Age Related Differences in Muscle Fiber Composition and Capillary Supply of the Human Masseter Muscle

Abstract

The aim of the study was to test the hypothesis that aging causes changes in fiber composition and vascular supply in the human masseter muscle that contribute to impaired jaw function in elderly. The myosin heavy chain (MyHC) composition and capillary supply of muscle fibers in functionally different parts of the masseter muscle of six elderly and six… (More)
