A histochemical and morphometric study of fiber types in a variety of skeletal muscles of healthy young adult cats was undertaken to provide normative data not available previously. Using a standardized system of nomenclature, fiber types 1, 2A, 2B, and 2C were identified in most cat muscles on the basis of myosin ATPase staining at pH 4.45. Type-2M fibers were present in temporalis (TEM) and masseter (MAS) muscles. Type-1 fibers predominated in medial head of triceps (MHT) and soleus muscles… CONTINUE READING
