1. Transient, stretch-evoked force responses of chemically skinned muscle fibers from the cat hindlimb were investigated. The purpose of these experiments was to determine the exent to which short-range stiffness, the apparent stiffness exerted by the fiber over the first 0.5% of length change, is higher in type I than type II muscle fibers. Fibers were obtained from soleus and vastus intermedius muscles, which contain predominantly type I fibers, the LGm, a compartment of the lateral… CONTINUE READING
