Table 2. Aequorin Luminescence and Variables of Contractility and Relaxation during Cumulative Concentration–Response Experiments to Sevoflurane (n = 8) in Group 1 Muscles in Isometric Twitches at the Preload of Lmax
Values are mean ± SD.
*P < 0.01, †P < 0.05, one-way repeated-measures analysis of variance followed by comparisons versus control by Bonferroni-corrected paired t tests.
Lmax= length at which twitch active force is maximal; k50/10= slope of logarithm of aequorin luminescence from 50% peak to 10% peak by least-squares linear regression.
