Midterm 2 study guide 1 Compare the three types of muscular tissue with their functions and special properties The three types of muscular tissue are skeletal cardiac and smooth Skeletal muscle is primarily attached to the bones striated and under voluntary control Its function is to move the bones of the skeleton Another function includes producing body movements producing heat by shivering and stabilizing body positions Contains connective tissue coverings endomysium perimysium epimysium Cardiac muscle tissue forms the wall of the heart and found only in the heart striated and involuntary Function pump blood throughout the body endomysium perimysium Smooth muscle is located in primarily in internal organs non striated smooth and involuntary Function includes sphincters that close off outlets in organs such as stomachendomysium 2 Explain the importance of connective tissue components blood vessels and nerves to skeletal muscles Connective tissue components Perimysium covers fascicles connective tissue layer that bundles groups of muscle bers into fascicles Epimysium covers the entire muscle Endomysium covers individual muscle bers Fascia a sheet or broad band of brous connective tissue beneath the skin super cial fascia or around muscles or organs deep fascia Allows free movement of muscles Tendon a cord of dense connective tissue that attaches a muscle to the periosteum of a bone some tendons are enclosed in tendon synovial sheaths which permit tendons to slide back and forth more easily aponeurosis a broad at sheet of connective tissue that attaches a muscle to the periosteum of a bone muscle or the skin 0 Nerves and blood vessels skeletal muscles gets its nutrients from blood vessels and it would not be able to function properly without it capillaries bring in oxygen and nutrients remove heat and waste product of muscle metabolism somatic motor neurons stimulates skeletal muscle to contract Arteries and veins accompany each nerve 3 Describe the microscopic anatomy of a skeletal muscle ber and the coverings 0 Growth of a skeletal muscle is achieved primarily by hypertrophy because skeletal muscle bers do not signi cantly increase in number after birth skeletal muscle tissue does have limited powers of regeneration due to the presence of satellite cells which can fuse with or replace existing skeletal muscle bers to a limited extent if signi cant skeletal muscle damage or degeneration occurs skeletal muscle tissue undergoes fibrosis the replacement of muscle ber by brous scar tissue Each muscle ber has a sarcolemma plasma membrane that surrounds the sarcoplasm cytoplasm the latter contains an oxygenbinding protein called myoglobin The sarcoplasm contains numerous myo brils The myo brils contain numerous parallel protein myo laments called thin laments and thick laments that are arranged in functional units called sarcomeres Adjacent sarcomeres are separated by Z discs lines and have regions called the A band I hand H zone and M line and a zone of overlap A band contains myosin troponin tropomyosin and titin I hand containts actin troponin tropomyosin and titin Thick laments consist of myosin molecules with heads or crossbridges Thin laments consist of actin molecules plus two regulatory proteins called troponin and tropomyosin Sarcomeres also contain structural proteins e g titin and dystrophin which keep the thick and thin laments properly aligned give the myo bril elasticity and extensibility and link the myo brils to the sarcolemma and extracellular matrix The sarcoplasm contains the sarcoplasmic reticulum SR with dilated end sacs called terminal cisterns which store calcium ions release of calcium ions into the cytosol triggers muscle contraction The sarcolemma has tunnellike infoldings called transverse tubules T tubules that penetrate into the muscle ber at right angles to the myo laments these T tubules conduct muscle action potentials which cause the release of calcium ions from the SR smallest to largest thick laments gt myo bril gt muscle ber 4 Indicate how a skeletal muscle ber contracts and relaxes by using the zones and bands in the sarcomere Sarcomere is measure from Zline to Zline The more white that is Visible in the Hzone and Iband relaxed When there is more darker lines in the hzone and Iband contraction the H and I band disappear during contraction but thin and thick laments dont change Muscle contraction occurs because myosin heads attach to and walk along the thin laments at both ends of a sarcomere and continues to pull the thin laments toward the M line This results in the thin laments sliding toward the center of the sarcomere Sarcomere shortens because the Z disc come closer together and this leads to the Whole muscle ber and muscle shortening 0 Muscle contraction is triggered When a muscle action potential is propagated along the sarcolemma through the T tubule system and to the sarcoplasmic reticulum Where it causes the release of calcium ions from the SR into the cytosol 0 Muscle tone is a sustained partial state of contraction that gives rmness to a relaxed skeletal muscle in a constantly shifting pattern a feW motor units become active While others become inactive Within a skeletal muscle This is essential for maintaining posture 5 Compare the structure and function of the three types of skeletal muscle bers slow oxidative fast oxidativeglycolytic and fast glycolytic Describe the effects of exercise on different types of skeletal muscle bers 0 slow oxidative type 1 dark red in color because it contains large amounts of myoglobin mitochondria and blood capillaries Generates ATP With high capacity mainly by aerobic cellular respiration It is called slow because it uses ATP at a slow rate Which means that it has a slow speed of contractionHigh fatigue resistance Primary function for maintaining posture and for endurance type activities 0 fast oxidativeglycolytic type Ila Typically the largest bers Also dark red because it contains large amounts of myoglobin mitochondria and blood capillaries Can generate considerable ATP With medium capacity by aerobic cellular respiration and anaerobic glycolysis Which equals to moderately high resistance to fatigue Uses ATP at a fast rate and activities associated With it includes walking and sprinting 0 fast glycolytic type IIb Appears White in color because it is lOW in myoglobin mitchondira content and lOW in blood capillaries Contains large amounts of glycogen and generate ATP With lOW capacity by anaerobic glycolysis LOW fatigue resistance Uses ATP at a fast rate and can contract strongly and quickly Used for intense activities such as weight lifting 6 Outline the arrangement of muscle fascicles and compare With name and strength of muscle Perimysium covers fascicles connective tissue layer that bundles groups of muscle bers into fascicles Epimysium covers the entire muscle Endomysium covers individual muscle bers Ensheathes a muscle ber and is composed mostly from reticular bers It also contains capillaries nerves and lymphatics Construction on muscle fascicles myo brilgt sarcoplasm gtsarcolemma gtendomysium gt ber bundle gtfascicle 7 Describe the main structural and functional characteristics of cardiac and smooth muscle tissue 0 Cardiac and smooth muscle tissue are both involuntary muscle tissues 0 Cardiac is striated and limited to the heart Which makes its main function being to pump blood throughout the body Its cardiocytes are short and thick Has intercalated disks 0 Smooth muscles are non striated Myocytes are relatively small except When in a pregnant woman s uterus Where it becomes larger 0 Both of these muscle tissue has autorhythmicity and regulated by neurons that are part of the autonomic division of the nervous system 8 Distinguish between isotonic and isometric contractions Isotonic contraction occurs When your muscles change length and produce the force necessary to move the joints in your body 0 Isometric contraction occurs Without changes in the length of your muscles or the position of your joints Chapter 11 Muscular System 1 Describe the relationship between bones and skeletal muscles in producing body movements When a muscle contracts an articulating bone moves along with it Skeletal muscles produce movements by exerting force on tendons which pulls on bones and other structures Some bones remains stationary because other muscles stabilizes it by pulling it in the opposite direction or the bone is simply immovable Muscles are attached to bones by tendons at their origin and insertion Originimmovable proximal Insertionmovable distal 2 De ne lever and fulcrum and compare the three types of levers on the basis of location of the fulcrum effort and load Lever is a rigid structure that can be moved around a xed point Fulcrum typically a joint 1st class lever seesaw and scissors can produce either a mechanical advantage or disadvantage depending on whether the effort or load is closer to the fulcrum ex head resting on vertebral column Effort gt Fulcrum gt Load 2nd class lever wheelbarrow most uncommon in the human body This lever produces the most force and always a mechanical advantage because the load is always closer to the fulcrum Effort gt Load gt Fulcrum ex Standing up on toes 3rd class lever pair of forceps most common in the body Always produces mechanical disadvantage because the effort is always closer to the fulcrum than the load Fulcrum gt effort gt load ex elbow joint and biceps brachii 3 Identify the types of fascicle arrangements in a skeletal muscle and relate the arrangements to the strength of contraction and range of motion Parallel longitudinal axes parallel to each other terminate at either end in at tendons and can be at or straplike ex sternohyoid muscle or sartorius most common Fusiform Fascicles nearly parallel to longitudinal axis terminate in at tendons muscle tapers toward tendons where diameter is less than at belly ex digastric muscle or biceps Circular Fascicles in concentric circular arrangements form sphincter muscles that enclose an opening ex orbicular oculi muscle Triangular convergent fascicles spread over broad area converge at thick central tendon gives muscle triangular appearance ex pectoralis major Pennate short fascicles in relation to total muscle length tendon extends nearly entire length of muscle Unipennate fascicles are arranged only in one side of tendon ex extensor digitorum longus Bipennate fascicles are arranged on both sides of centrally positioned tendons ex rectus femoris Multipennate fascicles attach obliquely from many directions to several tendons ex deltoid o The longer the muscle fiber is the greater the range of motion 0 An increase in the number of muscle fibers increases the strength of contraction 4Explain how the prime mover antagonist synergist and fixator in a muscle group work together to produce movement 0 A prime mover produces the desired action Antagonist produces an opposite action Synergists assist a prime mover by reducing unnecessary movement Fixators stabilize the origin of a prime mover so that it can act more ef ciently 5Explain seven features used in naming skeletal muscles Identify the principal skeletal muscles in different regions of the body by name origin insertion action 0 The seven features used in
