Title Maximum contractile filament movement per ATP used in muscle contraction is ∼1.3nm not 13nm
Author Barclay, C. J.
Journal Name International Journal of Biological Macromolecules
Year Published 2005
Place of publication Amsterdam
Publisher Elsevier
Abstract In a recent article, Wu and Nakamura suggested that previous estimates of the distance that the contractile filaments of muscle move for each ATP consumed were incorrectly calculated. However, Wu and Nakamura's conclusion was based on an erroneous calculation brought about by incorrect application of a formula used previously, and correctly, by Worthington and Elliott. The details of this error and its consequences are described.
