PURPOSE Mammalian extraocular muscles (EOMs) are both physiologically and biochemically unique when compared with nonocular skeletal muscles. Recent studies have demonstrated a process of continuous myonuclear addition in normal uninjured myofibers in adult EOMs of rabbits and mice. The current study was conducted to determine whether this process of myonuclear addition is a universal phenomenon in mammalian EOMs. METHODS The EOMs from adult uninjured monkeys and humans were examined… CONTINUE READING
