[Histonet] Fibre typing cadaver muscle


Dr Montgomery asked about fibre typing embalmed cadaver muscle;

There was an article published in Modern Pathology in 1998 entitled,  
" Neuropathologic applications of immunohistochemical fiber typing in  
the non-neoplastic muscle biopsy" ( Modern Pathology 11: 334 -338)? 
where they claimed you can fibre type using MY-32 antibody on  
paraffin sections. This antibody reacts with fast twitch skeletal  
myosin.They show photographs that look pretty good...... I don't know  
if it would work on cadaver muscle, but if it is important important  
enough, it might be worth a try.
