The objective of the research described herein was to describe the profile of histochemically determined myofiber types in serratus ventralis thoracis of the sheep at various stages of postnatal development. This muscle acts to suspend the trunk and to pull the anterior limbs back during locomotion. The results obtained allow comparison with other results in the literature on muscles with different functional demands of movement and postural activity. Three sheep were sacrificed at each of the… CONTINUE READING
