BAPTA determination of concentrations of total calcium in rat skeletal muscle tissues with or without the addition of TPEN

Muscle Type Wet weight [CaT]WM 
 mg mmole/kg 
  Without TPENa With TPENa 
Soleus 31.7 ± 7.80 3.71 ± 0.623 3.39 ± 0.635 
Plantaris 37.3 ± 10.6 3.57 ± 0.643 3.42 ± 0.624 
Muscle Type Wet weight [CaT]WM 
 mg mmole/kg 
  Without TPENa With TPENa 
Soleus 31.7 ± 7.80 3.71 ± 0.623 3.39 ± 0.635 
Plantaris 37.3 ± 10.6 3.57 ± 0.643 3.42 ± 0.624 

The wet weight of different rat skeletal muscle tissues expressed in mg and the calculated [CaT]WM expressed in mmole/kg are summarized here. Mean ± SEM.

a

Two-way ANOVA was conducted on four groups of [CaT]WM values measured with or without TPEN addition in soleus or plantaris to determine which variable—TPEN addition (variable 1) and/or muscle types (variable 2)—was significant. TPEN addition (variable 1) was found to be significant (P < 0.01); n = 3 for each muscle type. No significant difference was found for muscle type.
