lengthwise subdivisions of muscle fiber, made of protein filaments (myofilaments) Myofibrils
responsible for muscle contraction myofilaments
type of myofilament made of actin thin filaments
type of myofilament made of myosin thick filaments
attaches to t-tubes to form chambers and transmit AP to myofibril Sarcoplasmic Reticulum
chambers formed by SR terminal cisternae
function of cisternae concentrate ca via ion pumps and release into sarcomeres to begin contraction
