Presentation on theme: "SKELETAL MUSCLE NOTES."— Presentation transcript:


2 Terms epi = upon peri = around endo = within or inner mys = muscle
sarco = flesh lemma = husk fasci = bundle


4 Structure of skeletal muscle fiber

5 A sarcomere

6 Twizzler analogy Many packages of Twizzlers = Fascicle

7 Twizzler analogy 2 1 package of Twizzlers = Muscle fiber
The packaging = Sarcolemma

8 Twizzler analogy 3 1 bundle of twizzlers = myofibril

9 Twizzler analogy 4 1 Twizzler strand = Filament

10 Terms associated with skeletal muscles
Tendon- Attaches muscle to bone

11 Ligament- Attaches bone to bone

12 Origin- The location where the muscle is attached to the relatively immovable end of the bone

13 Insertion- end of the muscle that is attached to the movable bone

14 Prime mover- the muscle that provides most of the movement

15 Synergist- muscle that assists the prime mover

16 Antagonist- the muscle that opposes the action of the prime mover

17 Muscle Contraction

18 Neuromuscular Junction

19 Neuromuscular junction animation

20 Sliding Filament theory
Boat = Myosin (thick filament) Oar = Myosin side arm Water = Actin (thin filament) Life ring = Calcium

21 Resting ATP is bound to myosin side arm.
ATP cleaves into ADP + P (high energy)

22 Step 1 Action potential A nerve action potential releases acetylcholine into the synaptic cleft opening the Na+ channels. Action potential spreads across sarcolemma releasing Ca into sarcoplasma

23 Step 2 Myosin-actin binding
Ca binds to troponin A shape change in troponin moves tropomyocin out of the way of actin binding site Actin and myosin bind using energy from cleaved ATP.

24 Step 3 Power Stroke Side arm pivots so myosin and actin slide by each other shortening the sarcomere. ADP and P released (low energy)

25 Step 4 ATP binding and actin-myosin release
A different ATP molecule binds to active site. Actin released

26 Step 5 ATP cleavage Return to high energy state
Cycle will repeat if Ca still available.

27 A few thoughts The boat (myosin) does not move far in one cycle, a muscle contraction requires many cycles What happens if ATP is not available? Muscle stays contracted- cramps Why does rigor mortis occur? ATP is not available to control Ca release so contractions are continuous 6-8 hours after death. Body relaxes hours as enzymes break down contractile structures

28 Sarcomere summary

29 Final animation animation 2 Watch “Distonia: movie
