  • The most prominent findings were scattered atrophic myofibers that were mostly type one oxidative phosphorylation dependent myofibers, mild increase in lipid in selected myofibers, and occasional myofiber with reduced cytochrome c oxidase activity.

  • (B and C) Representative cryosections of the vastus lateralis muscle from a dystrophic CKCS dog (dog 2) showing excessive variability in myofiber size and typical areas of degeneration (necrosis and phagocytosis, B) and regeneration (small fibers with prominent vesicular central nuclei, C).

  • Excessive variability in myofiber size was evident with a pattern of degeneration (multifocal groups of necrotic fibers with variable phagocytosis) and regeneration (multifocal groups of small calibre fibers with a basophilic appearance and of histochemical type 2C).

  • In addition, MOR23 is the first molecule found to influence the process of myofiber branching, a form of degeneration seen in muscular dystrophies and aging.

  • The basal lamina of these fibers often appeared irregular, suggesting that the melanoma cells disrupt the extra-cellular matrix of the myofiber or that neighboring muscle cells respond to the presence of melanoma cells and alter their ECM composition (
