Differences in Cellular Contractile Protein Contents among Porcine Smooth Muscles Evidence for Variation in the Contractile System

  • Published 2003
I N T R O D U C T I O N Vertebrate smooth muscles exhibit a remarkable diversity in physiological function. Functional variation is especially p rominen t in the max imum force genera t ing capacity (Fo) o f different tissues with axial fibers at their op t imum tissue length. After corrections for extracellular spaces, repor ted values o f Fo range f rom 0… (More)
