Excitation-contraction coupling in skeletal muscle fibres of rat and toad in the presence of GTP gamma S.

Abstract

1. Rapid force responses were elicited in single mechanically skinned fibres from extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscle of the rat when the fibres were depolarized by substituting K+ in the bathing solution with Na+. The properties of these depolarization-induced responses, the responses to lowered [Mg2+], and the characteristics of the slow prolonged… (More)
