myosin:  Skeletal Muscle  Contraction 5 Basic Steps: 1. Action potential moves  down motor neuron 2. Neurotransmitter (Ach)  released by motor  neuron 3. Ach initiates action  potential (AP) in muscle  fiber 4. Muscle AP triggers Ca 2+   release from SR 5. Ca 2+  initiates contraction Figure 10–9, 293
