A histochemical study of myofiber types in the serratus ventralis thoracis muscle of sheep during growth



A histochemical study of myofiber types in the serratus ventralis thoracis muscle of sheep during growth



Journal of Animal Science 56(6): 1447-1458



This muscle acts to suspend the trunk and to pull the anterior limbs back during locomotion. The results obtained allow comparison with other results in the literature on muscles with different functional demands of movement and postural activity. Three sheep were killed at each of the following ages: birth, 2, 4, 8, 12 and 16 weeks. One 52-month-old sheep was used. The muscle was processed histochemically for a series of enzyme activities including myosin adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase).
