Fine structure and metabolism of multiply innervated fast muscle fibres in teleost fish

Abstract

Both the fast and slow muscle fibres of advanced teleost fish are multiply innervated. The fraction of slow-fibre volume occupied by mitochondria is 31.3%, 25.5% and 24.6%, respectively, for the myotomal muscles of brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), crucian carp (Carassius carassius), and plaice (Pleuronectes platessa), respectively. The corresponding… (More)
