Excitation-Contraction Coupling in a Barnacle Muscle Fiber As Examined with Voltage Clamp Technique

  • Published 2003


Relations between the membrane potential and the tension associated with changes in membrane potential were analyzed in barnacle giant muscle fibers by using voltage clamp techniques. With a step change in membrane potential the tension reaches its final level with a time course which is expressed by the difference of two exponential functions. The time… (More)
