The action potential is conducted into a skeletal muscle fiber by ___________________. transverse tubule
The most important factor in decreasing the intracellular concentration of calcium ion after contraction is _______________. active transport of calcium into the sarcoplasmic reticulum
After death, muscle fibers run out of ATP and calcium begins to leak from the sarcoplasmic reticulum into the sarcoplasm. This results in a condition known as _____________. rigor mortis
What happens during rigor mortis? ATP is depleted, the myosin heads are attached to actin, calcium ions keep binding to troponin, sustained contractions occur
Triggering of the muscle action potential occurs after ____________ binds to chemically-gated channels in the motor end plate. acetylcholine
The following is a list of the events that occur during a muscle contraction. What is the correct sequence of these events? 3,5,1,4,6,2
How would the loss of acetylcholinesterase from the motor end plate affect skeletal muscle? it would cause muscles to stay contracted
When acetylcholine binds to receptors at the motor end plate, the sarcolemma becomes ________________. more permeable to sodium ions
The cytoplasm of the neuromuscular terminal contains vesicles filled with molecules of the neurotransmitter ___________. acetylcholine
Synaptic vesicles contain neurotransmitters that are released by _____________ when the action potential arrives. calcium
The muscle weakness of myasthenia gravis results from _____________. exocytosis
A patient takes a medication that blocks ACH receptors of skeletal muscle fibers. What is this drug's effect on skeletal muscle contraction? reduces the muscle ability for contraction
The rapid rise and fill in force produced by a muscle fiber after a single action potential is a(n) ______________. twitch
When a muscle is stimulated repeatedly at a high rate, the amount of tension gradually increased to a steady maximum tension. This state of maximum tension is called ____________. complete tenatus
A muscle producing almost peak tension during rapid cycles of contraction and relaxation is said to in _______________. incomplete tenatus
If a 2nd stimulus arrives before the relaxation phase has ended, a 2nd more powerful contraction occurs. This addition of one twitch to another is called ____________. wave summation
The contraction of a muscle exerts a pull on a bone because muscles attach to bone by _____________. tendons
Differentiate between isometric and isotonic contraction. isometric muscles do not shorten and they have more tension isotonic muscles shorten with tension being put on the muscle

*SHORT ANSWER QUESTION* A hypothetical genetic disease causes the body to produce antibodies that compete with acetylcholine for receptors on the motor end plate. This is a case of competition between acetycholine & the antibody. To make the patient's acetycholine more effective, a drug that inhibits acetycholinesterase would slow the breakdown of acetylcholine, relieving some of the weakness.
*CONTINUED* Patients with this disease exhibit varying degrees of muscle weakness in affected muscle. If you could administer a drug that inhibits acetylcholinesterase/a drug that blocks acetylcholine, which one would you use to alleviate these symtoms? *CONTINUED* An acetylcholine blocker would be worse than doing nothing.
*SHORT ANSWER QUESTION* 30 min. after Mary has completed a 25km race, she begins to notice severe muscle soreness/stiffness in her legs. Her urine is dark. She wonders whether she may have damaged her muscles during the race. She visits the ER. If muscle damage has occurred, dr would find enzymes such as creatine kinase & proteins such as myoglobin or troponin in the bloodstream released by injured skeletal muscle cells. The level of these substances correlates with the severity of the injury.
*CONTINUED* Dr. orders several blood tests. What kind of blood tests can help determine whether muscle damage has occurred?
*SHORT ANSWER QUESTION* Megan wants to enter a weight-lifting competition & consults you as to what type of muscle fibers she needs to develop & how she should go about it. What would you suggest to her? Weight-lifting requires anaerobic endurance. Megan would want to develop her fast fibers for short term maximum strength. She would acheive this by engaging in activities that involve frequent, breif, but intensive workouts, such as heavy weights
*CONTINUED* to the point of muscle fatigue. The fatigue triggers the production of new myofilament proteins, leading to muscle bulk & strength,
The bundle of collagen fibers at the end of a skeletal muscle that attached the muscle to bone is called a(n) ___________ tendon
Describe the recovery period following exercise. muscle fibers are unable to contract
