The myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isoforms, I, IIa, IIx and IIb (with decreasing oxidative capacity in that order), are expressed in pig skeletal muscles (Quiroz-Rothe and Rivero, 2004) and vary significantly among different NMCs (Graziotti et al.

 Human genes: MYH7, myosin heavy chain, cardiac muscle, beta; MYBPC3, myosin binding protein C, cardiac; TNNT2, troponin T type 2 (cardiac).
Myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoforms have different structural, enzymatic, and regulatory contractile properties and can thereby impart functional diversity to muscles.
