Force development in smooth muscle strips of the hypertrophied urinary bladder of the rat after autonomic decentralization


Active length-tension relations for muscle strips of decentralized bladders differed from those of controls when comparisons were based on length in situ, but not when comparisons were based on lengths relative to optimum lenght for force development. The decentralized bladder behaved similarly to the denervated bladder, thus indicating that the presence of… (More)
