  • Homework--Monday, January 16th 'Ice' Day-Anatomy

    Anatomy-Here is the answers to the study guide you were to do for homework. We will review for the test on Wednesday. Do not change your answers in pencil, only change them in a different color ink from what you did your work in.

     Anatomy/Physiology Study Guide Test #5 (Module #5)

    1.      Define the following terms:

    a.       Sarcomere: repeating unit of a myofibril

     b.      Motor unit: One motor neuron and all the muscle fibers it innervates

     c.       All-or-none law of skeletal muscle contraction: An individual muscle fiber contracts with maximal force in response to an action potential

     d.      Submaximal stimulus: Stimuli of increasing strength that create more action potentials in more motor neurons.

    e.       Maximal stimulus: a stimulus that is strong enough to create action potentials in all the motor neurons innervating a whole muscle.

    f.       Muscle tone: The state of partial contraction in a muscle, even when the muscle is not being used.

     2.           In terms of their nuclei, skeletal muscle fibers are different from most cells in two ways. What are those ways?  Skeletal muscle cells have many nuclei rather than just one. Also, the nuclei are at the edge of the cell rather than near the center.

    3.      The following steps occur form muscle contraction. Put them in the proper order:

    a)      5-The muscle action potential travels down a T-tubule.

    b)      2-ACh is released from the presynaptic terminal.

    c)      9-ATP binds to the myosin heads, making them release the active sites on the actin.

    d)     7-Ca2+ binds to troponin, causing tropomyosin to move and exposing the active sites on the actin, allowing the myosin heads to bind the actin.

    e)      3-Ach travels across the synaptic cleft.

    f)       10-The return stroke.

    g)      6-Ca2+ are released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum.

    h)      8-The power stroke.

    i)        1-An action potential travels down the axon of a motor neuron.

    j)        4-ACh interacts with the muscle fiber membrane to create a muscle action potential.

     4.      The concentration of Ca2+ in the sarcoplasmic reticulum is decreasing. Is the muscle fiber starting to contract or has it finished contracting? Starting to contract, because calcium ions bind to the troponin on the actin myofilaments to begin contraction.

     5.      If you could look at several muscle fibers while they are in action, how could you determine which fibers are a part of the same motor unit? All of the fibers in the same motor unit will contract identically at the same time.

     

     6.      What is the function of acetylcholinesterase? If it were not for acetylcholinesterase, what would happen to a muscle fiber? Acetylcholinesterase inactivates ACh after ACh has stimulated the postsynaptic membrane. If it were not for this enzyme, the muscle fiber could not relax once it started contracting.

     7.      A muscle is stiff. It can neither contract nor relax. What is wrong in the sarcomere? What causes this?

                The myosin heads must be gripping the active sites and not letting go. This must be due to a lack of             ATP in the sarcomere.

     8.      A motor unit has just been recruited. What has just happened?

                When a motor neuron is recruited, it is responding to a stimulus by sending action potentials down its             axon.

     9.      All of the motor units in a muscle have been recruited. If more stimulus is applied, what is that called?  A supramaximal stimulus is being applied.

     10.  A muscle is expending energy faster than it can be replaced by aerobic respiration. There is also no creatine phosphate left. What can the muscle fiber do?  The only option left is anaerobic respiration.

     11.  What will build up in the cell described in question 10?

                Lactic acid will build up in this muscle fiber.

     12.  When we breathe hard after we are finished exercising, what two things is the increased oxygen supply doing for the muscle fiber?  This provides energy for the muscle fibers to (1) remake creatine phosphate and (2) remake ATP for an energy reserve.

     13.  Label the following structures of a whole muscle:

                A) epimysium                          b) perimysium             c) endomysium

                d) muscle cell (fiber)               e) fascicle

     14.  Label the parts of the sarcomere below:

                A) actn myofilament               b) myosin myofilament                       c) Z disk

                d) H zone                    e) A band                    f) I band

     15.  When a muscle fiber contracts, what happens to:

    a)      The distance between the Z disks? decreases

                            c) The length of the I bands? decreases

                            d) The length of the H zone?  decreases

                            e) The length of the myosin myofilament? Remains the same

                            f) The length of the actin myofilament? Remains the same
