α-aminoisobutyric acid, was decreased in ischemic Type I (soleus) muscle. Glucose uptake, studied with [14C]deoxyglucose, was increased in Type I muscle. These changes were temporally associated with histologic changes of ischemia in soleus muscle. Denervation, atrophy, and hypertrophy also produced uptake changes with these techniques, and although more prominent in soleus, the changes were also seen in Type II muscle.
