Myotonic effects of 2,4-Dichlorphenoxyacetate (2,4-D) on the isolated frog skeletal muscle (author's transl).

2,4-Dichlorphenoxyacetate (2,4-D) produces myotonic reactions not only in mammalian skeletal muscles but also in muscles of cold blooded animals. There was induced a myotonic reaction by 2,4-D on isolated frog skeletal muscle and the changes of mechanogramm and electromyogram were studied. The relaxation of contraction was prolonged about 40% when the… CONTINUE READING
