[Ca2+]i following extrasystoles in guinea-pig trabeculae microinjected with fluo-3 - a comparison with frog skeletal muscle fibres.

Abstract

Force production of cardiac muscle is highly dependent on the interval between the excitations. The aim was to investigate relations between intracellular calcium ([Ca2+]i) and force when a stimulus protocol, with three extrasystoles (ESs) at various intervals, was used. The relation between [Ca2+]i and force was compared with that in frog skeletal muscle… (More)
