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
