Relationships between isometric tension development and pH, ATP, glucose-6-phosphate and glycogen levels as a function of post-mortem storage temperature were examined for three bovine muscles. Tension responses in the range of 5-37°C were similar for B. femoris, Vastus lateralis and outer M. semitendinosis. At 0°C, the three muscles developed considerably higher tension than at 5°C. Cold shortening developed only in the outer M. semitendinosis strips at 0°C. At low temperatures the drop in pH… CONTINUE READING
