Mechanical response of lizard skeletal muscles to disuse: I. Effect of short-term tenotomization.

Abstract

The gastrocnemius muscles of the reptile, Uromastix hardwickii were tenotomized for seven days according to the method described earlier and their mechanical responses were recorded to study the effect of cessation of proprioceptive impulses on the functioning of these muscles. The parameters measured were isometric twitch and tetanic tensions, time… (More)
