The effect of taurine depletion on the contractile properties and fatigue in fast-twitch skeletal muscle of the mouse
Taurine increases force production in skeletal muscle, and taurine levels may fall during exercise. The contractile properties and fatigability of extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles depleted of taurine by guanodinoethane sulfonate (GES) treatment were investigated. GES treatment decreased muscle taurine levels to <40% of controls. Peak twitch force levels were 23% of controls in GES treated EDL muscles (p < 0.05), but maximal specific force was unaffected. The force-frequency relationship...[Show more]
