  31. 31.  Ca2+ ions sequestered from actin filament by sacroplasmic reticulum.  Ca2+ returns to sacroplasmic reticulum.  Ca2+ released from troponin – Ca2+ complex.  Troponin permits tropomyosin return to blocking position.  Myosin-action cross-bridges break.  ATP – myosin Complex reformed in heads of thick filament.
  32. 32.  Heat production -liberation of heat is always associated with muscle contraction.  Electricity generation -small amount of electrical energy is released.  Volume changes –negligible changes in volume occur.  Change in optical properties -changes in the birefringence and transparency occur at the muscle fiber.  Sound production -muscle sound noted during contraction.
  33. 33.  This theory was evolved independently and more or less simultaneously by A.F Huxley and H.E. Huxley around 1950s.  According to this theory, the force of contraction is developed by the cross bridges in the overlap region.  The active shortening is caused by the movement of the cross bridges, which causes one filament to slide over the other.  During muscle contraction, the actin filaments alone show movement.  But the myosin filaments remain static.  The mechanical movement utilizes the energy derived from the break down of ATP molecules.
  34. 34.  In the resting state, the cross bridges are in slanting position due to negative charges in both the basal and tips of cross bridges due to the concentration of magnesium ions.  After the stimulation of muscle, the release of calcium ions change the electrical character which cause mutual repulsion and shortening of the cross bridges.  The attachment of cross bridges on the actin filaments cause sliding of actin filaments while myosin filaments remain static.
  35. 35.  According to this scheme, there are flexible hinges on myosin: one between S1 heads and the long rods and the second between S2 and the LMM at the trypsin reaction site.  When the head piece(S1 )binds to the exposed site on actin it is thought to rotate.  This type of rotation occurs simultaneously at numerous locations of actin – myosin filaments which cause shortening of the muscle.  The energy for this process derived from the hydrolysis of ATP.
  36. 36.  The muscle are biological motors which convert chemical energy into force and mechanical work.  This biological machinery is composed of proteins – which is actomyosin and the fuel is ATP.  With the use of muscles we are able to act on our environment.
