The cycle of skeletal muscle contraction and relaxation at the sarcomere level
In this unit we will cover:
First- What is a skeletal muscle?
Skeletal muslce is a type of muscle tissue characterized by multilineated cells containing highly ordered arrangements of actin and myosin microfilaments that give the tissue a striated appearance
Skeletal Muscle Components
What is this actin and myosin?
Actin is a protein that makes up the cytoskeletal microfilaments in eukaryotic cells
Myosin is also a protein that converts ATP to mechanical energy

What is a sarcomere?
Sarcomeres are the contractile units of a skeletal muscle. Each myofibril in a muscle cell
