Force Maintenance with Reduced Ability to Shorten Actively in Barnacle Striated Muscle

Abstract

1. Fibres from adductor scutorum muscle of a barnacle Tetraclita squamosa were made to contract isometrically by electrical stimulation, and the change in the ability to shorten actively during the mechanical responses was examined by suddenly allowing the fibres to shorten under a very small load (<3 % of the force immediately before shortening) at various… (More)
