This report summarizes the analysis of the accumulation of receptors, emphasizing that it is the result of active metabolic turnover. Although most of the research has focused upon receptor metabolism in embryonic muscle in tissue culture, many aspects of receptor metabolism in tissue culture are similar to those leading to the spread of acetylcholine sensitivity in adult muscle following denervation.
