Load-elongation curves for several soft tissues are shown in Figure 1-12. The viscoelastic behavior of ligaments is best exemplified in the bone-ligament-bone complex. Anterior cruciate ligaments in primate knee specimens were tested in tension to failure at both slow and fast loading rates to determine the viscoelastic nature of the bone-ligament-bone complex. At slow loading rates the bony insertion of the ligament was the weakest link, and an avulsion resulted. At fast loading rates, the ligament was the weakest link, and a midsubstance rupture generally was found.

Currently, it is believed that the costameres serve at least three different functions: (1) aligning the sarcolemma with the cytoskeleton; (2) maintaining membrane integrity during different types of contractions, preventing injury to the sarcolemma; and (3) possibly playing a role in the lateral transmission of force. From a structural perspective, costameres are found aligned with the Z- and M-lines. This linkage occurs as a result of so-called intermediate filaments. It should be noted that mutations in the costameric structure are thought to be involved in some of the muscular dystrophies.

In this manner, the globular head of the myosin heavy chain is prevented from binding to actin, leading to decay in force production and causing the muscle to relax. As mentioned earlier, there are a number of isoforms for the contractile and regulatory contractile proteins. Isoforms have also been identified for the Ca 2+ release channels and Ca2+ ATPase pumps of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. These different isoforms play a key role in determining the rate of activation (ie, the release of Ca2+) and relaxation (resequestration of Ca2+).
