Boost in mystery muscle creates endurance mice

“Human muscles are made of four main types of fibre, including two ‘slow-twitch’ varieties and one ‘fast-twitch’ muscle type that are suited to endurance and sprint activities respectively. Little has been known about the fourth type, called IIX fibre, because it is scattered throughout different muscles . . .”

“. . .Type IIX fibres are somewhere in between: they have lots of mitochondria but also contract quickly. One idea is that fibres go through a stage of being IIX during a conversion from fast-twitch to slow-twitch types, and that this might happen during certain forms of training. But their function is not known for certain . . .”
