Effect of prepuberal castration on porcine bulbospongiosus muscle

Abstract

The histochemical profile and ultrastructural properties of the bulbospongiosus muscle (BSM) fibers from 5–6 month old boars and barrows (castrated at 7 days of age), and intact week old piglets were compared. Based on myosin ATPase, preincubated at pH 4.2, BSM of boars contained predominately intermediately staining fibers, whereas BSM of barrows and… (More)
