Effect of Stretch on the Equatorial X-ray Diffraction Pattern from Frog Skeletal Muscle in Rigor
Changes in the equatorial X-ray diffraction pattern during stretch of frog sartorius muscle in rigor were studied. No significant changes in I1,0/I1,1 were observed by stretching the rigor muscles. The value of I1,1 was, however, found to decrease reversibly by stretch, while the value of I1,0 was so small that its changes by stretch fell within the range of accuracy of measurement.
