Red,smallest, large amt of myoglobin, many mitochondria, many capillaries, aerobic cellular respiration, postural muscles(neck), maintaining posture and aerobic endurance
Pink, intermediate in size large amount of myoglobin, many mitochondria, many capillaries, aerobic and anaerobic respiration, lower limb muscles, walking and sprinting.
White, most "powerful" , largest in diameter, small amount of myoglobin, few mitochondria, few capillaries, anaerobic respiration, (15 sec or less-lift and put down), rapid intense movements of short duration
endomysium/ perimysium and epimysium, sarcomere is contractile protein, abundant SR, t-tubules, NO JUNCTION between fibers, no autorhytmicity, source of ca+2 for contraction is SR, troponin and tropomyosin, fast (speed) of contraction, voluntary, contraction regulated by ACh -if none no contraction, regeneration is limited via satellite cells
endomysium only, sarcomere, intercalated disks contain gap junctions and desmosomes(junction between fibers), autorhythmicity, SR and interstitial fluid for source of contraction, troponin and tropomyosin, moderate speed of contraction, involuntary, ACh and norepinephrine released by autonomic motor neurons, regeneration is limited under certain conditions.
NO sacromere, NO t-tubules, NO troponin/tropomyosin, endomysium only, SLOWLY contracts, autorhythmicity, SR and interstital fluid-source of ca+2 for contraction, CALMODULIN AND MYOSIN LIGHT CHAIN KINASE-for regulatory proteins, ACh and norepinephrine regulate contraction, more generation than other two types.
