Isometric force redevelopment of skinned muscle fibers from rabbit activated with and without Ca2+.
Fiber isometric tension redevelopment rate (kTR) was measured during submaximal and maximal activations in glycerinated fibers from rabbit psoas muscle. In fibers either containing endogenousExpand

Activation dependence and kinetics of force and stiffness inhibition by aluminiofluoride, a slowly dissociating analogue of inorganic phosphate, in chemically skinned fibres from rabbit psoas muscle
SummaryTo examine the mechanism by which aluminiofluoride, a tightly binding analogue of inorganic phosphate, inhibits force in single, chemically skinned fibres from rabbit psoas muscle, we measuredExpand

Cardiorespiratory response to exercise after repair of tetralogy of Fallot.
We studied 24 patients who had a graded exercise test 1 to 16 years after correction of tetralogy of Fallot. Maximal oxygen consumption was subnormal in 19 of the patients. We found no relationshipExpand

Unloaded shortening of skinned muscle fibers from rabbit activated with and without Ca2+.
Unloaded shortening velocity (VUS) was determined by the slack method and measured at both maximal and submaximal levels of activation in glycerinated fibers from rabbit psoas muscle. GradedExpand

Calcium-independent activation of skeletal muscle fibers by a modified form of cardiac troponin C.
A conformational change accompanying Ca2+ binding to troponin C (TnC) constitutes the initial event in contractile regulation of vertebrate striated muscle. We replaced endogenous TnC in singleExpand

Effects of Volatile Anesthetics on Sarcolemmal Calcium Transport and Sarcoplasmic Reticulum Calcium Content in Isolated Myocytes
Background The surface membrane Ca2+–adenosine triphosphatase and Na+–Ca2+ exchanger transport Ca2+ out of the ventricular myocyte, competing for cytosolic Ca2+ with the Ca2+-adenosine triphosphataseExpand

Isotonic force modulates force redevelopment rate of intact frog muscle fibres: evidence for cross‐bridge induced thin filament activation
We tested the hypothesis that force‐velocity history modulates thin filament activation, as assessed by the rate of force redevelopment after shortening (+dF/dtR). The influence of isotonic force onExpand

Effects of cycling and rigor crossbridges on the conformation of cardiac troponin C.
The results of work by several investigators indicate that crossbridge attachment serves as a positive feedback mechanism that transiently increases the Ca2+ affinity of troponin C (TnC) during eachExpand

Introduction of Microwave Ablation Into a Renal Ablation Practice: Valuable Lessons Learned.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the early outcomes of percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) for clinical stage T1 (cT1) renal masses when performed within a high-volume ablationExpand
