  • By electron microscopy, the ultrastructure of the M line was investigated in fibers from frog nonglycerinated semitendinosus muscles at body length and at different degrees of shortening and stretch. The M line appeared as a line of high electron opacity in the middle of the A band. Its framework consists of: (i) three (four or five) arrays of transverse M bridges, 200 A apart, connecting each A filament with its six neighbors; (ii) M filaments, parallel to the A filaments, passing through the… CONTINUE READING
