HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Definition:A histological alteration of muscle fibers that resembles a necklace (necklace fibers). A substantial proportion of fibers (4-20% in PMID:19084976) show internalized nuclei aligned in a basophilic ring (necklace) at 3 micrometers beneath the sarcolemma. Ultrastructurally, such necklaces consist of myofibrils of smaller diameter, in oblique orientation, surrounded by mitochondria, sarcoplasmic reticulum and glycogen granules.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Necklace skeletal muscle fibres
