Abstract

Muscle fibers exhibit a limited capacity to alter their myosin heavy chain expression in response to various stimuli. Recent results pertinent to this observation are discussed, and a hypothetical scheme is presented whereby the contribution of myonuclei from distinct populations of myogenic precursors may account for this limited adaptive range.
