Double-muscled (DM) cattle possess more muscle fibers than do normal-muscled (NM) beef or dairy cattle. Serum-borne growth factors have been shown to modulate myogenesis. Media containing serum from 12 DM and 60 NM fetuses grouped by crown-rump lengths (CRL) of < or = 25, 26 to 50, 51 to 75, or > 75 cm were used to test the effect of fetal serum on L6 myoblast proliferation. Because DM and NM fetuses were similar in CRL at ages corresponding to 20- to 60-cm CRL, CRL was used to determine fetal… CONTINUE READING
