Micro-structural and biochemical characteristics of myofibre growth and metabolism were compared among three regions (dark [near bone], central, and superficial bright) of the semitendinosus muscle mid-belly of 28-day old piglets. The total fibre number as estimated from the dark, central, and bright region, as well as mean fibre area did not differ among regions. Compared with the bright region, the dark region exhibited a larger proportion of red oxidative fibres, a greater capillary density… CONTINUE READING
