  10. Function of Skeletal Systems (3)
    • Provide rigidity to body
    • surfaces for muscles attachment
    • protection for internal oragans
  11. Hydrostatic Skeleton in invertebrates
    Body fluid is used as an internal hyrdrostatic skeleton
  12. Hydrostatic Skeleton in earthworms
    Muscles in body wall contract against the coelemic fluids that are incompressible

    Provide rigid elements to which muscles attach
  14. Exoskeleton
    Protective skeleton that often must be molted to allow growth

    Type of connective tissue with calcified extracellular matrix
  19. Osteocytes
    Bone cells
  20. Function of Bones
    • Protection & Support
    • Reservoir for calcium
    • Blood cell production
  21. Cilia
    Protists & Comb Jellies use it to move fluid for respiration & other functions
  22. Flagella
    Action produces different whip-like movement
  23. Skeletal Muscle Tissue (4)
    • Striated 
    • Multi-nucleated
    • Attached to skeleton
    • Voluntary

  29. Two filaments of Myofibrils

    • Thin filament composed of actin
    • Thick filament composed of myasin
  30. Sarcomere
    Unit of the myofibril whose function is contractile
