(1) The effects of glycerol-treatment on the ultrastructure, tension, and electrical properties of rat sternomastoid muscle fibers are described. (2) The effect upon the ultrastructure of fibers differed from that previously reported for amphibian fibers, in that the sarcoplasmic reticulum, as well as the T-system, was disrupted. (3) Tension (tetanus and K-contracture) was abolished when preparations were returned to normal Krebs after exposure to a glycerol-Krebs solution (exposure periods… CONTINUE READING
