Light diffraction intensity from muscle fibres in different osmotic solutions: measurement of equilibration time

Abstract

A new method for evaluating the osmotic equilibration time of striated muscle fibres is described. Single fibres from the semitendinosus muscles of frog were illuminated normally with a He-Ne laser. The first-order diffraction intensity was measured continuously after the tonicity of the fibre's bathing solution was changed abruptly. Hypertonicity decreased… (More)
