Abstract

Abstract Frog sartorius muscles, exposed for up to 15–20 min to media containing ethylene glycol bis (β-aminoethyl ether) - N, N′-tetraacetic acid and thus having free Ca 2+ concentration less than 10 −8 M, produce isometric contractions with basically normal but speedier latency relaxation and earliest tension development. The excitation-contraction coupling is thus also basically normal, but speedier evidently in respect to release of activator Ca 2+ from the sarcoplasmic reticulum.
