Zhao et al  found that the number and volume of adipocytes in the longissimus
dorsi muscle were significantly higher in 180-day-old Mashen pigs compared to age-matched Large White pigs.
lumborum (LL) is composed of glycolytic fibers, whereas psoas major (PM) is composed mainly of oxidative fibers (HWANG et al., 2010); both demonstrate differences in chemical composition, affecting texture parameters (STOLOWSKI et al., 2006) and influencing the susceptibility of meat to oxidative deterioration (CANTO et al., 2016).
"My illiacus, longissimus
thoracis, they were all kind of overworking, if you want to get technical on that.
dorsi muscle samples were collected from four selected pigs at 160 days of age.
During carcass dressing, right Longissimus
thoracis et lumborum muscles (LTL) were cut out, packaged in polyethylene bags and transported to the laboratory in a box with ice.
After 24 hours in the cold storage chambre, the lefts half-carcasses were sectioned between the 9th and 13th thoracic vertebra of the longissimus
thoracis (LT) muscle.
A sequestrated cyst slightly away from the main lesion was seen measuring (13 x 16mm) in size, involving left longissimus
capitus muscle inferiorly and close to the left parotid gland superiorly.
thoracis, CIE [L.sup.*][a.sup.*][b.sup.*] colour parameters (Commission International de l'Eclairage, 1976) were measured at three locations of a freshly cut surface of m.
With the previous studies in mind, in order to assess the activity of trunk as well as lower limb muscles; the following muscles were chosen: rectus abdominus, external oblique, longissimus
, multifidus as well as vastus medialis, vastus lateralis and hamstrings, all from the right side of the subjects' body.
