...-old weanling piglets. Functional strains in piglets differed from those previously reported for older pigs in that the squamosal bone was not bent in the horizontal plane and the principal tensile strain on the zygomatic bone did not correspond to the direction of masseter muscle pull. Strain patterns...

... muscle fibres in large animals. We have studied MHC isoform composition and contractile properties of single muscle fibres from the pig. Masseter, diaphragm, longissimus, semitendinosus,rectractor bulbi and rectus lateralis were sampled in female pigs (aged 6 months, mass 160 kg). RT-PCR, histochemistry...

...Frank B. Jensen SUMMARY Autoxidation of oxyhaemoglobin (oxyHb) to methaemoglobin was measured at different temperatures in haemoglobin solutions from Atlantic hagfish, river lamprey, common carp, yellowfin tuna and pig. The aims were to evaluate the impact of the absent distal histidine in hagfish...

...Fred Anapol; Susan W. Herring ABSTRACT At incremental whole muscle lengths, active isometric and passive elastic forces were recorded from the masseter and digastric muscles of anaesthetized miniature pigs (Hanford) weighing 2·0−20·0 kg. Wet muscle mass and maximum tetanic tension values...
