HideShow resource information
what are the three types of muscles
smooth, cardiac, skeletal
1 of 14
whats smooth muscle
contracts without concious control and is found in internal organs not the heart like intestines stomach
2 of 14
whats cardiac muscle
like smooth muscle but only in the heart
3 of 14
whats skeletal muscle
type of muscle used to move like biceps and triceps
4 of 14
what is the skeletal muscle made up of
large bundles of long cells called muscle fibres
5 of 14
whats the membrane of muscle fibre cells called?
the sacelemma
6 of 14
hat is sarcoplasm
a muscle cells cytoplasm
7 of 14
what are the sarcolemma folds across the muscle fibre called?
transverse tubules
8 of 14
how to transverse tubules help
they help spread electrical impulses throughout the sarcoplasm so they reach all parts of muscle fibre
9 of 14
What is the sarcoplsmic reticulum
a network of internal membranes
10 of 14
what do scarcoplasmic reticulum store and relese
ATP
11 of 14
why is the ATP needed
or muscle contraction
12 of 14
