Results were obtained from contracting frog muscles by collecting high quality time-resolved, two-dimensional, X-ray diffraction patterns at the British Synchrotron Radiation Source (SERC, Daresbury, Laboratory). The structural transitions associated with isometric tension generation were recorded under conditions in which the three-dimensional order characteristic of the rest state is either present or absent. In both cases, new layer lines appear during tension generation, subsequent to… CONTINUE READING
