A quantitative identification of three muscle fiber types in the body muscles of Lampetra fluviatilis, and their relation to blood capillaries


The body muscles of river lamprey, Lampetra fluviatilis, are built up of compartments consisting of one layer of tubular parietal (red) fibers surrounding one layer of platelike (white) “next to parietal” fibers, and the medial 1–3 layers of platelike central fibers. By morphometrical analysis of ultrathin sections, the content of mitochondria was 15% and 6… (More)
