I am looking for potential pathological changes in muscle from a 
variety of mouse mutations.
The whole hind leg is placed in formol saline, pieces of muscle 
removed then  processed to paraffin wax. There appears to be 
some artefact within the muscle fibre when sectioned transversley,
(some of this could be pathology, I am waiting for a normal control).
Does anyone have any experience with muscle "biopsies" and processing 
procedures. I know this is not the best approach for muscle but this 
is an initial look-see before getting into the realms of special 
stains, frozen sections etc.
