d. all of the above

The following are the main steps in the generation of an action potential. Choose the proper sequence of events.
1. voltage gated sodium channels are inactivated
2. voltage regulated potassium, channels open and potassium moves out of the cell, initiating repolatization

Identify the false statement

skeletal muscle contraction is always under conscious control.

The purpose of transverse tubules is to

rapidly conduct action potential to the interior...

When a muscle cell contracts ______.

some myosin heads form cross bridges as others release actin

As ATP binds to myosin head at the beginning of a muscle contraction cycle

the myosin head detaches from actin

The power stroke begins when ____.

the inorganic phosphate and ADP are released from the myosin

As the conclusion of the power stroke

all of the above

The contraction cycle is triggered by the rise in ______ released from the sacroplasmic reticulum


Put these events in the correct chronological sequence:
1. end plate potential trigger action potentials
2. transverse tubules convey potentials into the interior of the cell
3. acetycholine binds to receptors on the motor end plate.
4. binding sites on asctin are uncovered, allowing myosin to bind and carry out power strokes.
5. Ca++ is released from the sacroplasmic reticulumn.
