Populations and distributions of fiber types were studied in 19 limb muscles ofMicrocebus murinus. Proportions and cross-sectional areas of muscles fiber types were compared with data from the literature for other prosimians (Galago, Lemur, andNycticebus), another primate (Macaca cynomolgus), and the rat.Most muscles are heterogenous, with type I fibers (slow oxidative) localized in the deeper part, near the bone. Type IIA fibers (fast oxidative glycolytic) are more evenly distributed than type… CONTINUE READING
