The effect of insulin on contractility of directly stimulated skeletal muscles was studied in experiments in isolated preparations of rat fast, extensor digitorum longus (m. EDL), slow, soleus (m. SOL) and mixed, diaphragm muscles. In addition (diaphragm only) characteristics of extracellularly recorded muscle fiber action potentials (APs) were evaluated(More)
The last contractile responses (LCRN), where N is the number of individual contractile responses within tetanus, were separated from the integral tetanic responses of fast, m. Extensor digitorum longus (m. EDL), and slow, m. Soleus, rat muscles using a computer-graphic technique. The average amplitude of LCR5 in m. Soleus at a 20 Hz stimulation rate(More)
Nicotine in concentration 100 nM which corresponds to concentration of nicotine circulating in tobacco smokes induced hyperpolarization by approximately 4 mV of muscle fibres of the rat isolated diaphragm, as well as an increase in amplitude and acceleration of action potentials. Similar hyperpolarization was induced by nicotine and acetylcholine in the rat(More)
After three days of hind limb unloading, the depolarization of muscle fibers from -71.0 +/- 0.5 mV to -66.8 +/- 0.7 mV as well as a decrease in muscle excitability and a trend to fatigue acceleration were observed. After hind limb unloading, the electrogenic contribution of the ouabain-sensitive alpha2 isoform of Na,K-ATPase, tested as depolarization due to(More)
Two types of muscle fibre action potentials (APs) were recorded using narrow-tipped extracellular pipettes in isolated sartorius muscles of frog, Rana temporaria. The waveform of type 1 responses (T1 AP, 75% of recordings) was biphasic, 'positive–negative.' The type 2 signals were tri-phasic, 'positive–negative–positive' (T2 AP, 18%). The type of AP was(More)
The age-related changes of the contractile and electrical responses of the fast (m. tibialis anterior) and slow (m. soleus) isolated skeletal muscles and their changes under acute hypoxia were estimated during the 16-20 days of the chick embryogenesis. For the first time, the contractile and electrical characteristics of these muscles were described in the(More)
In loose patch clamp experiments on intact sartorius muscle fibers of the frog Rana temporaria, there have been two types of waveforms of extracellularly recorded action potentials (AP). Responses of the first type (T1AP) consisted of an initial positive phase with a subsequent phase of strong negativity, the latter only in a few cases followed by a weak(More)
Effects of Na+,K(+)-ATPase inhibitor: marinobufagenin, on contractile and electric characteristics of isolated rat diaphragm were studied for the first time. Marinobufagenin induced dose-dependent (EC50 = 0.3 +/- 0.1 nM) increase in the contraction force (positive inotropic effect). At 1-2 nM, it slowed down the fatigue induced by continuous direct(More)
