Thermal acclimation and muscle contractile properties in cyprinid fish


Thermal acclimation and muscle contractile properties in cyprinid fish



American Journal of Physiology 259(2 Pt 2): R231-R236

After several weeks of cold acclimation, the swimming performance of some fish is increased at low temperatures and decreased at high temperatures. The temperature compensation of locomotory activity involves changes in central patterns of muscle fiber recruitment and in the properties of the peripheral nervous system and muscle tissues. In some freshwater fish belonging to the family Cyprinidae, including the goldfish (Carassius auratus), the common carp (Cyprinus carpio), and the roach (Rutilus rutilus), the intrinsic contractile properties of muscles are modified by thermal acclimation. Parameters that can be altered by temperature acclimation in both fast and slow muscle fibers include isometric twitch contraction time, maximum force production, and unloaded shortening speed. The molecular mechanisms responsible for these changes in contractility are discussed.
