KEY POINT: The individual muscle fibers within a muscle are not homogeneous (i.e. they are not all the same) Muscle fibers are classified into different types based on a variety of metabolic and contractile properties

Fiber Typing • Muscle fiber typing is often done by using enzyme histochemical procedures on thin cross-sections of muscles. – The intensity of staining is used as a measure of the activity of various enzymes . • The first classifications schemes were based on the staining for myosin ATPase activity – Slow or type I – Fast or type II • Fast fibers were divided into subtypes (A, B, C, etc)

Fiber Typing Muscle fiber typing can also be classified based on their oxidative and glycolytic capacities. Muscle cross-sections are stained for myosin (m) ATPase (fast vs slow), Succinate Dehydrogenase (SDH), (an oxidative enzyme), and α -glycerol phosphate
