Sarcomere length behaviour along single frog muscle fibres at different lengths during isometric tetani


A detailed investigation of sarcomere lengthening and shortening during fixed-end tetani has been made along frog muscle fibres stretched over a large range of sarcomere lengths. A variety of sources of error common in such measurements are quantitated and give an uncertainty in sarcomere length of about 53–62 nm. The difference in sarcomere length… (More)
