Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 165)


That resting skeletal muscle can use adenine for the biosynthesis of purine nucleotides has been established in this laboratory.1 The utilization of adenine by working muscle and by muscle recovering from work has not been reported previously and is reported here.
