Historically, an increase in intracellular H (decrease in cell pH) was thought to contribute to muscle fatigue by direct inhibition of the cross-bridge leading to a reduction in velocity and force. More recently, due to the observation that the effects were less at temperatures closer to those observed in vivo, the importance of H as a fatigue agent has been questioned. The purpose of this work was to re-evaluate the role of H in muscle fatigue by studying the effect of low pH (6.2) on force… CONTINUE READING
