The effects of tonicity on tension and stiffness of tetanized skeletal muscle fibres of the frog.

Abstract

Tension and stiffness of tetanically activated skeletal muscle fibres of the frog were studied at varied tonicity of the extracellular medium (1.7-3.2 degrees C; sarcomere length, 2.13-2.22 microns). The stiffness was measured from the change in peak tension in response to fast (0.2 ms) stretches and releases of small amplitude (0.11-0.15% of the fibre… (More)
