Muscle requires ATP to contact Myosin = ATPase molecular motor Cf) rigor mortis Myosin has two binding sites 1. Myosin+actin (rigor) 2. Myosin-ATP 3. ATP hydrolyzed by myosin 4. Actomyosin 5. Power stroke 6. ADP unbound 2 3 4 5 1 6 Contraction of sarcomeres ( Sliding-filament theory) Each myosin head provides a cross-bridge that interacts with an actin filament. Regulation of contractions 1. Ca 2+ binding 2. Myosin-binding site exposed
