Electron micrographs illustrate transverse sections at juxta-equatorial level of a typical bag fibre (Fig. 36), an intermediate bag fibre (Fig. 37), and a chain fibre (Fig. 38). The myofibrils are cut through at the level of the A band, except for those asterisked in Figs. 37 and 38, which are cut through at the level of the I band. Note differences in size and number of mitochondria, and development of sarcoplasmic reticulum.

The persistence of trail endings for the longest period after nerve section indicates that the thinnest y fibres are included in providing the trail innervation. b) The P Innervation. In its general appearance the PI plate resembles an extrafusal motor end-plate consisting of axon terminals in the form of tapers and, less frequently, knobs or rings, ramifying upon a nucleated sole plate that has a Doyere eminence (Fig. 72a; Plate 19). The plates are often longer than their extrafusal counterparts, probably because of the considerably smaller diameters of intrafusal as compared with extrafusal muscle fibres.
