Abstract

Background: The investigation of skeletal muscle development is of importance in stock farming and biomedicine. It is still ambiguous that whether animals are born with the full set of skeletal muscle fibers or if the number of myofibers continues to increase postnatally. Results: Here, an...

Abstract

The present study was conducted on the prenatal rumen of buffalo foetii with curved crown rump length (CVRL) ranging from 5.0 cm to 62.0 cm (51 to 213 days) to observe histomorphological changes during prenatal development. The lamina epithelialis was stratified, cuboidal and divisible into dark...

Abstract

Poor prenatal nutrition is associated with a greater risk of adult glucose intolerance and insulin insensitivity in the offspring. Skeletal muscle is the primary tissue for glucose utilization, and insulin resistance in muscle is the earliest identifiable abnormality in the pre-diabetic patient. We ...

Abstract

This review will focus on the evidence for in utero effects on development of skeletal muscle in farm and laboratory animals, particularly sheep and pigs. We will describe genetic and environmental factors that have been shown to alter the numbers of muscle fibres formed and outline our working...

Abstract

European meat and fish producers are continuously challenged for efficiency of production, animal welfare and meat/fish quality. In meat/fish production, muscle growth is the most important trait of the production economy and the muscle growth rate may influence the quality of the meat produced....

Abstract

It has been shown that the thermal experience during the earliest phases of development can determine the larval and postlarval growth characteristics of teleosts (Clupea harengus, VIEIRA and JOHNSTON; 1992; Salmo salar, STICKLAND et al., 1988; Dicentrarchus labrax L., AYALA et al., 2000, 2001). In ...

Abstract

MALTBY et al. (2004) presented a quite simple method to enhance the muscle fibre number of the M. semitendinosus in turkey poult by increasing the temperature between day 9 and 12 of incubation. Turkeys with a higher fibre number seem to have a lower hypertrophic growth to reach comparable meat...

Abstract

This study was conducted in buffalo fetuses ranging from 5.5 to 28.0 cm CRL with an estimated age of 53-137 days. The epithelium was either simple cuboidal or simple columnar during the earlier stages but transformed into stratified at 79 days. By 95 days, the buds of different sizes were formed,...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the prenatal histomorphology of liver in the non-descript Indian buffaloes. Fetuses (n=18) ranging from 46 to 323 days (3.8 cm CRL to 110.6 cm CRL) of age were collected and divided into 3 groups: group I (46-105 days; 3.8-16.9 cm CRL) consisted of 7 fetuses; ...
