Abstract : Contents: Effects of iodoacetic acid Changes in latent period behavior Mechanics of iodoacetate rigor Effects of ions Potassium and rubidium depolarization poten tials of muscle Potassium effects on responses of muscle Potentiation of contraction by anions Effects of anions on normal and dystrophic rabbit muscle Potentiating effects of zinc Blockade of neuromuscular transmission by zinc Active state mechanismsStudies of the veratrinic response Eserine-veratrine interactions on mechanical responses The electrical response of veratrinized muscles treated with various excitation blocking agents Effects of lyotropic anions on veratrinic responses Studies of dystrophic muscle Effects of anions on rabbit dystrophic muscle Contractility of dystrophic mouse muscle Photodynamic actions Instrumentation and patent
