- Achievements include research on ultrastructural quantitations and biochemical determination of ATPase activity of red and white muscle cells, establishment of long-term culture of adult cardiac muscle cells, expression of myosin heavy chain isoforms in cultured cardiac muscle cells, effect of Amiodarone (antiarrythmic drug) on cultured cardiac muscle cells. TPA (a tumor promotor) has no influence on the myosin heavy chain, remodeling of adult cardiac muscle cells in culture, structure and function of desmin in cultured adult cardiac muscle cells.
