Abstract

AN examination of the very extensive literature dealing with the function of phosphorus compounds in the chemical mechanism of muscular contraction reveals so many contradictory statements that it is evident that the technique in use must be subject to some serious fault. Since we have found what is probably the main cause of the discrepant results obtained in this field, it seems desirable to communicate our results without delay.
