Abstract

Male cicadas produce mating calls by oscillating a pair of superfast tymbal muscles in their anterior abdominal cavity that pull on and buckle stiff-ribbed cuticular tymbal membranes located beneath the folded wings. The functional anatomy and rattling of the tymbal organ in 17 yr perio...read more

Inotropic Agents & Heart Disease

Inotropic agents alter the force or energy of muscular contractions. Negatively inotropic agents weaken the force of muscular contractions. Positively inotropic agents increase the strength of muscular contraction. Inotropic agents are used in hospitalized patients with acute decompensated heart failure, with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction and with signs of end-organ dysfunction in the setting of a low cardiac output, or with severe systolic heart failure awaiting heart transplant to maintain hemodynamic stability or as a bridge to decision.

Cytoskeleton & Cell Polarity

A dynamic cytoskeleton is critical for the generation of cell polarity. This feed focuses on cell polarity and the cytoskeleton, including actin and microtubular cytoskeletal organization.

Cytoskeletal & Motor Biophysics

Cytoskeletal motors of the dynein, kinesin and myosin superfamilies maintain and adapt subcellular organelle organization to meet functional demands and support the vesicular transport of material between organelles. Here is the latest research on cytoskeletal and motor biophysics.
