Western blot pattern showed the expression of sMHC (slow myosin heavy chain) in the soleus muscle decreased with time after spinal cord transection, whereas increased with time after sciatic nerve transection. For the tibialis anterior muscle, there was no observed expression of the proteins of sMHC and PGC-1 (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivatior-1α) in the spinal cord transection group and in the sciatic nerve transection group. β actin, as a control.
