be transmitted to adjacent cell Also contain gap junctions Linked transmembrane proteins Allow direct movement of ions from one cell to net cell Electrically couple heart muscle so that waves of depolarization can contract almost simultaneously Contraction in Cardiac Muscle m Occurs via sliding filament movement as in skeletal muscle a An AP is required to initiate contraction AP opens
