Calcium Induced Release of Calcium from the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum of Skinned Skeletal Muscle Fibres

Abstract

The repeated contractions which can be observed in skinned fibres in appropriate concentrations of caffeine, Ca2+ and chelating agent suggest that calcium release is a regenerative process in which calcium itself causes the release of calcium from the reticulum.
