sliding filament model

mechanism proposed for muscle contraction where myosin head groups of the thick filaments move along the interdigitated actin of the thin filaments, sliding past them and thereby shortening the sarcomere.

That offers downside protection for shareholders, so I'm happy to hold Apple stock," Manish Singh, head of investments at Crossbridge Capital in London told Bloomberg.
The fundamental assumptions of this model were that the balance of forces is not only parallel but also perpendicular to the long axis of sarcomeres (myofibrils), taking into account the balance of viscoelastic forces originating from the filament lattice and crossbridges (actin-bound myosin heads); the probability of crossbridge formation is dependent on the spacing of two filaments (lattice constant); and lattice constants decrease with increasing sarcomere length (i.

The increase in calcium allows actin to interact with myosin, and the crossbridge contract cycle occurs.
The inactivation of RhoA and its downstream protein could not inhibit the activation of the myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) and it could also result in vessel relaxation by the crossbridge breakdown between myosin and actin.
