  • SummarySingle fibres of different sarcomere length at rest have been isolated from the claw muscle of the yabby (Cherax destructor), a decapod crustacean. Fibres of either long (SL > 6 μm) or short (SL < 4 μm) sarcomere length have been mechanically skinned and were maximally activated by Ca2+ and Sr2+ under various experimental conditions (ionic strength, in the presence of 2,3 butanedione monoxime (BDM)) to determine differences in their contractile properties. Isometric force was measured… CONTINUE READING
