This type of muscle tissue has branching and intercalated disks.. Cardiac
This two types of muscles tissue have a single nucleus... Cardiac and Smooth
Smooth muscles tissue is found... On the walls of the digestive system and blood vessels.
Skeletal muscles is covered by... Epimysium
Each fascicle (group of muscle cells) is covered by the... Perimysium
An individual muscle cell is a... muscle fiber
Each muscle fiber is covered by the... epimysium
The strong fibrous band of connective tissue that attaches the muscle to the periosteum of the bone... tendon
The movement of blood and lymph is a function of... Skeletal muscles
Maintenance of body temperature is a function of... Skeletal muscles
In a muscle fiber, the plasma membrane is called the... sarcolemma
Cytoplasm in the muscle fiber is known as... sarcoplasm
The endoplasmic reticulum inside a muscle fiber is known as... sarcoplasmic reticulum
In muscle contraction, the axon terminal of a motor neuron releases _______ into the synaptic cleft. acetycholine (Ach)
Acetylcholine binds to receptors on the... sarcolemma of the muscle fiber
Electrical impulses from the sarcolemma are carried into the muscle fiber by the... transverse or T-tubules
In the muscle fiber, calcium is stored in the... sarcoplasmic reticulum
Calcium binds to the protein ______ inside the thin filaments. troponin
When the troponin binds to calcium it causes the _______ to move aside, allowing it access to myosin binding sites on the ______ molecules. tropomyosin, actin
In the final stage of muscle contraction, the corssbridges of thick filaments, or _______, attach to the binding site and a power stroke pulls the thin filament toward the center of the ________. myosin, sarcomere

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
