Most flying insect species use "asynchronous" indirect flight muscles (A-IFMs) that are specialized to generate high mechanical power at fast contraction frequencies. Unlike individual contractions of "synchronous" muscles, those of A-IFMs are not activated and deactivated in concert with neurogenically controlled cycling of myoplasmic [Ca(2+)] but rather(More)
The present report describes the surface architecture of critical point dried mouse peritoneal macrophages, after attachment and spreading on glass, and during maturation and active phagocytosis of rabbit erythrocytes and latex spheres. This study also compares the appearance of unstimulated cells with that of thioglycollate and endotoxin-stimulated cells.(More)
