Newswise — Article title: The load dependence and the force-velocity relation in intact myosin filaments from skeletal and smooth muscles

Authors: Yu-Shu Cheng, Felipe de Souza Leite, Dilson E. Rassier

From the authors: “The main results of this study confirm a load dependence of force production that is observed at the molecules level, and a force-velocity relation that presented the same inverted hyperbolic shape that has been observed in previous studies using other systems.”

This study is highlighted as one of December's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
