Cranial skeletal muscles underlie breathing, eating, and eye movements. In most animals, at least two types of muscle fibers underlie these critical functions: fast and slow muscle fibers. We describe here the anatomical distribution of slow and fast twitch muscle in the zebrafish (Danio rerio) head in the adult and at an early larval stage just after feeding has commenced. We found that all but one of the cranial muscles examined contain both slow and fast muscle fibers, but the relative… CONTINUE READING
