Adductor pollicis muscle function of a 21-year-old man with genetically confirmed Brody's disease (sarcoplasmic reticulum [SR] -Ca2+ATPase deficiency) was investigated to study the possible effects of reduced SR-Ca2+ATPase activity on muscle relaxation and force production. Following maximal electrical activation of the ulnar nerve, tetanic muscle half-relaxation time was greater in the patient (246 +/- 10 ms) than control subjects (97 +/- 4 ms, n = 8). During repetitive activation, there was a… CONTINUE READING
