Muscle Fatigue:
A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.
Synonyms: Muscular Fatigue, Fatigue, Muscular

Muscle Fibers:
Large, multinucleate single cells, either cylindrical or prismatic in shape, that form the basic unit of skeletal muscle tissue. They consist of a soft contractile substance enclosed in a tubular sheath. They are derived from the fusion of skeletal myoblasts (MYOBLASTS, SKELETAL) into a syncytium, followed by differentiation.
Synonyms: Fibers, Muscle, Myocyte, Skeletal, Myotube, Skeletal Myocyte

Muscle Fibers, Fast-Twitch:
Skeletal muscle fibers having high myofibrillar ATPase activity, high glycolytic enzyme activities, and an intermediate glycogen content which produce a fast twitch. There are two types. Fast fatigable fibers, also called white fibers, have a low myoglobin content, and a small mitochondrial content, and fatigue rapidly due to their limited glycogen content and low capacity for oxidative metabolism. Fast fatigue-resistant fibers, also called red fibers, have a large mitochondrial content and a high myoglobin content, related to their resistance to fatigue. (From Best, Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p100)
Synonyms: Fast-Twitch Muscle Fiber, Fast-Twitch Muscle Fibers, Fiber, Fast-Twitch Muscle, Fiber, Red Muscle, Fiber, White Muscle, Fibers, Fast-Twitch Muscle, Fibers, Red Muscle, Fibers, White Muscle, Muscle Fiber, Fast-Twitch, Muscle Fiber, Red, Muscle Fiber, White

Muscle Fibers, Slow-Twitch:
Skeletal muscle fibers having low myofibrillar ATPase activity, low glycogen content, and high myoglobin content, high mitochondrial oxidative enzyme activities, and an intermediate mitochondrial content which produce a slow twitch and are fatigue-resistant. (From Best, Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p101)
Synonyms: Fiber, Intermediate Muscle, Fiber, Slow-Twitch Muscle, Fibers, Intermediate Muscle, Fibers, Slow-Twitch Muscle, Intermediate Muscle Fiber, Intermediate Muscle Fibers, Muscle Fiber, Intermediate, Muscle Fiber, Slow-Twitch, Muscle Fibers, Slow Twitch

Muscle Hypertonia:

Dystonia:
A persistent attitude or posture due to the co-contraction of agonists and antagonist muscles in one region of the body. It most often affects the large axial muscles of the trunk and limb girdles. Conditions which feature persistent or recurrent episodes of dystonia as a primary manifestation of disease are referred to as DYSTONIC DISORDERS. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p77)
Synonyms: Dystonia, Diurnal,Dystonia, Limb,Dystonia, Paroxysmal,Diurnal Dystonia,Dystonia, Muscle,Limb Dystonia,Paroxysmal Dystonia
