125:201 Introduction to Biomedical Engineering Biomechanics, Homework #1 Due Monday October 18 th Problem 1 : (Muscle Physiology) a) A non-hydrolyzable analog of ATP which uses a methylene linkage (-CH2-) instead of oxygen (–O–) between the terminal phosphate and the ADP component is a potent inhibitor of muscle contraction. Briefly explain what step in the contraction cycle this compound would inhibit and why you chose that step. b) In a sarcomere, the M lines serve as the attachment site for __________, while the Z disks serve as the attachment sites for ___________. c) Arrange these skeletal muscle components in order from outermost to innermost:sarcolemma, connective tissue sheath, myofilaments, myofibrils d) During which phase of the muscle contraction (Isometric Contraction, Isotonic contraction, Isotonic relaxation, Isometric Relaxation) is muscle tension developed? Explain e) During which phase of muscle contraction (Isometric Contraction, Isotonic contraction, Isotonic relaxation, Isometric Relaxation) are the elastic elements shortening while the sarcomere is lengthening? Explain
