Sample text

The thin myofilaments are composed mostly of the protein actin, which is arranged in two strands intertwined into a helical structure. Within the groove of this helix structure sit two strands of the protein tropomyosin, upon which at regular intervals sits the protein troponin. The troponin complex includes three subunits: (a) troponin I, which binds to actin, (b) troponin C, which binds to calcium ions, and (c) troponin T, which binds to tropomyosin. The thick filaments are composed mostly of the protein myosin.

As the myosin head is now attached to the actin filament this rotation causes the filaments to slide across each other. The filaments then detach and the myosin head returns to its original position. Once contraction is finished Ca2+ is returned to the sarcoplasmic reticulum via a Ca2+ pump, and the myosin binding site on the actin filament is hidden once more. This process is reviewed in Fig. 5. Proprioception Neural control of skeletal contraction and thus movement of the body and limbs is dependent upon the CNS receiving feedback about where the individual body parts are in relation to each other.

This cycle is powered by ATP and dependent upon the release of calcium ions (Ca2+) from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. C2 – Motor-neural control of contraction and relaxation Proprioception Related topics 39 Neural control of skeletal contraction and thus movement of the body and limbs is dependent upon the CNS receiving feedback about where the individual body parts are in relation to each other. This feedback to the CNS is provided from receptors in the periphery termed proprioceptors.
