... obliquely striated muscles. The cells approximate each other closely with minimal intervening intercellular connective tissue. Our physiological experiments, conducted at 17°C, showed that the longitudinal muscle fibers of the funnel retractor were activated rapidly (8 ms latent period following stimulation...

..., the SMR and CMP fibers of both paralarvae and adults exhibited the myofilament arrangements typical of obliquely striated muscle cells but the angle of obliquity of the dense bodies was 22.8±2.4 deg. and 4.6±0.87 deg. for paralarvae and adults, respectively. There were also differences in the distribution...

... during the prey strike( Kier and Curtin, 2002 ; see Josephson, 1975 ). By contrast,the thick filaments of the obliquely striated muscle mass of the arms range from approximately 6 to 7.5 μm ( Kier,1985 ; Kier and Curtin,2002 ), resulting in much lower shortening velocity (1.5 lengths s -1 ) ( Kier...
