Changes in the Cross-Striations of Muscle during Contraction and Stretch and their Structural Interpretation 
The Harnessing and Stability of Striated Muscle
We discuss three problems related to the contraction of striated muscle. These problems involve the matching of the force to the load, the longitudinal stability of a muscle fibre, and the harnessingExpand

Elastic Properties of Active Muscle-On the Rebound?
TLDR
Several lines of evidence suggest a role for the giant protein titin in active muscle, but specific mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Expand
Changes in the A-band width during contraction in horseshoe crab striated muscle
Cinematographic recordings of Ca-activated contraction in glycerinated bundles of myofibrils of the horseshoe crab striated muscle indicated that the A-band width did not change during rapidExpand
The mechanical properties of cat soleus muscle during controlled lengthening and shortening movements
1. By supplying pulses to different subdivisions of the ventral nerve roots in rotation, it was possible to obtain smooth contractions of cat soleus with low rates of stimulation.
The short range stiffness of active mammalian muscle and its effect on mechanical properties
1. The tension in tetanized cat soleus and lateral gastrocnemius muscles was measured during alternating lengthening and shortening movements. Sinusoidal movements were sometimes used; on otherExpand
Force Depression Following Active Muscle Shortening during Voluntary Contraction in Human Tibialis Anterior Muscle
The purpose of this study was to investigate steady-state force depression following active muscle shortening in human tibialis anterior muscle during voluntary contractions. Subjects (n
Muscle mechanics; the effect of stretch and shortening on skeletal muscle force
TLDR
The aim of the present thesis was to study systematically the impact of history dependent effects in intact muscles of the rat by performing experiments on in situ medial gastrocnemius and soleus muscles and mathematical muscle models were developed that describe historydependent effects. Expand
More roles for the (passive) giant. Focus on "The increase in non-cross-bridge forces after stretch of activated striated muscle is related to titin isoforms".

TLDR
The heart rhythmically contracts and produces force to pump blood into the circulation, while skeletal muscle contracts to perform a broad array of precise and dynamic movement. Expand
Changes in sarcomere length during isometric tension development in frog skeletal muscle
TLDR
Changes in sarcomere length during isometric contraction of isolated semitendinosus muscle fibres from the frog were studied using laser diffraction techniques and could be resolved in this way. Expand

TLDR
Alongside the macroscopic changes in viscosity, flow birefringence, light scattering and sedimentation, ATP appear to cause instantaneous re-dimerisation of the actin partner. Expand

TLDR
The importance of actin-bound ATP and its change during the change of form of the actin molecule is discussed in relation to the theory of muscle contraction and the probable importance of protein-bound ADP in systems other than actin is discussed. Expand
