Force depression after active shortening has been observed in different muscle preparations. It has been assumed that force depression is caused by the development of sarcomere length nonuniformities after shortening. However, this hypothesis has never been investigated in a preparation where individual sarcomere lengths could be directly measured. Here, we investigated force depression in single myofibrils (n = 11) and tracked simultaneously the changes in individual sarcomere lengths (n = 60… CONTINUE READING
