Biochemistry of Muscle Diseases

  • R. J. T. Pennington

Abstract

A considerable amount of information on biochemical changes in muscle diseases has been amassed during the past two decades or so, and reference may be made to several reviews and to the published proceedings of a number of meetings concerned with the subject [1–5]. In this chapter an attempt is made to deal concisely with some aspects and, since this book is concerned primarily with the nervous system, to pay particular attention to the possible role of the latter in muscle diseases. In recent years important new developments in the study of nerve-muscle interactions have appeared, although knowledge of the underlying mechanisms is still scanty, and this new knowledge may prove to be very important in the understanding of some muscle diseases. It is pertinent, therefore, first of all to review briefly the existing knowledge and hypotheses in this field.
