Hi All and Happy New Year!

I just wanted to post a question to the histoland regarding muscle fiber typing
technique.  I know that there are antibodies out there and people do IHC on
muscle to determine fiber type.  I also know that there are enzyme stains to
determine fiber types.  Can anyone give me a run down on the pros and cons of
each method?

Thanks a lot,
