1 Skeletal Muscles Attach to bones Produce skeletal movement (voluntary)
Maintain posture Support soft tissues Regulate entrances to the body Maintain body temperature

2 Properties of Skeletal Muscles
Electrical excitability -ability to respond to stimuli by producing action potentials -two types of stimuli: 1. autorhythmic electrical signals 2. chemical stimuli – e.g. neurotransmitters Contractility -ability to contract when stimulated by an action potential -isotonic contraction: tension develops, muscle shortens -isometric contraction: tension develops, length doesn’t change Extensibility -ability to stretch without being damaged -allows contraction even when stretched Elasticity -ability to return to its original length and shape

3 Muscles: Gross Anatomy
muscles with similar functions are grouped and held together by layers of deep fascia e.g. biceps femoris and brachialis – forearm flexion three layers of connective tissue surround a muscle Epimysium – divides a muscle into fasicles Perimysium – divides a fasicle into muscle fibers Endomysium – divides a muscle fiber into myofibrils

4 Gross Anatomy muscles are surrounded by a fascia (areolar tissue)
remove the fascia – epimysium that surrounds the muscle and divides it into groups called fascicles each individual fascicle is surrounded by a perimysium perimysium divides the fascicle into muscle fibers muscle fiber = individual muscle cell each muscle fiber/muscle cell is surrounded by an endomysium endomysium divides the muscle fiber into protein filaments = myofibrils myofibrils contain a “skeleton” of protein filaments (myofilaments) organized as sarcomeres

5 Muscles: Gross Anatomy
epimysium and perimysium extend off the muscle to become organized as a tendon – attaches to the periosteum of the bone


7 Microanatomy of Skeletal Muscle Fibers
large, multinucleated cells called fibers mature muscle fibers range from 10 to 100 microns in diameter typical length is 4 inches - some are 12 inches long muscle fibers increase in size during childhood = human GH & testosterone testosterone also increases muscle size embryonic development – stem cells (satellite cells) differentiate into immature myoblasts which begin to make the proteins of the myofibrils (i.e. the myofilaments) myoblasts mature into myocytes multiple myocytes fuse to form the muscle cell (muscle fiber) muscle fibers cannot divide through mitosis number of muscle cells predetermined before birth – they get larger as we grow satellite cells can repair damaged/dying skeletal muscle cells throughout adulthood

8 Muscle Cell Anatomy new terminology cell membrane = sarcolemma
cytoplasm = sarcoplasm large amounts of glycogen and myoglobin surrounds the myofibrils myofibrils made up of myofilaments actin & myosin transverse tubules ingrowths of the sarcolemma carry the action potential deep into the fiber flanks the sarcoplasmic reticulum novel internal membrane system = sarcoplasmic reticulum for calcium storage

9 The Proteins of Muscle contractile elements of the myofibrils = myofilaments -2 microns in diameter -give the muscle its striated appearance myofilaments are built of 3 kinds of protein contractile proteins myosin and actin regulatory proteins which turn contraction on & off troponin and tropomyosin structural proteins which provide proper alignment, elasticity and extensibility titin, myomesin, nebulin, actinin and dystrophin two kinds of myofilaments Thin - actin, troponin and tropomyosin Thick – myosin only

10 Sarcomere Structure myosin/thick filament only region = H zone
M line myosin/thick filament only region = H zone thin filament only region = I band length of myosin/thick filaments = A band contraction = “sliding filament theory” thick and thin myofilaments slide over each other and sarcomere shortens

11 Sarcomere Structure sarcomere = regions of myosin (thick myofilament) and actin (part of thin myofilament) bounded by two Z lines thin filaments project out from Z line – actin attached via actinin (structural protein) myosin/thick filaments lie in center of sarcomere - overlap with thin filaments and connect to them via cross-bridges myosin/thick filaments are held in place at the M line at the center and by titin at the Z-line

12 Contraction: The Sliding Filament Theory
Actin proteins in the thin filament have myosin binding sites these sites are “covered up” by troponin and tropomyosin in relaxed muscle removal of troponin/tropomyosin from these sites is required for contraction removal of troponin/tropomyosin is done through binding of calcium to troponin calcium is released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum upon the action potential

13 Contraction: The Sliding Filament Theory
myosin/thick myofilament is a bundle of myosin molecules myosin looks like a “golf club” with a head, a hinge region and a shaft each myosin protein has a globular “head” with a site to bind and breakdown ATP (ATPase site) and to bind actin (actin binding site) binding of actin and myosin binding sites = cross-bridging

14 -for cross bridging- you will need two things:
Increase in Cai Removal of troponin-tropomyosin CONTRACTION Sliding of actin along myosin RESETTING of system -for cross bridging- you will need two things: 1. calcium – uncovers the myosin binding sites on actin – “pushes aside” the troponin- tropomyosin complex 2. myosin head bound to ADP -for contraction – i.e. pivoting of the myosin head into the M line – the myosin head must be empty -to “reset” for a new cycle of cross-bridging – the myosin head must detach and pivot back -the myosin head must bind ATP -once the myosin head pivots back – the ATP is broken down to ADP – head is ready to cross-bridge again – if actin is “ready”

15 Contracted Sarcomere

16 The Neuromuscular Junction
the motor neuron’s synaptic terminal is in very close association with the muscle fiber distance between the bulb and the folded sarcolemma = neuromuscular junction neurotransmitter released = acetylcholine

17 The “Big Picture” AP generated at trigger zone in
pre-synaptic motor neuron 2. AP arrives in synaptic end bulb – causes entry of calcium into end-bulb release of of acetylcholine/Ach Binding of Ach to ligand-gated Na channels on muscle sarcolemma (i.e. Ach receptors) Na+ enters muscle cell = depolarization Muscle membrane potential reaches threshold  Action Potential 6. AP travels along sarcolemma into T-tubules 7. AP “passes by” sarcoplasmic reticulum  release of calcium into sarcoplasm 8. Ca binds troponin-tropomyosin complex & “shifts” it off myosin binding site 9. Cross-bridging between actin and myosin, pivoting of myosin head = Contraction (ATP dependent)

18 Contraction vs. Relaxation
Acetylcholinesterase (AchE) breaks down ACh calcium pumped back into sarcoplasmic reticulum Limits duration of contraction

19 Action Potentials in Nerve and Muscle
Entire muscle cell membrane versus only the axon of the neuron is involved Resting membrane potential nerve is -70mV skeletal & cardiac muscle is closer to -90mV Duration nerve impulse is 1/2 to 2 msec muscle action potential lasts 1-5 msec for skeletal & msec for cardiac & smooth Fastest nerve conduction velocity is 18 times faster than velocity over skeletal muscle fiber

20 Motor Units Each skeletal fiber has only ONE NMJ
motor unit = somatic motor neuron + all the skeletal muscle fibers it innervates number and size of motor units indicate precision of muscle control Motor units fire asynchronously some fibers are active others are relaxed delays muscle fatigue so contraction can be sustained motor units are also intermingled the net distribution of force applied to the tendon remains constant even when a fraction of muscle fibers are relaxed Muscle twitch Single momentary contraction of a motor unit Response to a single stimulus

21 Muscle Metabolism Production of ATP: -contraction requires huge amounts of ATP -muscle fibers produce ATP three ways: 1. Creatine phosphate 2. Anaerobic metabolism 3. Aerobic metabolism

22 Creatine Phosphate Muscle fibers at rest produce more ATP then they need for resting metabolism Excess ATP within resting muscle used to form creatine phosphate creatine – arginine, glycine and methionine made by kidneys and liver phosphorylated by the enzyme creatine kinase takes a phosphate off of ATP and transfers it creatine takes the phosphate off of creatine phosphate and transfers it back to ADP – to make ATP Creatine phosphate: 3-6 times more plentiful than ATP within muscle Sustains maximal contraction for 15 sec (used for 100 meter dash). Athletes often use creatine supplementation gain muscle mass but shut down bodies own synthesis (safety?)

23 Anaerobic Cellular Respiration
Muscles deplete creatine – can make ATP in anaerobically or aerobically Glycogen converted into glucose first ATP produced from the breakdown of glucose into pyruvic acid (sugar) during glycolysis if no O2 present (anaerobic) - pyruvic converted to lactic acid which diffuses into the blood Glycolysis can continue anaerobically to provide ATP for 30 to 40 seconds of maximal activity (200 meter race) If O2 is present the pyruvic acid is converted into acetyl coA (aerobic)

24 Aerobic Cellular Respiration
ATP for any activity lasting over 30 seconds if sufficient oxygen is available, pyruvic acid is converted into acteyl coA Acetyl coA enters the mitochondria to enter the Kreb’s cycle Kreb’s cycle generates NADH and FADH2 (electron carriers) The electrons are carried to an enzymes located on the inner mitochondrial membrane The electrons are then transported along three complexes of enzymes – ultimately transported to oxygen This results in the synthesis of ATP, water and heat Provides 90% of ATP energy if activity lasts more than 10 minutes Each glucose = 36 ATP fatty acids and amino acids can also be used by the mitochondria Fatty acid = ~100 ATP Sources of oxygen – diffusion from blood, released by myoglobin

25 Types of Muscle Fibers Proportions vary with the muscle
classified on how they make their ATP Fast fibers = fast glycolytic Slow fibers = slow oxidative Intermediate fibers = fast glycolytic-oxidative Percentage of fast versus slow fibers is genetically determined Proportions vary with the muscle neck, back and leg muscles have a higher proportion of postural, slow oxidative fibers shoulder and arm muscles have a higher proportion of fast glycolytic fibers

26 Fast Fibers: Large in diameter Contain densely packed myofibrils
Large glycogen reserves powerful, explosive contractions fatigue quickly Fast oxidative-glycolytic (fast-twitch A) red in color (lots of mitochondria, myoglobin & blood vessels) split ATP at very fast rate; used for walking and sprinting Fast glycolytic (fast-twitch B) white in color (few mitochondria & BV, low myoglobin) anaerobic movements for short duration; used for weight-lifting Slow fibers: Half the diameter of fast fibers Three times longer to contract Continue to contract for long periods of time longest to fatigue e.g. marathon runners

27 Classification According to arrangement of fibers and fascicles
Parallel muscles Parallel to long axis of muscle Convergent muscles Fibers converge on common attachment site Pennate muscles One or more tendons run through body of muscle Unipennate, bipennate, multipennate Circular muscles Fibers concentrically arranged

28 Bones & Muscles: Origins and Insertions
Origin – portion of the skeletal muscle that attaches to the more stationary structure Insertion - portion of the skeletal muscle that attaches to the more moveable structure majority of muscles originate or insert from bony markings on the skeleton markings: specific elevations, depressions, and openings of bones bony markings provide distinct and characteristic landmarks for orientation and identification of bones and associated structures. many markings come together to form a joint many markings are often the sites for the origins or insertions of muscles, or a channel for the passage of nerves and vessels 3 kinds of bony markings: depressions – fossa, fissure openings – foramen, canal, meatus processes – condyles, spines, crests, heads, lines, ridges, trochanters, tubercles
