Summary of "Evidence of marbling as a single connected entity in beef striploins."

Serial sections of Angus striploins that varied in marbling were analysed in three dimensions to assess potential differences in intramuscular fat structure. The majority of the intramuscular fat appeared to be connected along the 100 mm of muscle in both the highly marbled and less marbled striploins. Thus, rather than having dispersed individual flecks of marbling, the intramuscular fat was a single entity within the striploin. The local shape patterns of this entity varied with marbling level in that the structure had an increased diameter in the highly marbled striploins. However, the amount of branching in the intramuscular fat did not vary with the level of marbling. The results suggest that marbling may occur along an internal structure, such as the vascular system or interstitium, in the longissimus muscle. It is postulated that when beef marbling increases, additional intramuscular fat is not deposited in isolated sites but along this internal structure, widening the existing entity rather than changing the shape.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A syndrome in the elderly characterized by proximal joint and muscle pain, high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a self-limiting course. Pain is usually accompanied by evidence of an inflammatory reaction. Women are affected twice as commonly as men and Caucasians more frequently than other groups. The condition is frequently associated with GIANT CELL ARTERITIS and some theories pose the possibility that the two diseases arise from a single etiology or even that they are the same entity.

A process between an entity and those groups or individuals potentially or actually impacted by the actions of that entity over a range of activities and approaches.

A preconceived judgment made without adequate evidence and not easily alterable by presentation of contrary evidence.

A form of antibodies (scFv) consisting of the variable regions of only the heavy and light chains, connected by a small linker peptide. They are less immunogenic than complete immunoglobulin and thus have potential therapeutic use.

Meat such as beef, pork, or lamb which contains more MYOGLOBIN than POULTRY or SEAFOOD.
