Organs of Response

  • enable animals to respond to information
  • include
    • internal organs that maintain homeostasis
    • organs that interact with the environment
    • organs of movement
  • organs that interact with the environment
    • nematocysts of cnidarians
    • chromatophores of several groups
    • exocrine glands
    • electric organs
  • organs of movement
    • microtubules
      • chromosomal movements
      • axon growth
      • cilia & flagella
    • microfilaments (+ myosin)
      • cytokinesis
      • endocytosis
      • amoeboid movement
organs of movement
Organs of Movement
  • muscles are universal among animals
    • mediate whole tissue contractions
    • due to interactions of actin and myosin filaments
organs of movement7
Organs of Movement
  • vertebrate muscles are of three types
    • smooth muscle
      • provides autonomic control of internal organs
      • long, spindle-shaped uni-nucleate cells
      • sheets of cells in direct electrical contact through gap junctions
      • cells depolarize in response to stretching
      • membrane polarity is altered by autonomic neurotransmitters
organs of movement9
Organs of Movement
  • vertebrate muscles are of three types
    • cardiac muscle
      • uninucleate branched cells resist tearing
      • intercalated discs provide intercellular reinforcement
      • sheets of cells are in electrical contact
      • pacemaker cells produce myogenic beat
      • responds to autonomic neurotransmitters
organs of movement11
Organs of Movement
  • vertebrate muscles are of three types
    • skeletal muscle
      • mediates voluntary movements
      • multinucleate fibers develop from the fusion of many cells
      • muscles consist of bundles of muscle fibers
      • actin/myosin arrangement gives a striated appearance
organs of movement13
Organs of Movement
  • skeletal muscle
    • muscle fiber contains myofibrils
    • myofibrils contain many ordered assemblies of actin & myosin
    • thick myosin filaments are clusters of myosin molecules with free heads
    • six thin actin filaments surround each myosin filament
    • ends of actin filaments overlap ends of myosin filaments
structure of a myofibril
structure of a myofibril
  • overlapping actin & myosin filaments produce a repeating pattern in muscle fibers
    • bipolar myosin filaments are anchored by the M band within the H zone and titin filaments
    • oppositely directed actin filaments are joined at the Z line within the I band
    • A band encompasses the entire myosin filament
    • sarcomere extends between two Z lines
organs of movement18
Organs of Movement
  • skeletal muscle
    • contraction occurs as actin filaments slide past myosin filaments
    • sarcomeres decrease in length during contractions
      • myosin head binds to actin
      • myosin head changes position
      • myosin head hydrolyzes ATP, releases actin and resets
organs of movement20
Organs of Movement
  • skeletal muscle
    • contractions are initiated by action potentials
    • each motor neuron activates many muscle fibers (motor units)
      • action potential depolarizes motor end plate
      • depolarization causes plasma membrane to fire action potential
      • action potential spreads over surface of plasma membrane and down T tubules
organs of movement22
Organs of Movement
  • skeletal muscle
    • action potential releases Ca2+ from sarcoplasmic reticulum
    • in unstimulated muscle, tropomyosin blocks myosin binding sites & no contraction occurs
    • released Ca2+ binds troponin, exposing myosin binding sites & contraction occurs
organs of movement24
Organs of Movement
  • muscle contraction
    • sum of contractions of individual fibers
      • spatial summation
        • sum of contractions of several fibers
      • temporal summation
        • sum of sequential contractions of a fiber
    • tetanus - maximum muscle tension
    • tonus - low, resting level of muscle tension
muscle strength performance
Muscle strength & performance
  • Fiber types determine endurance & strength
    • Slow twitch & fast twitch
  • Strength is related to length
  • Exercise increases strength& endurance
  • Fuel supply limits performance
skeletal systems
Skeletal Systems
  • work with muscles to produce movement
  • hydrostatic skeletons are found in soft-bodied animals
    • muscular fluid-filled body
      • contraction in one direction causes body to expand in another direction

skeletal systems29
Skeletal Systems
  • exoskeletons
    • external shells of various compositions
      • provide points of attachment for internal muscles
      • joints allow relative mobility of skeletal segments
skeletal systems31
Skeletal Systems
  • endoskeletons
    • internal body scaffolding
    • provide points of attachment for muscles
    • joints allow relative mobility of adjacent bones
    • skeleton consists of two extracellular matrices
      • cartilage - largely collagen
      • bone - collagen + calcium phosphate
skeletal systems32
Skeletal Systems
  • endoskeletons
    • bone is constantly being broken down and reformed
      • osteoclasts erode bone
      • osteoblasts form new bone
      • osteocytes are osteoblasts trapped in solid matrix
bones are dynamic figure 47 13

skeletal systems34
Skeletal Systems
  • human skeleton
    • 206 bones
      • axial skeleton
        • head, spinal column, ribs
      • appendicular skeleton
        • pectoral girdle
        • pelvic girdle
        • bones of the limbs
skeletal systems36
Skeletal Systems
  • human skeleton
    • bone may be
      • cancellous
      • compact

Haversian systems

skeletal systems39
Skeletal Systems
  • human skeleton
    • muscles move bones around joints
      • bone attaches to bone by ligaments
      • muscle attaches to bone by tendons
    • muscles work in opposed pairs
      • flexor muscles bend the joint
      • extensor muscles straighten the joint
skeletal systems41
Skeletal Systems
  • the force exerted by a joint depends on its construction
    • the length of the moving bone (load arm) relative to the insertion of the flexor on it (power arm) determines its maximum force
