.... Muscle fibres are classified on the basis of their myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform composition, which are broadly categorised into slow and fast fibres. In humans, these are slow type I and IIa fibres, which are poised towards oxidative metabolism with high fatigue resistance, but low shortening...

Marmoset VL contained almost exclusively fast muscle fibres (>99.0%), of which 63% were type IIB and 37% were hybrid fibres, fibres containing multiple myosin heavy chains. GM contained 9% type I...
