An examination of calmodulin (CAM) levels in dystrophic hamster whole muscle and primary culture extracts revealed that an age-dependent decline in total CAM levels occurs in normal and dystrophic muscle between 2 and 12 weeks of age. Dystrophic values, however, tended to remain somewhat higher than normal, especially in 12-week-old skeletal muscle extracts. These differences were not evident at the terminal stages of the disease. No significant alterations in CAM levels were observed in dystrophic cultures despite evidence of a Ca('2+)-related abnormality in the proliferative capacity of these cells. It was concluded that CAM levels are not altered in response to the elevated intracellular Ca('2+) levels in dystrophic tissues, resulting a severe imbalance in Ca('2+)-CAM-mediated processes
