This image shows a transverse section of healthy mouse skeletal muscle stained for myosins I, IIa, and IIb, which distinguish myofibers with differing metabolic properties. Defining fiber-type specific involvement or susceptibility in different neuromuscular diseases can aid in diagnosis and may aid in characterizing underlying etiologies of muscle disease.
