Comparison of CME characteristics for SEP and non-SEP related events
Abstract A comparison is made between flare-associated CMEs that produce SEPs and those that do not to determine what role CME velocity, flare duration, and CME-flare time delays play in SEPExpand
Influence of physiological L(+)-lactate concentrations on contractility of skinned striated muscle fibers of rabbit.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that L(+)-lactate significantly contributes to the depression of muscle function noted during lactic acidosis, directly inhibiting Fmax of the contractile apparatus. Expand
Ion-specific and general ionic effects on contraction of skinned fast- twitch skeletal muscle from the rabbit
TLDR
The data indicate that increased ionic strength per sc decreases Fmax, probably by destabilizing the cross-bridge structure in addition to increasing electrostatic shielding of actomyosin interactions. Expand
Influence of ionic strength on contractile force and energy consumption of skinned fibers from mammalian and crustacean striated muscle.
TLDR
The data indicate that, even in the best of salts, destabilization of the actomyosin complex may play a role in the effect of high ionic strength on the contractile process. Expand

Ion-specific protein destabilization of the contractile proteins of cardiac muscle fibers
TLDR
It is found that a protein stabilizer (trimethylamine N-oxide, TMAO) completely abolished the ion-specific effects on Fmax, indicating that certain osmolytes can alter Fmax if the contractile proteins are initially destabilized. Expand
An initial investigation into the possible influence of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in chronic nerve compression injuries and the effects of osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMT)
TLDR
Results provide further evidence of the palliative effect of OMT, in the case of muscle morphology and function, in chronic nerve compression syndromes, and hypothesize that, while OMT and Gb may work via altering oxidative conditions within and around the muscle, in agreement with previous results, OMT provides an additional ameliorative effect not related to ROS.

TLDR
In reviewing some well-established knowledge regarding the SRO and introducing more recent scientific findings, an attempt is made to offer insights on how this knowledge may be applied to better understand somatic dysfunction. Expand
