Fibre-type characteristics and postmortem glycolysis of bison (Bison bison bison) longissimus lumborum

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • To augment the limited information base, muscle fibre and postmortem glycolytic data from bison longissimus lumborum were compiled. As expected, postmortem glycogen concentration and pH declined while lactate concentration increased. Bison muscle fibres had a greater area, with a greater percentage of fast oxidative glycolytic fibres, and a lesser percentage of fast glycolytic fibres as compared to literature values for beef.
