In the present study, when the enzyme activity decreased (between 14 and 21 days of aging), evidenced by the reduction of myofibrillar degradation in this period (MFI), the pH also decreased (Table 1).
Desorbed protein from 2-hour-oxidized samples exhibited greater losses of fluorescence and more extensive polymerization of myosin than myofibrillar protein in the continuous phase, as detected by sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
Central accumulations of myofibrillar material that produce areas devoid of mitochondria (and thus devoid of staining for oxidative enzymes like NADH, SDH, and COX) at, or near, the center of myofibers.

2011), NaCl concentrations commonly added to meat products provide the ionic strength necessary for dissolution and extraction of the myofibrillar proteins responsible for emulsification, gelatinization and water retention capacity, among others.
It is also known as flat-pup syndrome, twisted legs, turtle pup, splay leg (paraparesis), splay weak (tetraparesis) and myofibrillar hypoplasia (Verhoeven, 2006).
Protein degradation may be responsible for the disorganization of the myofibrillar structure (Delbarre-Ladrat et al.
Although this could be a result of fast degradation of myofibrils when the damaged area is small and subjected to large plasma flow, our data indicate that washout of cTnT and therefore also cTnI can occur without extensive myofibrillar degradation, because cTnT extraction can be almost complete after 90 min.
