molecule to produce the energy required for muscle contraction. ... The actin-
myosin cross-bridge is now ready for the ATP binding of step 1.
To evaluate the nervous response needed to cause calcium to be released for
muscle to contract and the steps necessary for muscle ... The following steps are
involved in muscle contraction: ... Myosin ATPase activated and ATP hydrolyzed.
Ironically, ATP is also needed for muscle relaxation. The chemical... ... ADP, Pi
and the myosin bridge then attach to actin, causing muscle contraction. During
During muscle contraction myosin heads bind to actin, change their configuration
on actin along with releasing the products of ATP hydrolysis and cause relative ...
When muscles need more ATP to release energy required for muscle contraction,
the reaction represented by the above equation proceeds from left to right.
