Överskrift Force responses to fast ramp stretches in stimulated frog skeletal muscle fibres
Beskrivning Force responses to fast ramp stretches at various velocities were recorded from single muscle fibres isolated from either lumbricalis digiti IV or tibialis anterior muscle of the frog (Rana esculenta) at sarcomere length between 2.15 and 3.25 microns at 15 degrees C. Stretches were applied at rest, at tetanus plateau and during the tetanus rise. Stretches with the same velocity but different accelerations were imposed to the fibre to evaluate the effect of fibre inertia on the force responses. Length changes were measured at sarcomere level with either a laser diffractometer or a striation follower apparatus. The force response to a fast ramp stretch could be divided into two phases. The initial fast one (phase 1) lasts for the acceleration period during which the stretching velocity rises up to the steady state. The second slower phase (phase 2) lasts for the remainder of the stretch and corresponds to the well-known elastic response of the fibre. Most of this paper is concerned with phase 1. The amplitude of the initial fast phase was proportional to the stretching velocity as expected from a viscous response. This viscosity was associated with a very short (about 10 microseconds) relaxation time. The amplitude of the fast phase increased progressively with tension during the tetanus rise and scaled down with sarcomere length approximately in the same way as tetanic tension and fibre stiffness. These data suggest that activated fibres have a significant internal viscosity which may arise from crossbridge interaction.
