The length dependency of calcium activated contractions in the femoral artery smooth muscle studied with different methods of skinning

Abstract

The relationship between the calcium concentration and the isometric tension obtained with different techniques of skinning provides information on the biochemical events of contraction in vascular smooth muscle. Muscle preparations of the rabbit femoral artery were skinned with triton X-100, saponin, β-escin and α-toxin and the relationship between the… (More)
