INTRODUCTION When muscle is allowed to shorten during an active contraction, the maximum force that redevelops after shortening is smaller than the isometric force at the same muscle length without prior shortening. We studied the course of force redevelopment after shortening in smooth muscle to unravel the mechanism responsible for this deactivation. METHOD In a first series of measurements the shortening velocity was varied resulting in different shortening amplitudes. In a second series… CONTINUE READING
