Data from: Nanometer-scale structure differences in the myofilament lattice spacing of two cockroach leg muscles correspond to their different functions

Travis Carver Tune, Weikang Ma, Thomas Irving & Simon Sponberg
Muscle is highly organized across multiple length scales. Consequently, small changes in the arrangement of myofilaments can influence macroscopic mechanical function. Two leg muscles of a cockroach, have identical innervation, mass, twitch responses, length-tension curves, and force-velocity relationships. However, during running, one muscle is dissipative (a "brake"), while the other dissipates and produces significant positive mechanical work (bifunctional). Using time resolved x-ray diffraction in intact, contracting muscle, we simultaneously measured the myofilament lattice spacing, packing...
