Laryngeal muscles in mammals are involved in highly specialized functions such as control of air passage, sphincter for airway protection and phonation. In this study, we aimed to assess whether such specialized functions are accompanied by specific distributions of fibre types. To this end, we studied the expression of the isoforms of the heavy subunit of myosin, myosin heavy chain (MyHC), which are considered the molecular markers of fibre types. The pattern of MyHC isoform expression was… CONTINUE READING
