“…Here, we observed small, but consistent, force enhancement on the ascending limb of the force-length relationship in single fibres. This result implies that sarcomere length non-uniformities may develop on the ascending portion of the force-length relationship, in contrast to what has been found experimentally (Julian and Morgan, 1979b;Morgan, 1990Morgan, , 1994, and has been predicted theoretically (Allinger et al, 1996).…”

“…This theory states that force enhancement following active muscle/fibre stretching is associated with the development of non-uniformities in sarcomere lengths (e.g. Julian and Morgan, 1979b;Zahalak, 1997;Morgan et al, 2000), and that these non-uniformities are caused by sarcomere length instability (Hill, 1953;Gordon et al, 1966) that occurs on the negative slope of the force-length relationship, the descending limb, but not the positive slope, the ascending limb of the force-length relationship (e.g., Hill, 1953;Allinger et al, 1996). However, it has been shown that stretch-induced, steadystate force in single skeletal muscle fibres can exceed the isometric force at optimal length.…”

“…This idea originated from the proposal that muscle segments and sarcomeres were thought to be unstable on the descending limb of the force-length relationship (Hill, 1953;Gordon et al, 1966) because of the presumed softening behavior of muscle on that part of its working range. In the meantime, it has been shown that sarcomeres are perfectly stable on the descending limb of the force-length relationship (Rassier et al, 2003a;Rassier et al, 2003b), and that the apparent softening behavior of muscle was an artifact of the static, rather than the dynamic, evaluation of the stiffness of muscles on the descending limb of the force-length relationship (Allinger et al, 1996).…”

“…Fascicles were mounted in glycerol jelly on microscope slides, and fascicle length was measured using a video analysis system (Media Cybernetics, ImagePro Plus, Silver Spring, MD, USA). Sarcomere length was measured at five points along the length of each fascicle using a laser diffraction system (beam diameter, 0·8 mm; Allinger, 1995):…”
