Comparative growth of porcine skeletal muscles using an indirect prediction of muscle fibre number

Comparative growth of porcine skeletal muscles using an indirect prediction of muscle fibre number

Growth 37(4): 333-344

Skeletal muscle growth was studied in the psoas major, gastrocnemius, biceps brachii and semitendinosus muscles in two strains of pigs, Minnesota and Hormel Miniature (HM). A significant increase in muscle weight and fibre diameter but no significant difference in sarcomere length with increasing live weight was observed in the strains; the rate of increase in fibre diameter generally diminished at higher weight; at 28 and 54 kg there was no strain difference in muscle weight or sarcomere length, but fibre diameter was larger in HM than Minnesota pigs.
