I. Review of Sliding Filament Theory -draw a sarcomere at rest: At rest, myosin is blocked from actin by tropomyosin When Ca ++ binds to troponin , this causes tropomysoin to fall away, exposing actin to myosin Myosin cross bridges reach up, grab onto actin Powerstroke occurs Actin slides over myosin!

Control of the Sliding Filament Theory Two areas of control: presense of Ca ++ , powerstroke A. Myosin Activation/Deactivation two binding sites on head: 1. actin 2. ATP Activation: Myosin head picks up ATP , immediately splits it into ADP + P + energy, but does not release anything!! Hangs like this until… actin becomes available! Myosin grabs onto actin , releases ADP + P + energy, powerstroke occurs (myosin cross bridges “flip”, now point toward m-line) **only one site can be filled at a time
