Effect of growth on the development of protein in the pectoral muscle of birds

Effect of growth on the development of protein in the pectoral muscle of birds

Revista de Nutricion Animal 13(2): 91-97

Values are tabulated for moisture, total N, intracellular and extracellular protein and collagen in pectoral muscle of 72 chickens killed at weekly intervals to age 8 weeks. Sarcoplasmic protein increased from 28.6 at hatching to the maximum of 30.1% of muscle N at age 7 days, myofibrillar protein increased from 40.3 to 44.4% at age 5 weeks and non-protein N increased throughout the period from 11.2 to 14.6%.
