  • Summary In a hybrid stock in which 8% of newborn piglets were affected by splayleg, myofibrillar hypoplasia and myofibrillar degeneration were found in skeletal muscles of both splaylegged and control newborn animals. There was no statistical difference in the mean diameters of muscle fibres or in the extent of hypoplasia between the two groups. Myofibrillar degeneration, however, occurred in a significantly higher percentage of muscle fibres in splaylegged piglets (72.0 ± 4.0%) than in the… CONTINUE READING
