Fibre types in the iliofibularis muscle of the freshwater terrapin Pseudemys scripta elegans have been characterized on the basis of their histochemical characteristics, nerve endings and contractile properties. Three types of focally innervated fibres are present, corresponding to the fast glycolytic (Fg), fast oxidative glycolytic (FOG) and slow oxidative (SO) fibre types of other vertebrates. Single fibres or small bundles of fibres representing each histochemical type were identified on the… CONTINUE READING
