What is 1 + 3?
This muscle tissue is the wall of hollow visceral organs such as stomach, urinary bladder, and respiratory passages.
This muscle tissue's major function is to propel substances with the body in a definite pathway.
This type of muscle tissue has no striations.
What muscle tissue has slow, rhythmic contractions?
Slow, rhythmic contractions that move substance through the body is also known as what?
This type of muscle tissue is the walls of the heart.
This type of muscle tissue's major function is to pump blood throughout the body.
This type of muscle tissue has striations of branching fibers and intercalated disk.
This type of muscle tissue has a medium speed of contraction.
This type of muscle tissue is attached to bones or sometimes skin.
This type of muscle tissue's major function is body movement.
This type of muscle tissue's major function is Maintaining posture.
This type of muscle tissue's major function is to stabilize joints.
This type of muscle tissue's major function is to generate heat.
This type of muscle tissue has rapid contractions with great force.
Muscle cell cytoplasm.
Muscle cell membrane
Contractile organelles found in the sarcoplasm.
The smallest muscle unit.
What tiny contractile unit consist of dark and light bands?
A chain of this contractile chain together to form a myofibril.
This protein filament can split ATP.
This protein filament is the part in a sarcomere that moves.
Which is darker myosin or actin?
Which is lighter myosin or actin?
Skeletal muscle cells must be stimulated by _________ to contract.
One motor neuron and the skeletal muscle cells it stimulates.
A Neurotransmitter released from the motor end plates of a motor neuron.
A Neurotransmitter that stimulates an action potential in a muscle.
The amount of acetylcholine needed to make a muscle contract at a given time.
A Neurotransmitter released by the motor end plates that erase the effects of acetylcholine.
True or false, a muscle cell can contract partially if needed.
How many contractions will a single nerve impulse cause?
What is the period of time between stimulus and response.
What is the time when muscle cannot respond to stimulus.
What energizes actin filaments?
Calcium ions are normally stored in what part of the muscle?
Different degrees of shortening of an entire muscle.
A single, brief, jerky contraction from an isolated stimulus.
Frequent stimuli sum together and the contractions get stronger and smoother.
More stimuli than summation with less chance for muscle relaxation.
Rapid stimuli with no relaxation.
Contraction is smooth and sustained.
Continuous partial contraction.
Primary energy source for muscle contraction.
Each molecule contains 2 high energy phosphates.
Each molecule contains 1 high energy phosphate.
This substance can provide a net gain of 36 phosphates.
This energy source is third because it takes longer to use and required oxygen.
Muscles only store 4 -6 seconds of this substance.
Muscle fibers are tired and weakened.
As oxygen debt grows, what starts to accumulate in the muscle.
Muscle shortens and visible movement occurs.
Actin can't move because muscle is against immovable object.
Exercises designed to increase blood flow to muscles and endurance.
Exercises designed to increase muscle size.
Muscle destroying disease that effects specific muscle groups.
Destruction of acetylcholine receptors so that muscle cells don't stimulate properly.
Painful involuntary contraction.
Painful inflammation of a tendon often from overuse.
