Several reports in the literature have shown that the first mechanical effect of the stimulation of a muscle fibre is an increase in fibre stiffness that precedes the .

The effects of electrical stimulation on selected biochemical characteristics and histological structure of the mutton Longissimus dorsi LD and Semimembranosus .

It is concluded that after a period of elevated Ca2 i

In biological systems
of notable importance is the action of elastic mechanisms.

which can uncouple muscle power from locomotor power by acting as

In the present study
we intended to explore new aspects of force enhancement by stretch using nerve skeletal muscle preparations isolated from frogs.


During stimulation the muscle was brought back to the length A by means of a ramp and hold stretch. 27 41. Rack.

A. Continuous Maximal Activity. If a muscle is stimulated continuously at a frequency close to that which gives maximal force.

then force production generally shows .

Contraction of skeletal muscle cells is initiated by a well known signaling pathway. An action potential in a motor nerve triggers an action potential in a muscle cell .

The limb muscles of a frog produce high levels of power to propel the animal into the air during a jump To do this

they generate large forces quickly.
