Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    The Physiology of Contraction:When nervous impulses reach the end of the nerve cell stimulating the release of Ca++ from the sarcoplasmic reticulum.1) Ca++ is released into the rest of the cell.2) Troponin is attached to tropomyosin.3) Ca++ attaches to troponin.4) Troponin changes shape when Ca++ attaches to it.5) Troponin moves Tropomyosin away from the sites on actin to which myosin will attach.6) After myosin attaches to actin, it changes shape pulling actin toward the center of the sarcomere, shortening it.
  • 2. 
    Sliding Filament Theory of Contraction:During muscle contraction the thin actin filaments slide past the thick myosin filament.1) Myosin head attaches to actin. (high energy configuration)2) Power stroke: Myosin head pivots (changes to low energy configuration) pulling the actin filaments toward the center of the sarcomere.3) The myosin cross bridge detaches.4) Cocking of the myosin head occurs when ATP is added to myosin and is changed to ADP + P to release energy from ATP and to add that energy to myosin (now in high energy configuration again)
  • 3. 
    To end a contraction:1) Ca++ is removed from the troponin and moved to tehe sarcoplasmic reticulum again.2) Troponin changes back to original shape.3) Tropomyosin then moves back and blocks the myosin binding site on actin.
