myotubule

 [mi″o-too´būl]
a developing skeletal muscle fiber with a centrally located nucleus. adj., adj myotu´bular.

my·o·tube

(mī'ō-tūb),
A skeletal muscle fiber formed by the fusion of myoblasts during a developmental stage; a few myofibrils occur at the periphery, and the central core is occupied by nuclei and sarcoplasm so that the fiber has a tubular appearance.

myotube

[mi′oto̅o̅b]
a developing muscle cell or fiber with a centrally-located nucleus.

Results: The absolute and relative quantitation of GLUT4 gene by qPCR showed the activation of GLUT4 transcript at lower concentration of steviol (1 [micro]M) and higher concentration of stevioside (100 [micro]M) in both L6 myotubes and 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

The molecular mechanisms driving changes in myotube adhesion are quite complex and likely involve both reversible transient short-term (0-20 h) components due to G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR ) activation and relatively stable long-term (>20 h) components.
The determination of 2-DG uptake in L6-GLUT4myc myotubes was performed as described previously (Tamrakar et al.
Furthermore, the absence of myogenin reduces MHC expression and myotube formation, indicating that myogenin has a unique function in the transition from a determined myoblast to a fully differentiated myotube (Davie et al.
The aim of this study was to determine whether propofol could trigger abnormal calcium fluxes in human myotubes isolated from malignant hyperthermia susceptible patients harbouring the native ryanodine receptor type 1 mutation.
