Spatial variation in cytosolic metabolite concertation and force dynamics under normoxia and hypoxia.

<p>(A): Steady state profiles of ADP/ATP ratio. ADP/ATP is significantly higher in the anoxic cell core under low O<sub>2</sub> supply (B): ATP hydrolysis rate is similarly lower in the cell core under hypoxic condition (C): Peak twitch force (F<sub>peak</sub>) is significantly higher in the cell core under hypoxia (D): Increased F<sub>peak</sub> is complemented by increased twitch duration in the cell core, which can lead to loss of energy in the form of shear strain.</p>
