    J Physiol 589:5467-84. 2011
    ..If inactivation did not occur, the SR would run out of Ca(2+) well before the end of even a 40-twitch call. Hence, inactivation of the Ca(2+) release channel plays a critical role in swimbladder muscle during normal in vivo function...
  2. pmc The effect of temperature and thermal acclimation on the sustainable performance of swimming scup
    Lawrence C Rome
    Department of Biology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 362:1995-2016. 2007
    ..However, the increased rate of activation alone produced an even greater effect. Hence, to fully understand thermal acclimation, it is necessary to examine the whole system under realistic physiological conditions...

    Sanford Levine
    Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Pennsylvania, USA

    Biology Department, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
    Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 285:C781-7. 2003
    ..Furthermore, we found that BTS also effectively eliminates force generation in bundles of intact swimbladder muscle, suggesting that it will be an important tool for studying integrated SR function during normal motor behavior...
