A motor neuron and all the muscle cells that it stimulates are referred to as a motor endplate

False

Peristalsis is characteristic of smooth muscle.

A contraction in which the muscle does
not shorten but its tension increases is called isometric

One of the important functions of skeletal muscle contraction is production of heat.

True

What is the role of tropomyosin in skeletal muscles?
