1. The contractile properties of single muscle fibres of the red strip region of adult chicken pectoralis major (PM) muscle, some of which are known to express an embryonic isoform of myosin heavy chain (MHC), were determined and compared with the properties of the fast white fibres of the PM and the slow tonic fibres of the anterior latissimus dorsi (ALD) muscle. 2. The red strip fibres could be classified into two groups, fast and slow. The mean velocity of unloaded shortening (Vmax) in fast… CONTINUE READING
