The increased muscle fiber diameter (MFD and cross sectional area (MFCSA with Zn supplementation may be due to many reasons including decreased oxidative stress (Prasad and Kucuk, 2002), antimicrobial activity of Zn (Sawai, 2003) and its role in digestive enzyme secretion (Naz et al., 2016).
This pathway not only enhances the death of existing muscle fibers but also inhibits formation of new muscle fibers leading to the loss of skeletal muscle mass and weakness12.
Resistance training causes the type I muscle fibers, which are resistant to fatigue, to adapt.
Fatigue in type I fiber predominance: a muscle force and surface EMG study on the relative role of type I and type II muscle fibers. Muscle Nerve, 14(9):829-37, 1991.
The stain for NADH-TR lead to the identification of oxidative and glycolytic muscle fibers, while mATPase pH 4.6 permits the recognition of slow twitch (type I) and fast twitch fibers (Type IIB).
Moreover, a spontaneous reduction of CCLs also seems to occur; no area showing the classical morphology of CCL in muscle fibers was observed on day 21 after tenotomy, whereas CCLs were observed on day 14 after tenotomy, similar to those previously described (7,10,35).
Freshly dissociated or 1- to 3-dayold cultured FDB muscle fibers retain many properties of in situ fibers, including muscle contractions and [Ca.sup.2+] transients that correlate with the number and frequency of field stimulation used.
An Olympus BH2 light microscope (Olympus Optical Co., Tokyo, Japan) fitted with a digital camera (ColorView, Soft Imaging System GmbH, Munster, Germany) was used to visualize the muscle fibers and collagen.
To study skeletal muscle physiology, single muscle fibers can be obtained from mice by either manual isolation or enzymatic dissociation.
It is widely accepted that muscle fiber composition is an important source of variation in meat quality (Wojtysiak et al., 2010; Javaid et al., 2012).
