Clues

  • Created by hydrolysis of ATP (3, 3, 2)
  • Head group bends back, causing thin filament to be pulled along and overlap with thick filament (5, 6)
  • Maintenance of ATP involving mitochondria (7)
  • Maintenance of ATP supply that produces lactic acid (9)
  • Myosin head attatches to surroudning actin filaments forming... (11)
  • Phosphate group from this is used to maintain ATP supply (8, 9)
  • Rod-shaped protein (11)
  • Smallest contractile unit of a muscle (9)
  • Thick filament (6)
  • This is released when an action potential arrives (7, 4)
