which component in smooth muscle acts in a way similar to Z lines?
thick filaments of muscle are composed of
you can find triads of T tubules and sarcoplasmic reticulum in which type of muscle?
true or false: Myosin light chain dephosphorylation leads to cross-bridge formation between the myosin and the actin, leading to contraction
numerous tubule invaginations of the plasma membrane of myofibers
thin filaments of muscle are composed of
this portion of the troponin complex binds to actin, inhibiting actin-myosin binding
bundles of individual muscle fibers
this portion of the troponin complex binds Calcium
cytoplasm of muscle cell is called...
this structure in striated muscle contains voltage sensor proteins that are activated during depolarization
fascia adherens are located in which portion of the intercalated disk
protein that anchors thick filaments to the Z line
muscle cells
this type of striated muscle is typically mono-nucleate
thin filaments are anchored to the z-line by which protein
True or False: During Bending, the hydrolysis of GTP causes conformational change of myosin.
True or False: In the bending stage of the contraction cycle, the hydrolyzed ADP and inorganic phosphate remain bound to the myosin head.
gap junctions are located in which portion of the intercalated disks
which protein in smooth muscle binds Ca?
An influx of which molecule causes the activation of voltage sensor proteins and in turn the opening of Gated Ca release channels in muscle?
Located in walls of all hollow organs –digestive tract, blood vessels, urinary bladder, bronchial tree
dark A band is bisected by the lighter
highly specialized attachment sites in cardiac muscle
Myofibrils are composed of
G-actin polymerizes to form
a neuron along with specific muscle fiber that it innervates is known as a ___ ___
When the myosin head is tightly bound to the actin molecule of the thin filament, this is known as ...?
thin filaments in smooth muscle form
what binds to the myosin light chain kinase to activate it?
this protein runs in the groove formed by F-actin strands.
the plasma membrane of muscle cells are known as
true or false: smooth muscle contraction can be initiated by mechanical, electrical, and chemical stimuli (all result in increased intracellular Ca2+)
side polar myosin can be found in____?
Name 1 component (there are 2) of thin filaments does striated muscle contain that smooth muscle does not?
connective tissue (reticular fibers) that intimately surround individual muscle fibers
Hydrolysis of ATP occurs during which stage of muscle contraction?
True or False: Attachment begins with the attachment of ATP to the myosin head.
muscle cells are formed from
This Neurotransmitter opens Na+channels, leading to depolarization of sarcolemma and initiation of action potential in myofibers
desmosomes are located in which portion of the intercalated disk
true or false: calponin and caldesmon can be found in striated muscle
True or False: During Release, ATP binds to the myosin head, causing a conformational change, lowering the affinity of myosin for actin.
this portion of the troponin complex anchors troponin to tropomyosin
the place where 2 networks of sarcoplasmic reticulum meet is called
which molecule is required for the initiation of contraction?
an autoimmune disease characterized by extreme muscle weakness. Acetylcholine receptors are blocked by antibodies to the receptor protein
True or False: Attachment is the initial stage of muscle contraction, in which the myosin head is tightly bound to the actin molecule of the thin filament
I band is bisected by which line
True or False: T-tubules much larger in diameter in cardiac muscle than in skeletal muscle.
muscles that do not have striations
connective tissue sheath that surrounds a collection of fascicles
