3 IntroductionMuscles are organs made of cells that use chemical energy stored in nutrients to exert a force on the structures they are attached to.Muscle actions provide:Muscle tonePropel body fluids and foodGenerate the heartbeatDistribute heat
4 Introduction 3 types of muscle Skeletal Smooth Cardiac We are going to focus mostly on skeletal muscle in this chapterSkeletal muscle attaches to bones and to the skin of the face and is under conscious control
5 Structure of Skeletal Muscle Composed mostly of skeletal muscle tissue, nervous tissue, blood, and other connective tissuesLayers of connective tissue enclose and separate all parts of a skeletal muscle allowing the parts to move somewhat independently.
6 Skeletal Muscle: Connective Tissue Coverings FasciaSeparates a muscle from its adjacent muscles; covers the whole muscleTendonConnect a muscle to a boneAponeurosesconnects muscle to bone and other muscles
7 Skeletal Muscle: Connective Tissue Coverings EpimysiumClosely surrounds a skeletal musclePerimysiumExtends inward from epimysium & separates the muscle tissue into small sections called fasciclesEndomysiumEach muscle fiber within a fascicle is covered by this
8 Skeletal Muscle Fibers Each muscle fiber forms from many undifferentiated cells that fuse togetherEach muscle fiber is multinucleateShaped like a long, thin cylinder with rounded endsSarcolemma- just beneath the muscle cell membraneSarcoplasm- cytoplasm of the fiber
9 Skeletal Muscle Fibers MyofibrilsBundles of threadlike structures found within muscle fibersFundamental in the muscle contraction mechanismConsist of 2 types of proteinsMyosin- thick filamentsActin- thin filamentsAlternating of the myosin & actin causes the striations found in skeletal muscleSarcomeres- repeating patterns of striations along each muscle fiberAlternating of myosin and actin produce the dark and light striations that you see in skeletal muscles
10 Skeletal Muscle Fibers Striation PatternHas 2 main partsI band (light bands) made of actin filaments connected to z linesA bands (dark bands) made of myosin filaments overlapping thin actin filamentsInclude an H zone which consists of only thick filaments (myosin)
12 Skeletal Muscle Fibers Sarcoplasmic reticulumWithin the sarcoplasm of a muscle fiberNetwork of channels that surrounds each myofibrilMuscle fibers and the connective tissues associated with them are flexible but if they are overstretched they tear. The is commonly called a muscle strain.
13 Skeletal Muscle Contraction Complex interaction of cellular and chemical piecesThe result is movement within the myofibrils where the filaments of actin and myosin slide past each other causing the sarcomere to shorten
14 Skeletal Muscle Contraction Energy SourcesATPMuscle fiber only has enough ATP to contract briefly so it must be able to regenerate ATPCreatine PhosphateInitial source of energy to regenerate ATPMuch more abundant in muscle fibers than ATP, but it cannot supply energy directly to the cellCellular RespirationATP is decomposed to ADP, the energy from creatine phosphate molecules is transferred back to these ADP molecules, quickly phosphorylating them back into ATP .The amount of ATP and creatine phosphate is ususally not enough to support maximal muscle activity for more than 10 seconds…as a result the muscle fibers in an active muscle soon use cellular respiration of glucose to synthesize ATP
15 Skeletal Muscle Contraction 10 steps to muscle contraction1. An action potential is conducted down a motor neuron axon2. The motor neuron terminal releases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh)3. ACh binds to ACh receptors on the muscle fiber4. The sarcolemma is stimulated, an action potential is generated, and the impulse is conducted over the surface of the muscle fiber and deep into the fiber through the transverse tubules.
16 Skeletal Muscle Contraction 5. The impulse reaches the sarcoplasmic reticulum, and calcium channels open. 6. Calcium ions diffuse from the sarcoplasmic reticulum into the sarcoplasm and bind to tropin molecules. 7. Tropomyosin molecules move and expose specific sites on actin. 8. Actin and myosin link, forming cross-bridges. 9. Thin (actin) filaments are pulled toward the center of the sarcomere by myosin cross-bridges increasing the overlap of the thin and thick filaments. 10. The muscle fiber contracts.
17 Skeletal Muscle Relaxation 1. Acetylcholinesterase decomposes acetylcholine, and the muscle fiber membrane is no longer stimulated.2. Calcium ions are actively transported into the sarcoplasmic reticulum.3. ATP breaks linkages between actin and myosin filaments without breakdown of ATP itself4. Breakdown of ATP “cocks” the myosin heads.5. Troponin and tropomyosin molecules inhibit the interaction between myosin and actin filaments.6. Muscle fiber remains relaxed until it is stimulated again.
18 Muscle Fatigue Caused by Decreased blood flow Ion imbalances due to repeated stimulationPsychological loss of desire to continueLactic acid accumulationOxygen debtAccumulates in the muscles when ATP production goes from aerobic to anaerobic
19 Muscular Responses Threshold Stimulus A muscle fiber remains unresponsive until a certain strength of stimulation is reached, once this is reached an action potential is generated and the process of muscle contraction beginsWhen an isolated muscle fiber is exposed to a series of stimuli of increasing strength, the fiber remains unresponsive until a certain strength of stimulation called the threshold stimulus is applied. Once the threshold is reached, an action potential is generated, resulting in an impulse that spreads throughout the muscle fiber, releasing enough calcium ions from the sarcoplasmic reticulum to activate cross-bridge formation and contract the fiber. A single action potential conducted down a motor neuron normally releases enough Ach to bring the muscle fibers to threshold, generating an impulse in the muscle fiber.
20 Muscular Responses Recording a Muscle Contraction Twitch- contractile response of a single muscle fiber to a muscle impulseA twitch consists of a period of contraction, during which the fiber pulls at its attachments, followed by a period of relaxation, during which the fiber pulls at its attachments, followed by a period of relaxation, during which the pulling force declines. These events can be recorded in a myogram. A twitch has a brief delay between the time of stimulation and the beginning of contraction. This latent period, which in human muscle may be less than 2 milliseconds.The length to which a muscle fiber is stretched before stimulation affects the force it will develop. If a skeletal muscle fiber is stretched well beyond its normal resting length the force will decrease. This is because the sacaromeres of that fiber become so extended that some myosin heads cannot reach binding sites on the thin filamnets and cannot contribute to contraction. Conversely at very short fiber lengths, the sarcomeres become compressed, and further shortening is not possible. During normal activities muscle fibers contract at optimal lengths.
21 Muscular Responses Summation The force that a muscle fiber can generate is not limited to the maximum force of a single twitch. A muscle fiber exposed to a series of stimuli of increasing frequency reaches a point when it is unable to completely relax before the next stimulus in the series arrives. When this happens, the individual twitches begin to combine, and the contraction becomes sustained. In such a sustained contraction, the force of individual twitches combines by the process of summation. At higher frequencies of stimulation, as the time spent in relaxation becomes very brief, a condition called incomplete tetanus or partial tetany. When the resulting forceful, sustained contraction lacks even partial relaxation, it is called complete tetanus or complete tetanic contraction.
22 Muscular Responses Types of Contractions Isotonic Contractions (equal force –change in length)—allow you to move thingsConcentric-muscle contracts with greater force than resistance and shortensEccentric- muscle contracts with less force than resistance and lengthensIsometric Contractions – (equal length- change in force) – allow you to sit and hold your postureIn an isotonic contraction the length of the muscle changes but the amount of force does not…in an isometric contraction the length of the muscle doesn’t change but the muscle still contractsMost body movements require both isotonic and isometric contractions. In walking for example certain leg and thigh muscles contract isometrically and keep the limb stiff as it touches the ground, while other muscles contract isotonically bending and lifting the opposite limb.
23 Muscular Responses Fast & Slow Twitch Muscle Fibers 3 types Slow twitch fibers (red fibers)Produce ATP from oxygen making them more resistant to fatigueThese fibers can contract for long periods of time without fatigueFast twitch fibers (white fibers)Produce ATP primarily through glycolysisCan contract rapidly but also fatigue rapidly as lactic acid accumulates in themIntermediate Fibers (white fibers)Can contract rapidly and also have a larger respiratory capacity so they don’t fatigue like fast-twitch fibersMuscle fibers vary in contraction speed and in whether they produce ATP oxidatively or glycolytically. There are atleast three types of muscle fibers found in humans.Slow Twitch Fibers- called red fibers because they contain the red, oxygen storing pigment called myoglobin. These fibers are well supplied with oxygen carrying blood. In addition red fibers, contain more mitochondria, which is an adaptation for the aerobic reactions of cellular respiration. These fibers have a high respiratory capacity and can generate ATP fast enough to keep up with the ATP breakdown that occurs when they contract.Fast twitch fibers- White fibers because they have less myoglobin and have a poorer blood supply than red fibers. These fibers have fewer mitochondria and so the have a reduced respiratory capacity.Intermediate Fibers - A type of white fiver, the fast twitch fatigue resistant fibers. These fibers have the fast twitch speed associated with white fiber with substantial amount of oxidative capacity more characteristic of red fibers
24 Smooth Muscles Smooth muscles lack striations Cells have only one nucleus2 major types of smooth musclesMultiunitVisceralSmooth muscle cells are shorter than the fibers of skeletal muscle and they have a single centrally located nucleus. Remember skeletal muscle cells are multinucleate.
25 Smooth Muscles Multiunit Smooth Muscle Muscle fibers function as separate unitsFound in the irises of the eyes & walls of large blood vesselsContract after stimulation by neurons or certain hormonesThe muscle fibers are less well organized and function as separate units, independent of their neighboring cells. Typically contracts only after stimulation by neurons or certain hormones.
26 Smooth Muscles Visceral Smooth Muscle Fibers respond as a single unit Found in the walls of hollow organs (intestines, stomach, bladder, uterus)Two features- conduction of impulses and rythmicity produce peristalsisPeristalsis- wavelike motion of contractionPeristalsis is what help your body move food from organ in the digestive system to the nextVascular smooth muscleFound in the walls of small blood vessels where it helps control blood pressure and blood flowComposed of sheets of spindle shaped cells held close together by gap junctions.Fibers respond as a single unit, when one fiber is stimulated, the impulse conducted over its surface may excite adjacent fibers that stimulate others.Peristalsis consists of alternate contractions and relaxations of the longitudinal and circular muscles. These movements help force the contents of a tube along its length. In the intestines, for example, peristaltic wves move masses of partially digested food and help to mix them with digestive fluids. Peristalsis in the ureters moves urine from the kidneys to the urinary bladder.
27 Cardiac Muscle Found only in the heart Composed of striated cells joined end to endOpposite ends of cardiac cells are connected by intercalated discsHelp join cells, transmit the force of contraction, & diffuse ions from cell to cellIt is composed of striated cells joint end to end, forming fibers interconnected in branching, three-dimensional networks. Each cell contains a single nucleus and many filaments of actin and myosis similar to those in skeletal muscle. A cardiac muscle cell also has a well-developed sarcoplasmic reticulum, a system of transverse tubules, and many mitochondria.
28 Skeletal Muscle Actions Skeletal action depends onType of joint it is associated withThe way the muscle is attached on either side of the joint
29 Skeletal Muscle Actions Body MovementWhen a body part moves bones and muscles interact as a lever3 types of levers1st class- resistance-fulcrum, force (seesaw; when the arm straightens at the elbow)2nd class- fulcrum- resistance- force (wheelbarrow; when you chew something up)3rd class- resistance-force-fulcrum (tweezers- when the arm bends at the elbow)4 basic components of a leverA rigid bar or rodA fulcrum or pivot on which the bar turnsAn object moved against resistanceA force that supplies energy to move the bar
30 Skeletal Muscle Actions Origin and InsertionOrigin- less moveable end of the muscleInsertion- more moveable end of the muscleWhen a muscle contractsInsertion is pulled toward its originHead of the muscle is the part closest to its originOne end of a skeletal muscle is usually fastened to a relatively immovable or fixed part on one side of a joint, and the other end is connected to a moveable part on the other side of the joint
32 Skeletal Muscle Actions Interaction of Skeletal MusclesAgonist- muscle that causes an actionSynergists- muscles that work togetherPrime mover- muscle that does most of the work during an actionAntagonists- muscle that opposes actionMost skeletal muscles function in groups.A muscle that causes an action is called an agonist for that action. While an agonist is acting, other nearby muscles may also contract and help with the action. Muscles that work together are called synergists. The agonist can also be the prime mover. The antagonist is a muscle that works to oppose an action. These muscles can cause movement that acts in the opposite direction.
