The variability of structures supporting tissue oxygen transport (capillaries) and oxygen consumption (mitochondria) was analyzed in skeletal muscles of wildebeest and dik-dik. Regional differences in mitochondria and capillary densities within individual muscles were found for M. semitendinosus (twofold) but not for M. longissimus dorsi and diaphragm. Comparing 20 different muscles from both animals, the volume density of mitochondria in the muscle fibers [Vv(mt,f)] was significantly higher in… CONTINUE READING
