Immunocytochemical characterisation of two generations of fibers during the development of the human quadriceps muscle.


We have carried out a comprehensive study of the formation of muscle fibers in the human quadriceps in a large series of well dated human foetuses and children. Our results demonstrate that a first generation of muscle fibers forms between 8-10 weeks. These fibers all express slow twitch myosin heavy chain (MHC) in addition to embryonic and foetal MHCs… (More)
