Tokyo, Dec 17, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Beginning with their discovery of spontaneous oscillatory contraction (SPOC) of muscle, Prof.
We previously established that, using skinned muscle fibers placed in a Ca buffer, each sarcomere exhibited stable auto-oscillation of contraction and elongation under the fixed Ca concentration of approximately 1 uM, through careful measurements of muscle fiber tension (especially using thin bundles of myofibrils ~1 um in diameter); we termed this phenomenon as spontaneous oscillatory contraction (SPOC) (see recent review by S.
Measurement of spontaneous oscillatory contractions. The uterine strips were suspended in standard muscle baths that contained physiologic salt solution (PSS) composed of 116 mM NaCl, 4.6 mM KCl, 1.16 mM Na[H.sub.2][PO.sub.4] [multiplied by] [H.sub.2]O, 1.16 mM Mg[SO.sub.4] [multiplied by] 7[H.sub.2]O, 21.9 mM Na[HCO.sub.3], 1.8 mM Ca[Cl.sub.2] [multiplied by] 2[H.sub.2]O, 11.6 mM dextrose, and 0.03 mM Ca[Na.sub.2]EDTA at pH 7.4.
