1. The mechanism of the enhancement and the deficit of isometric force by slow length changes in frog fast muscle fibres was studied by recording muscle fibre stiffness changes as measured with sinusoidal vibrations (0.5-1.9 kHz, peak-to-peak amplitude 0.1% of slack length, L0). 2. When a tetanized fibre was slowly stretched by 5-9% from sarcomere lengths 2.4-2.6 microns, the force rose to a peak during the stretch and then decreased towards a steady level higher than that during the ordinary… CONTINUE READING
