Ring Fiber

(redirected from Ringed Fiber)
A peripheral myofilament that is reoriented and encircles the other myofibres of the same bundle; there are thus central, longitudinal fibres, surrounded by fibres, which to some eyes, mimic the back of a ‘spiral’ notebook; these fibres show no evidence of phagocytosis nor regeneration and are a subtle, albeit non-specific histological marker which may be seen in myotonic dystrophy

If the wild fiber is considered as a combination of ringed fibers and protruding ones out of thread structure, their number is reduced by twisting, because of their different position in the outer surface of the thread that their spatial location round the thread is changed only by twisting without changing their number.
