Energy source for contraction

Energy source for contractionATP ADP + Creatine phosphate = ATP

ATP is constantly broken down and rebuilt

ATP = adenosine triphosphateADP= adenosine diphosphate

ATP produced by cellular respirationoccurs in the mitochondria (requires O2 and glucose)25% of energy formed is usedWhat happens to the rest?Heat more muscle activity= more heat

Oxygen DebtOxygen is used to make ATP in cellular Resp. Exerciserun out of O = Lactic acid Fermentation Lactic Acid Fermentation muscle cramps

Muscle FatigueMuscle lose ability to contract after prolonged exercise or strainCaused by lactic acid build up

Threshold StimulusMinimal strength required to cause a contractionMotor neuron releases enough acetylcholine to reach threshold

All-or-None ResponseFibers do not contract partially, they either do or don't

Motor UnitThe muscle fiber + the motor neuron

Recruitmentmore and more fibers contract as the intensity of the stimulus increases

Muscle ToneSustained contraction of individual fibers, even when muscle is at restLost if motor nerve axons are cut

Hypertrophy - muscles enlarge (working out or certain disorders)Atrophy - muscles become small and weak due to disuse
