New cards
67

three types of muscle tissue

skeletal, cardiac, smooth

New cards
68

skeletal muscle tissue functions

move bones, generate heat (friction of contraction), maintain posture, facial expressions

New cards
69

epimysium

outermost connective tissue covering of a muscle; extends from the tendons that attack muscle to bone

New cards
70

fascicles

bundle of tens of thousands of individual muscle fibers (cells)

New cards
71

perimysium

surrounding of each fascicle

New cards
72

muscle fiber

actual muscle cells; each covered by an endomysium

New cards
73

myofibrils

repeated contractile units that compose muscle fiber

New cards
74

myofibril composition

light and dark bands that give appearance of striations; myofilaments

New cards
75

myofilaments

overlapping protein fibers that make up myofibrils

New cards
76

actin

thin (myo)filaments

New cards
77

myosin

thick (myo)filaments

New cards
78

sarcomere

place of filament overlap (actual contractile unit)

New cards
79

irritability

ability to receive and respond to stimulus (nerve impulse)

New cards
80

contractility

ability to contract in response to a nerve impulse

New cards
81

first step of nerve stimulus

impulse reaches end of neuron at neuromuscular junction

New cards
82

second step of nerve stimulus

neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) is secreted into synaptic cleft between dendrite and muscle cell

New cards
83

third step of nerve stimulus

ACh binds to receptors on the sarcolemma (endomysium), opends gated sodium channels

New cards
84

fourth step of nerve stimulus

Na+ rush into cell, building action potential

New cards
85

final step of nerve stimulus

action potential reaches threshold, impulse moves down the entire muscle fiber, causing contraction

New cards
86

action potential releases

Ca+ (calcium) from sarcoplasmic reticulum

New cards
87

Ca+ bind to

actin (thin) filaments, exposing binding sites for myosin

New cards
88

cross-bridges

formation of bound myosin filament heads to newly exposed actin filaments

New cards
89

shortening of myofibrils caused by

pulling of myosin heads towards center of sarcomere

New cards
90

ATP energy

required to recock myosin heads / reattach to actin filaments

New cards
91

relaxation occurs

when action potential subsides (calcium is reabsorbed, sarcomere returns to resting state

New cards
92

all or none

individual muscles will contract fully, never partially

New cards
93

graded contraction

varying of the number of muscle cells that contract and the rate at which they contract, depending on force needed

New cards
94

aerobic cellular respiration

assembling of ATP energy in mitochondria, requires oxygen

New cards
95

muscle fatigue

occurs when oxygen levels drop, causing cell resp. to slow and limiting ATP available for contraction

New cards
96

anaerobic respiration

breakdown of glucose w/o oxygen, increases lactic acid fermentation, causes cramping

New cards
97

lack of ATP effect

muscle failure

New cards
98

twitch

single muscle contraction

New cards
99

summing

successive contractions that lead to stronger and smoother contractions

New cards
100

tetanus

contraction & relaxation occurring so rapidly that no apparent relaxation occurs, results in cramping

New cards
