1. The relationship between force and velocity of shortening and between power and velocity were examined for myotomal muscle fibre bundles from the dogfish. 2. The maximum velocity of shortening, mean value 4-8 ± 0-2 (ms" 1 half sarcomere" (±S.E.M., N = 13), was determined by the 'slack step' method (Edman, 1979) and was found to be independent of fish length. 3. The force-velocity relationship was hyperbolic, except at the high-force end where the observations were below the hyperbola fitted… CONTINUE READING
