Fatty acids supply energy for muscle contraction during high intensity, anaerobic contractions. a. True False 44. Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune diseases that is characterized by the 1955,9facetylcholine receptors on skeletal muscle membrane, resulting in muscle weakness. Which of the following drugs might be used to treat the condition? a. curarex b. drugs that inhibit acetylcholinesterase 0. drugs that block acetylcholine receptors botox injections e. calcium channel blockers 45. Stretching a muscle to its maximal length will maximize its ability to produce tension. a. True CE False 46.
