The activities of lysosomal cathepsins and the calpain-calpastatin system were measured to determine their involvement in the more rapid tenderisation of fast glycolysing muscle. The rate of pH fall of M. longissimus dorsi (LD) of Hereford cross Friesian heifers (n = 52, Experiment 1; n = 36, Experiment 2) was measured. Muscles were selected according to their rate of glycolysis; slow and fast (n = 16, Experiment 1; n = 10, Experiment 2). Fast glycolysing muscles were rated more tender in… CONTINUE READING
