The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of genotype and diet on the characteristics of muscle fibers and adipocytes of the semitendinosus muscle in crossbred young bulls derived from Brown Swiss cows B and double-muscled Piemontese PI or Belgian Blue BB bulls. For this purpose 24 young bulls divided in 6 groups fed 3 diets have been used: a control diet without supplementation of rumen protected CLA rpCLA, two other diets added with 8 or 80 g-d of a supplement of rpCLA. The histochemical methods succinic dehydrogenase and mATPase pointed out the presence of three fiber types: type I, type IIA and type IIX. Results demonstrated that genotype affected both fiber type number and size. While there was no significant difference among the percentages of type I fibers PI×B 12.73%, BB×B 12.95%, the difference was significant P
