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


The various pathways of purine nucleotide metabolism in intact skeletal muscle tissue under physiological conditions have not as yet been fully characterized. This, despite the quantitative predominance of this tissue in the mammalian body, and despite the important role of purine nucleotides in its contractile function.
