Bone forming cell
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
During contraction, the A band gets shorter or remains the same
Stimulation of hormone production by neuron
Muscle fiber that requires oxygen
Muscle contraction without shortening of muscle
Which hormone raises blood sugar
What happens without the above chemical
Pathology: too much cortisone
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
Microscopic anatomy: midline of myosin fiber
Pathology: hyperthyroidism

QuestionAnswer
Chemical required for muscle contraction
Stimulation of hormone production by imbalance in the blood
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
