• Sarcomere ◦ Functional unit of skeletal muscle cells ◦ The distance from one z-line to the next ◦ The sarcomere shortens during skeletal muscle contraction ‣ It's quick ◦ Overlapping of thick and thin filaments produces the striations ◦ Anatomy of a Muscle Fiber ‣ Sarcolemma • Plasma membrane of the skeletal muscle fiber ‣ Sarcoplasmic Reticulum • Specialized end opossum reticulum • Stores and releases calcium ions (required for contraction) ‣ T (Transverse) Tubules • Transverse invaginations of the sarcolemma • Allow for rapid propagation of a muscle action potential ◦ Contraction ‣ "Sliding filament" model "Relaxed" muscle cells "Contracted muscle cells Myosin "heads" attached to actin filaments and "pull" together, "shortening" of sarcomere ◦ Energy required - high energy bond of the 3rd P of ATP High energy ◦ Applied to sarcomere for contraction ‣ It's quick ◦ Muscle cells contain many mitochondria - "powerhouse" of cell ‣ Site of bulk of ATP is formed ‣ Requires O2 for aerobic cellular respiration Circulatory System • Cardiovascular System ◦ Cardio - heart ◦ Vascular - tubes • Blood - connective tissue ◦ Transported through body ◦ Protect ◦ Regulate body temperature ◦ Plasma - 55% blood volume ‣ 90% of plasma is water ‣ 10% of plasma are amino acids, glucose, gases (oxygen), enzymes, hormones ‣ Intracellular fluids - fluid within cell ‣ Extracellular fluids - fluid outside cell • Blood plasma • Interstitial fluid ◦ Fluid between cells ◦ Formed elements - cells ‣ Platelets - clotting • Cell fragments or pieces of bone marrow ◦ Contain chemicals in these pieces ‣ Leukocytes (white blood cells) • Not the most abundant cell type • Easy to distinguish ◦ Large nuclei • Nucleated • 7000/cc • Neutrophils ◦ Phagocytic ‣ Consumers ‣ Engulfs bacteria ◦ Usually the first leukocytes into an inflamed area ◦ Clean up debris • Lymphocytes ◦ B-Cells ‣ Produced in bone marrow ◦ T-Cells ‣ Produced in thymus gland • Found in neck ‣ Sometimes called killer cells because they sometimes attack virus infected cells and cancer cells • Monocytes ◦ Phagocytic ◦ Clean up extra red blood cells ◦ The number increases during chronic infection • Eosinophils/Basophils ◦ Limit inflammatory response ‣ Erythrocytes • Red blood cells • Anucleate - mammals ◦ No nucleus • O2 transport • Produced in red bone marrow ◦ Spleen also produces red blood cells • Life span : 120 days (4 months) • 5,000,000/cc • Contain hemoglobin ◦ Iron contained protein ◦ Reddish tint comes from iron ◦ Binds to oxygen ◦ 200,000 hemoglobin molecules per red blood cell • Red blood cell - biconcave • Blood Vessels ◦ Tubes carrying blood ◦ Lined with simple squamous epithelium ◦ Arteries ‣ & arterioles (small artery) ‣ Carry blood away from heart ‣ Smooth muscle layer in wall is thicker than veins ◦ Capillaries ‣ Smallest diameter ‣ Arranged in clusters (beds) ‣ Thin walled - 1 cell thick (epithelium) ‣ Function: gas exchange site between blood and organs and tissues of body • Oxygen diffuses out of vessel • CO2 diffuses in ◦ Veins ‣ & venules (small veins) ‣ Carry blood towards the heart ‣ Thinner smooth muscle layer ‣ Lower pressure vessels ‣ Blood to heart ‣ Some with valves - prevent back flow of blood ◦ Cross Section of Vessels
