A direct correlation of the histochemical and ultrastructural properties of intrafusal muscle fibres has been achieved by cutting frozen serial sections for histochemical applications (15 micron thick sections) and for electron microscopy (60 micron thick sections) in a repeating sequence. Three types of intrafusal fibre were recognized, including two types of nuclear-bag fibre, designated bag1 and bag2. In addition to histochemical and ultrastructural differences, the three types of fibre… CONTINUE READING
