Cardiac Muscle Cell Function?


The functions of cardiac muscle cells are to shorten and lengthen in order for the heart muscles to stay intact while the heart is beating. Other cardiac muscle cells carry electrical impulses to the muscles signaling the heart to pump the blood through the heart chambers. The two types of cardiac muscle cells are the myocardiocytes and the cardiac pacemaker cells. These cells have a very dense mitochondrial layer that allows them to produce high amounts of Adenosine triphosphate which is a chemical produced by muscle cells that transports chemical energy from the body to the muscle cells so that they are very resistant to fatigue.
