- composed of myofibrils, containing filaments

12

where would you find only myosin and no actin?

H-zone

at the _-line thick filaments are held together by the protein ______.

at the _M_-line thick filaments are held together by the protein _myomesin_.

17

T-tubules

deep invaginations, continuous with the sarcolemma, which circle each sarcomere at the junctions of the A and I bands.

18

in skeletal muscle, how many tubules per sarcomere?

2

 

19

function of transverse tubules

allow action potentials to be carried deep within the muscle cell.

20

sarcoplasmic reticulum

calcium storage site. The terminal cisternae of the SR lie close to the T-tubules

21

contracted myofibril

order the follwing from smallest to largest

- myofibril

- muscle

- sarcomere

- myofilament

- myocyte

smallest

1. myofilament

2. sarcomere

3. myofibril

4. myocyte

5. muscle

largest

23

How many myosin subunits?

- 2

- one globular head and one tail

- tails intertwine to form a helix

24

Each myosin head is an enzyme that...

hydrolyses ATP (ATPase)

25

where would you find the binding site to which actin attaches?

myosin head

26

how is actin arranged in thin filaments

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

double stranded helical actin chains

27

__________ and _________ are regulatory proteins associated with actin in skeletal/cardiac muscle

_Troponin_ and _tropomyosin_ are regulatory proteins associated with actin in skeletal/cardiac muscle

28

label 1,2 and 3

Q image thumb

1 .troponin

2. actin

3. tropomyosin

29

sliding filament theory of muscle conrtaction

sarcomere shortens as thin filaments are pulled over thick filaments

30

outline the 4 steps of the cross-bridge cycle

  1. cross-bridge formation
  2. power stroke
  3. detachment
  4. energization of myosin head

31

what must be present for the cross-bridge to form? why?

Ca2+ makes the actin site available

32

what is the one region of the sarcomere that doesn't change in length/size during contraction?

A bands

33

what is happening when the crossbridge forms?

myosin binds to the actin binding site (to form the crossbridge)

34

what is occuring in the power stroke

- ADP is released (energy has been used)

- the myosin head rotates to its low energy state (45to the actin)

= sarcomere shortens

35

what must happen for myosin to detach from actin?

a new ATP molecule binds to the myosin. This weakens the actin-myosin binding.

36

energization of the myosin head

- myosin head hydrolyses the ATP to ADP + Pi

- myosin moves back to its high energy conformation (90to the actin)

37

Calcium binds to the _______, inducing a conformational change which pulls _________ off the ______ binding site. Therefore these sites are now available. As long as _______ is present above its threshold of (____-____mM) the cycle will continue.

Calcium binds to the _troponin_, inducing a conformational change which pulls _tropomyosin_ off the _myosin_ binding site. Therefore these sites are now available. As long as _calcium_ is present above its threshold of (_0.001_-_0.01_mM) the cycle will continue.

38

how does calcium enter the cytosol of muscle fibres/cells?

calcium moves down its electrochemical gradient when the calcium channels in the sarcoplasmic reticulum open

39

how does Ca2+ return to the SR?

Ca2+ ATPase transport pumps are constantly working to move calcium from the cytoplasm to the SR.

40

what is Isotonic muscle contraction? what stays the same and what changes?

- shortening

- tension constant

- velocity variable

41

what is isomeric muscle contraction? what stays the same and what changes?

- no shortening

- length constant

- tension variable

42

where would you find Intercalated discs?

in cardiac muscle, connecting the cells together

43

where would you find the I-band and the A-band?

Q image thumb

I band = 2 (notice how it has become much smaller in length during contraction)

A band = 1 (same length always)

44

calcium interact with troponin in ______ regulated muscle and interact with calmodulin in _______ regulated muscle.

calcium interact with troponin in _actin_ regulated muscle and interact with calmodulin in _myosin__ regulated muscle.

45

what is rigor mortis and what causes it?

stiff muscles caused by the absence of ATP, so the cross bridge can't detach

46

when does the cross bridge cycle end?

when Ca2+ is actively transported back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum

47

which number shows...

(a) active tension

(b) passive tension

(c) total tension

Q image thumb

  1. = total tension
  2. = passive tension
  3. = active tension

48

length-tension relationship

maximum force produced by the sarcomere is dependent on the degree of actin and myosin overlap

49

in which type of muscle contraction can the legth-tension relationship be observed?

isometric

50

what happens when the sarcomere is less than 2.0μm?

filaments collide and interfere with each other, reducing the force developed

51

what happens, in the sarcomere, at lengths greater than 2.2μm?

active forced decline because the extent of overlap between filaments reduces, reducing the number of cross-bridges that can form

52

at which length is the sarcomere able to produce the greatest force?

2.0μm-2.2μm

53

pasive force = 

as muscle is streched, the connective tissue around the muscle fibres resist the stretch

54

active tension is dependent on?

sarcomere legnth

55

total tension = 

passive tension + active tension

56

myocyte

another name for a muscle cell
