  • In addition to the reduction in sarcoplasmic reticulum, relatively large myofibril diameters lead to increased diffusion times of Ca2+.Under isometric twitch experiments, asynchronous muscle in Cotinus mutabilis were found to have a twitch duration of 125 ms. In the same study, synchronous muscle in Schistocerca americana had a twitch duration of 40 ms. Therefore, asynchronous muscles respond slowly to neural stimulus. (wikipedia.org)
