Analysis of the length response to a force step in smooth muscle from rabbit urinary bladder.
Responses to isotonic quick release of AC-stimulated smooth muscle strips from rabbit urinary bladder were analysed and it is suggested that part of the elastic recoil in phase (1) occurs in structures associated with the individual cross-bridges, that phase (2) is dominated by a change in the distribution of conformations of bridges in the attached position and that the shortening rate is determined by the entire cycle of events during turnover of bridges after the muscle has adapted to the new load.
Mechanical transients of single toad stomach smooth muscle cells. Effects of lowering temperature and extracellular calcium
The dissociation of tension and stiffness, during the fast tension recovery phase after a release, was interpreted as evidence that this recovery phase resulted from both the transition of crossbridges from a low- to high-force producing state as well as a transient detachment of cross bridges.
Force response to rapid length change during contraction and rigor in skinned smooth muscle of guinea‐pig taenia coli.
Mechanical transients in fibre bundles of skinned smooth muscle of guinea‐pig taenia coli were investigated by recording tension responses to length changes of up to 9%, and stiffness was rapidly restored to the same value as in isometric contraction.
Dynamic Stiffness Measured in Central Segment of Excised Rabbit Papillary Muscles During Barium Contracture
The dynamic mechanical behavior of excised rabbit papillary muscles that had been tonically activated by replacing bathing Ca2+ with Ba2+ was studied. Steady activation was used to visualize the
Cross-bridge elasticity in single smooth muscle cells
The relationship between stiffness and force was linear, which suggests that the transients originate within the cross-bridge and reflect theCross-bridge's viscoelastic and kinetic properties.
Dynamic Stiffness of Cat Heart Muscle in Ba2+‐Induced Contracting
Two alternative, approximate analogues, which are similar to but simpler than that previoudy proposed for a twitching papillary muscle are proposed.
Stretch activation and myogenic oscillation of isolated contractile structures of heart muscle
The delayed activation of the contractile bonds at stretch and the delayed deactivation at shortening induce the muscle-during sinusoidal length changes in a characteristic frequency range-to produce power output.
The time course of changes in contraction kinetics during the tonic activation of the rat tracheal smooth muscle
Variations in the time constants of post-vibration tension recovery occurred without any corresponding changes in the steady state tension developed after cessation of vibration, lending further support to the supposition that different mechanisms might control the rate and extent of smooth muscle contraction.
Estimate of rate constants of muscle crossbridge turnover based on dynamic mechanical measurements.
A physiologically based model has been developed to fit measurements of the complex dynamic stiffness (Young's modulus) of isometrically held vertebrate skeletal muscle to quantitatively estimate crossbridge rate constants of first (fA) and second (fB) stage attachment and detachment based on Huxley's hypothesis of two-stage crossbridge attachment.
Energetics and “Efficiency” in the isolated contractile machinery of an insect fibrillar muscle at various frequencies of oscillation
Glycerol extracted fibres from the dorsal longitudinal muscle of Lethocerus maximus represent the “isolated” contractile machinery and they produce oscillatory power in ATP salt solution when they are driven to oscillate at frequencies greater than 0.5 c/sec by sinusoidal stretch and release.
