Fig. 1

Relative mRNA expression of myosin heavy chain isoform (MyHC I, IIa, IIx, and IIb) in the skeletal muscle of different locations of growing-finishing pigs fed the restricted protein diets. β-actin was used as an internal control. Data are expressed as means ± SE (n = 6). Bars with different letters are significantly different at P < 0.05. MyHC = myosin heavy chain; AP = adequate protein; MP = moderately restricted protein; LP = low protein
