Abstract The histochemical ATPase activity and the myosin light chains of a rat fast muscle (extensor digitorum longus, EDL) and a rat slow muscle (soleus) during development have been investigated. Both muscles initially synthesize fast myosin light chains and show the intense histochemical ATPase activity characteristic of adult fast muscle fibers. After birth, the soleus begins to accumulate slow fibers with their characteristic low histochemical ATPase activity, and slow myosin light chains begin to appear. Sciatic neurectomy prevents the development of slow fibers and the synthesis of slow myosin light chains in the soleus, while the EDL is unaffected. Similarly, cordotomy of an adult rat results, in the soleus, in the appearance of fibers with more intense staining for ATPase and an increase in fast myosin light chains. The EDL is unchanged by cordotomy. As a result, we suggest that slow muscle development, but not fast muscle development, is dependent upon the functional activity of the nervous system.
