You are watching: Which one of the following statements about muscle is most accurate


a) Myofibres of skeletal muscle cells contain numerous myofibrils that are divided into sarcomeres.
b) The arrangement of thick myosin and thin actin filaments give the sarcomeres of skeletal muscle a striated appearance under the microscope.
c) In skeletal muscle Z discs of proteins at each end of the sarcomeres have the actin filaments attached to them.
d) The arrangement of thin myosin and thick actin filaments give the sarcomeres of skeletal muscle a striated appearance under the microscope.

Question 2

Which of the following statements about the structure of the thick and thin filaments in skeletal muscle is correct?


d) The power stroke of skeletal muscle contraction occurs when the myosin head releases ADP and Pi.

Question 4

Which of the following statements about the role of calcium (Ca2+) during skeletal muscle contraction is correct?


a) Ca2+ released into a myofibril by the action of a nerve impulse binds to a site on the myosin head to initiate contraction.
b) Ca2+ released into a myofibril by the action of a nerve impulse binds to a site on tropomyosin to initiate contraction.
c) Ca2+ released into a myofibril by the action of a nerve impulse binds to a site on the actin to initiate contraction.
