Lactate and contractile force in frog muscle during development of fatigue and recovery

, : Lactate and contractile force in frog muscle during development of fatigue and recovery. American Journal of Physiology 231(2): 430-433

The relationship between lactic acid concentration and twitch tension was reevaluated in electrically stimulated frog sartorius muscle. In muscles stimulated under anaerobic conditions at a rate of 30 stimuli/MIN CONTRACTILE FORCE DECREASED TO 36% OF THE INITIAL VALUE IN 15 MIN, Concomitantly lactate increased from 3.3 to 18.7 mumol/g of muscle. The correlaiton between the increase in lactate and the decrease in contractile force was significant (r = -0.99, P less than 0.000001). Recovery occurred in two phases. A rapid increase in contractile force, which represented 20% of the total recovery, took place during the first 15 s and occurred concomitantly with an increase in ATP from 3.9 to 4.6 mumol/g. Lactate concentration did not change significantly during this period. The second phase of recovery of contractile force was complete in 50 min. Lactate concentration and contractile force were significatly correlated during recovery (r = -0;92, P less than 0.00001). However, recovery of contractile force lagged behind the decrease in lactate; a given concentration of muscle lactate was associated with a higher contractile force early during development of fatigue than late during recovery.
