Presentation on theme: "Fig. 10-3. Myofibrils are surrounded by calcium- containing sarcoplasmic reticulum."— Presentation transcript:

1 Fig Myofibrils are surrounded by calcium- containing sarcoplasmic reticulum.

2 Fig Review of thin and thick filament structure

3 Fig Overview of the process

4 The muscle fiber is stimulated.

5 Fig Overview of the process The muscle fiber is stimulated. Ca 2+ ions are released.

6 Fig “End- on” view of thick & thin filaments, showing the effect of calcium ions after release from the S.R.

7 Fig Overview of the process The muscle fiber is stimulated. Ca 2+ ions are released.

8 Fig Overview of the process The muscle fiber is stimulated. Ca 2+ ions are released. Thin filaments move to middle of sarcomere.

9 Fig Calcium attaches to troponin/ tropomyosin; they roll away, exposing the active site on actin.

10 Fig Myosin cross-bridges attach to active site on actin. After attachment, the cross-bridges pivot, pulling the thin filaments.

11 Fig A fresh ATP replaces the ADP+P i, allowing myosin and actin to detach. Energy from the splitting of the fresh ATP allows repositioning of the myosin head.

12 Fig This leads back to Step 1, which continues the cycle as long as calcium ions are attached to troponin/tropomyosin.

13 Fig Overview of the process The muscle fiber is stimulated. Ca 2+ ions are released. Thin filaments move to middle of sarcomere.

14 Fig Overview of the process The muscle fiber is stimulated. Ca 2+ ions are released. Thin filaments move to middle of sarcomere. Muscle fiber contracts.

15 Fig Overview of the process The muscle fiber is stimulated. Ca 2+ ions are released. Thin filaments move to middle of sarcomere. Muscle fiber contracts. Muscle tension increases.
