Force responses to fast ramp stretches at various velocities were recorded from single muscle fibres isolated from either lumbricalis digiti IV or tibialis anterior muscle of the frog (Rana esculenta) at sarcomere length between 2.15 and 3.25 μm at 15° C. Stretches were applied at rest, at tetanus plateau and during the tetanus rise. Stretches with the same velocity but different accelerations were imposed to the fibre to evaluate the effect of fibre inertia on the force responses. Length… CONTINUE READING
