Oscillatory contraction of insect flight muscle ( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Studies on glycerine-extracted fibres have shown that the oscillatory contractile properties of insect fibrillar flight muscle derive from certain peculiarities of the myofibrils, particularly an increase in ATPase activity when the fibres are extended and a stimulating effect of low concentrations of ADP. The molecular architecture differs in certain respects from that of vertebrate striated muscle. Giant water bugs, which provide the best source of fibrillar flight muscle, can be maintained in good condition in the laboratory. Certain species have been bred successfully but full maturation of the flight muscles has not yet been achieved. (Author)

Oscillatory contractile mechanism of insect flight muscle ( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The flight muscles of gian water bugs provide the best material for a study of the peculiar properties of insect fibrillar muscle. Although little was previously known about the biology of these insect, three species, Lethocerus maximus, L. annulipes and B. Malkini have now been extensively studied in the field in Trinidad and the techniques for breeding L. maximus and B. malkini worked out. Against the background of studies carried out in Oxford in the last four years (Pringle, 1967) special attention was given to the biochemistry of the ATPase activity of actomyosin and myofibrils prepared from fibrillar flight muscles (Maruyama and Allen, 1967; Maruyama, Pringle and Tregear, in press). This enzyme is similar to that from vertebrate muscle in its sensitivity to ionic strength and its requirements for MgATP as substrate but its dependence on the concentration of Ca(2+) is different and this is related to the stretch activation shown by intact glycerinated muscle preparations (Ruegg and Tregear, 1966). Previous studies (Chaplain, 1966) suggested an important role for ADP in the control of ATPase activity of insect actomyosin. Further studies show that the ionic strength of the medium has an important effect on the inhibition or activation produced by ADP (Maruyama and Pringle, 1967). (Author)
