Electrical properties of toad sartorius muscle fibres in summer and winter

By Angela F. Dulhunty and Peter W. Gage


1. The area and circumference of surface fibres of sartorius muscles were measured from photomicrographs of frozen sections of whole muscles, and compared with the values obtained assuming a circular cross-section. The latter assumption gave an over-estimate of the mean area of 28%, but only a 2% over-estimate of the circumference. In isolated, single fibres, the assumption gave over-estimates of 25 and 6%, of area and circumference respectively
