Abstract

During active lengthening and shortening, muscles exhibit a variety of time-dependent spring properties, including load-dependent and nonlinear stiffness. These properties can be explained as interactions between a spring element and cycling cross bridges within muscle sarcomeres. Several lines of evidence suggest a role for the giant protein titin in active muscle, but specific mechanisms remain to be elucidated.
