Thin filament A thin filament consists of two strands of actin subunits twisted into a helix plus two types of regulatory proteins (troponin and tropomyosin). Thin filament Thick filament In the center of the sarcomere, the thick filaments lack myosin heads. Myosin heads are present only in areas of myosin-actin overlap.

Na + K+K+ Ach – Na + K+K+ Degraded ACh Acetyl- cholinesterase Postsynaptic membrane ion channel closed; ions cannot pass. 1 Action potential arrives at axon terminal of motor neuron. 2 Voltage-gated Ca 2+ channels open and Ca 2+ enters the axon terminal. 3 Ca 2+ entry causes some synaptic vesicles to release their contents (acetylcholine) by exocytosis. 4 Acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, diffuses across the synaptic cleft and binds to receptors in the sarcolemma. 5 ACh binding opens ion channels that allow simultaneous passage of Na + into the muscle fiber and K + out of the muscle fiber. 6 ACh effects are terminated by its enzymatic breakdown in the synaptic cleft by acetylcholinesterase.

21 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 9.13a Spinal cord Motor neuron cell body Muscle Nerve Motor unit 1 Motor unit 2 Muscle fibers Motor neuron axon Axon terminals at neuromuscular junctions Axons of motor neurons extend from the spinal cord to the muscle. There each axon divides into a number of axon terminals that form neuromuscular junctions with muscle fibers scattered throughout the muscle.

22 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Motor Unit Small motor units in muscles that control fine movements (fingers, eyes) Large motor units in large weight-bearing muscles (thighs, hips)

23 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Motor Unit Muscle fibers from a motor unit are spread throughout the muscle so that a single motor unit causes weak contraction of entire muscle Motor units in a muscle usually contract asynchronously; helps prevent fatigue

24 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 9.17 Motor unit 1 Recruited (small fibers) Motor unit 2 recruited (medium fibers) Motor unit 3 recruited (large fibers)

25 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Muscle Tone Constant, slightly contracted state of all muscles Due to spinal reflexes that activate groups of motor units alternately in response to input from stretch receptors in muscles Keeps muscles firm, healthy, and ready to respond

26 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Muscle Metabolism: Energy for Contraction ATP is the only source used directly for contractile activities Available stores of ATP are depleted in 4–6 seconds

27 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Muscle Metabolism: Energy for Contraction ATP is regenerated by: Direct phosphorylation of ADP by creatine phosphate Anaerobic pathway Aerobic respiration

28 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Anaerobic Pathway At 70% of max contractile activity: Bulging muscles compress blood vessels Oxygen delivery is impaired Build up lactic acid

29 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 9.19b Energy source: glucose Glycolysis and lactic acid formation (b) Anaerobic pathway Oxygen use: None Products: 2 ATP per glucose, lactic acid Duration of energy provision: 60 seconds, or slightly more Glucose (from glycogen breakdown or delivered from blood) Glycolysis in cytosol Pyruvic acid Released to blood net gain 2 Lactic acid O2O2 O2O2 ATP

30 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Effects of Exercise Aerobic (endurance) exercise: Leads to increased: Muscle capillaries Number of mitochondria Myoglobin synthesis Results in greater endurance, strength, and resistance to fatigue May convert fast glycolytic fibers into fast oxidative fibers

31 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Effects of Resistance Exercise Resistance exercise (typically anaerobic) results in: Muscle hypertrophy (due to increase in fiber size) Increased mitochondria, myofilaments, glycogen stores, and connective tissue

32 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. The Overload Principle Forcing a muscle to work hard promotes increased muscle strength and endurance Muscles adapt to increased demands Muscles must be overloaded to produce further gains

33 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Smooth Muscle Found in walls of most hollow organs (except heart) Usually in two layers (longitudinal and circular)

Figure 9.26 Small intestine (a) (b) Cross section of the intestine showing the smooth muscle layers (one circular and the other longitudinal) running at right angles to each other. Mucosa Longitudinal layer of smooth muscle (shows smooth muscle fibers in cross section) Circular layer of smooth muscle (shows longitudinal views of smooth muscle fibers)

35 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Peristalsis Alternating contractions and relaxations of smooth muscle layers that mix and squeeze substances through the lumen of hollow organs Longitudinal layer contracts; organ dilates and shortens Circular layer contracts; organ constricts and elongates

36 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Contraction of Smooth Muscle Very energy efficient (slow ATPases) Myofilaments may maintain for prolonged contractions

37 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Special Features of Smooth Muscle Contraction Hyperplasia: Smooth muscle cells can divide and increase their numbers Example: estrogen effects on uterus at puberty and during pregnancy

38 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Developmental Aspects With age, connective tissue increases and muscle fibers decrease By age 30, loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia) begins Regular exercise reverses sarcopenia Atherosclerosis may block distal arteries, leading to intermittent claudication and severe pain in leg muscles
