... (force enhancement) and decreases after active shortening (force depression). In addition to cross-bridges, titin has been suggested to contribute to force enhancement and depression. Although titin is too compliant in passive muscles to contribute to active tension at short sarcomere lengths...

...Shawn M. O'Connor; Elton J. Cheng; Kevin W. Young; Samuel R. Ward; Richard L. Lieber ABSTRACT Laser diffraction (LD) is a valuable tool for measuring sarcomere length ( L s ), a major determinant of muscle function. However, this method relies on few measurements per sample that are often...

... other than sarcomere length non-uniformity alone are operative. Based on the results of this study, we conclude that the sarcomere-length non-uniformity theory does not explain all of the force enhancement following stretching of cat soleus on the descending limb of the force—length relationship. We...

...LAWRENCE C. ROME; R. MCNEILL ALEXANDER The aim of this study was to evaluate how fish locomote at different muscle temperatures. Sarcomere length excursion and muscle shortening velocity, V , were determined from high-speed motion pictures of carp, Cyprinus carpio (11–14 cm), swimming steadily...
