- ... Intraspecific studies have repeatedly shown that muscle-specific oxidative enzyme activities scale negatively with body mass while muscle-specific glycolytic enzyme activities scale positively. However, most of these studies have not included juveniles. In this study, we examined how citrate synthase (CS, EC 188.8.131.52) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH; EC 184.108.40.206) activity in the jumping muscle of Sc ...
