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.
