The flashcards below were created by user nadavklein on FreezingBlue Flashcards.

  1. Muscle functions and special characteristics
    Movement, maintenance of posture, joint stabilization, heat generation

    • Special characteristics:
    • contractility, excitability, extensiility, elasticity
  2. Types of Muscle Tissue
    • Skeletal- striated, voluntary movement, 40% body weight
    • Cardiac- Striated, non-voluntary
    • Smooth-non-striated, non-voluntary (in most organs)
  3. Similarity of muscle cells
    • elongated cells called fibers
    • contraction due to myofilaments, (myo=muscle) actin and myosin.
    • Plasma membrane is called sarcolemma, cytoplasm is sarcoplasm.(sarcos=flesh,muscles) (lemma=sheath)
  4. Connective tissue and fascicles (features of skeletal muscle)
    • epimysium- "outside the muscle" overcoat of dense irregular connective tissue around the whole muscle
    • perimysium-fibrous connective tissue around bundle of muscle cells, fascicle.
    • Endomysium- mostly reticular fiber surrounding each muscle fiber
    • Three sheaths are continuous with tendon,connective tissue that connects bone to muscleImage Upload
  5. Nerves and blood vessels (features of skeletal muscle)
    • each skeletal muscle is supplied by at least one nerve, artery and vein.
    • lost of vascular tissue, to supply lots of blood
  6. Muscles attachment (features of skeletal muscle)
    • muscles go between bones and cross at lease one joint (biarticular if two-joints)
    • Origin of muscle is attachment of bone that moves less, insertion, attachment to bone that moves more (can switch)
    • direct attachments - connective tissue is short (muscle seems attached to peristeum), as opposed to indirect attachment
  7. The skeletal muscle fiber
    • long cylindrical cells (centimeters long)
    • multinucleated made of many fused cells
  8. myofibrils and sacromeres

  10. Sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR)
    • elaborate tubules of smooth endoplasmic reticulum that surround each myofibril.

    • Image Upload
    • SR stores Ca2+. released to stimulate contraction
  11. T tubules
    • contractions in skeletal muscle are conducted along sacrolemma, then to T tubules, sarcolemma invaginations between terminal cisterna. 
    • (terminal cisterna and T tubules sandwich is triad)Image Upload
  12. Mechanism of muscle contraction (two-types)
    concentric contraction- muscle shortens and does work. Myosin heads attach to (thin) actin, contracts and repeats. (shortens distance between Z-discs)

    Eccentric contraction- muscle generates force as it lengthens, (gravity fighting)
  13. Mechanism of muscle extensioon
    opposite muscle contraction
  14. Titin (in muscle)
    Small springlike protein that attaches myosin to the Z-disc
  15. innervation of skeletal muscle

    • axon meets fiber at neuromuscular junction

    not bundled: weak overall muscle contraction (motor unit)Image Upload
  16. Slow Oxidative fibers (type 1 of muscle fibers)
    • lots of myoglobin, relatively thin (not much power) use aerobic metabolic functions, lots of mitochondria contract slowly, extremely resilient as long as oxygen is present. 
    • postural muscles,
  17. Fast Glycolytic Fibers (type IIx of muscle fibers)
    contain little myoglobin, use anerobic pathways, few mitochondria, have glycosomes containing glycogen, strong, contract rapidly and tire quickly. (for lifting heavy objects)
  18. Fast Oxydative Fibers (type IIa of muscle fibers)
    Contract quickly, oxygen dependant (lots of myoglobin),lots of mitochondira and cappiliaries, fatgue slowly
  19. Muscular dystrophy (muscle disorder)
    • genetic. 
    • Connective tissue and fat enlarge muscles and muscle fibers degenerate
    • Duchenne muscular dystrophy, lacking protein dystrophin.
  20. Myofascial pain syndrome (muscle disorder)
    painful tightening bands of muscle fibers when skin is touched
  21. Skeletal muscle tissue throughout life
    • mesoderm cell, myoblasts, develop in embryo. Form contracting muscles by 7 weeks.
    • Muscle cells dont undergo mitosis, just thicken and lengthen.
    • Sarcopenia  "flesh wasting" of old people. muscles generally weaken 50% by age 80
  22. Arrangement of Fascicles in Muscles
    • Convergent- Broad origin, converge to tendon of insertion (pectoralis major)
