Electromechanical delay in isometric muscle contractions evoked by voluntary, reflex and electrical stimulation
Electromechanical delay (EMD) in isometric contractions of knee extensors evoked by voluntary, tendon reflex (TR) and electrical stimulation (ES) was investigated in 21 healthy young subjects. TheExpand

Spermatogenesis and the fine structure of the mature spermatozoon of the liver fluke, Fasciola hepatica (Trematoda: Digenea).
Spermatogenesis and the fine structure of the mature spermatozoon of Fasciola hepatica have been studied by transmission electron microscopy. The primary spermatogonia display a typical gonialExpand

Effects of fatigue and sprint training on electromechanical delay of knee extensor muscles
Electromechanical delay (EMD) of knee extensors in isometric contraction was investigated in six healthy men before and after four periods of 30-s all-out sprint cycling exercise, conducted pre andExpand

Understanding triclabendazole resistance.
Triclabendazole (TCBZ) has been the drug of choice to treat liver fluke infections in livestock for >20 years, due to its high activity against both adult and juvenile flukes. More recently, it hasExpand

Prolonged exercise to fatigue in humans impairs skeletal muscle Na+-K+-ATPase activity, sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ release, and Ca2+ uptake.
Prolonged exhaustive submaximal exercise in humans induces marked metabolic changes, but little is known about effects on muscle Na+-K+-ATPase activity and sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ regulation. WeExpand

Alkalosis increases muscle K+ release, but lowers plasma [K+] and delays fatigue during dynamic forearm exercise
Alkalosis enhances human exercise performance, and reduces K+ loss in contracting rat muscle. We investigated alkalosis effects on K+ regulation, ionic regulation and fatigue during intense exerciseExpand
