The Metabolism of the Frog's Heart

Nature volume 141, page 1122 (25 June 1938) | Download Citation



THIS useful monograph contains a full and critical summary of recent work on the chemical processes in the frog's heart and their relation to muscular activity. So much of our knowledge of muscle physiology is based upon those peculiar and highly specialized organs, the muscles of the hind legs of the frog, that information from other sources is needed as a corrective to one-sided views.
