Contractile and histochemical properties of the inferior oblique muscle in the rat and in the cat.

Abstract

Mechanical and histochemical properties of inferior oblique muscles(IO) were compared in adult albino rat and pigmented cat. The twitch contraction times and the fusion frequencies were about the same in both species indicating similar contractile properties of the fast contracting fibers. Rat IO seemed to contain fewer slowly contracting fibers than cat IO… (More)
