Adult skeletal muscles are composed of clusters of multinucleated muscle cells called myofibers. At least three different types of myofibers can be detected within mammals based on their physiological properties and their expression of different contractile protein isoforms. Different skeletal muscles display a wide range of combinations of myofibers. Recent work has demonstrated that multiple mechanisms are responsible for the generation of these myofiber types during development. Muscle… CONTINUE READING
