the three types of muscle

The three types of muscle

Three types of muscle exist in the human body: smooth, cardiac, and skeletal.

Each fiber is surrounded by a thin layer or areolar connective tissue called endomysium.

Smooth: located in the walls of hollow internal organs and blood vessels; moves materials through organs and regulates blood flow in blood vessels; the fibers of this muscle are narrow, tapered root shaped cells; can sustain prolonged contractions and does not fatigue easily; involuntary

cardiac muscle
Cardiac Muscle
  • Forms the heart wall.
  • Fibers are uninucleated , striated, tubular, and branched
  • Relaxes completely between contractions, which prevents fatigue
  • Contractions are involuntary
skeletal muscle
Skeletal muscle
  • Fibers are tubular, multinucleated, and striated
  • Contractions always simulated
  • Supports the body
  • Makes bones and body parts move, constant body temperature and protection; usually found attached to tendons
in the laboratory
In the Laboratory
  • Muscles can be studied in the lab
  • When a muscle fiber is isolated and provided with ATP, it contracts completely along its entire length
    • Result from the all or nothing law: Law that states that muscle fibers contract maximally or not at all
  • In contrast, a whole muscle shows a degree of contractions
    • Isolated and stimulated electronically
    • Mechanical force of contraction is recorded as a visual pattern called myogram
muscle twitch
Muscle twitch
  • Muscle twitch: A single contraction that last for only was fraction of a second
  • Three parts:
    • Latent period: period of time between stimulation and initiation of contraction
    • Contraction period: When the muscle shortens
    • Relaxation period: When the muscle returns to its former length
  • A. Series of twitches
  • B. Summation
    • Increased muscle contraction
  • C. Tetanic Contraction
    • Maximal sustained contraction
    • No longer shows individual twitches; rather the twitches are fused and blended completely into a straight line
    • Continues until the muscle reaches fatigues: Failure of a muscle fiber to continue to contract due to the exhaustion of ATP
  • Gradual weakening that occurs after repetitive use
  • Reasons why muscles become fatigue
    • ATP is depleted during constants use
    • Lactic acid by fermentation
    • Muscles run out of neurotransmitter, acetylcholine
    • The brain itself signals a person to stop exercising even if the muscles aren’t fatigued
in the body
In the body
  • In the body, muscles are innervated to contract by nerves
  • Each axon stimulates a number of muscle fibers
  • Motor Unit: A nerve fiber together with all of the muscle fibers it innervates.
    • Obeys all-or-none law because the muscles in the motor unit are all stimulated at once; they either contract or do not contract
  • Tetanic contractions ordinarily occurs in the body because , as the intensity of nervous stimulation increase, more and more motor units are activated
    • This is known as recruitment
  • While some muscles are contracting, other are relaxing, which is why muscles rarely experience fatigue
  • Even when some muscles appear to be resting, they exhibit tone, in which fibers re always contracting.
    • Muscle tone is important in posture
exercise and size of muscles
Exercise and Size of Muscles
  • Muscles not used or used for weak contraction decrease in size or atrophy.
  • Atrophy: Occurs when a limb is placed in a cast or when the nerve serving a muscle is damaged.
    • Can cause muscle fibers to shorten, leaving body parts in contorted positions
    • If nerve stimulation is not replaced, muscle fibers are replaced by fat & fibrous tissue
  • Forceful muscular activity causes muscles to increase in size as the number of myofibrils within the muscle fibers
  • Hypertrophy: occurs only if the muscle contracts to at least 75% of it maximum tension
  • Athletes take anabolic steroids, either testosterone or related chemicals, to promote muscle growth. This causes undesirable side effects
slow twitch muscle fibers
Slow-twitch muscle fibers
  • Muscle fibers metabolize both aerobically and anaerobically but some muscle fiber utilizes one method more than the other to provide myofibrils with ATP
  • Slow-twitch fibers tend to be aerobic and is referred as Type I fibers
    • Steadier tug and more endurance despite having motor units with a smaller number of fibers
    • Helpful in sports such as running, biking, jogging
    • Tire when fuel supply is gone
    • Have many mitochondria and are dark in color because they contain myoglobin, respiratory pigment found in muscles
    • Resistant to fatigue because they have a substantial reserve of glycogen and fat
fast twitch muscle fibers
fast twitch muscle fibers
  • Fast-twitch fibers tend to be anaerobic and is referred as Type II fibers
    • Designed for strength because their motor units contain many fibers
    • Provide an explosion of energy and are helpful in sport activities such as sprinting, wrestling and swinging a golf club
    • Light in color because they have fewer mitochondria, little to no myoglobin, and fewer blood vessels
    • Develop maximum tension more rapidly than slow twitch fibers and their tension is greater
    • Vulnerable to an accumulation of lactic acid that causes them to fatigue quickly
basic principles
Basic Principles
  • Muscle contracts at a joint, one bone remains stationary and the other moves
  • The origin of a muscle is on the stationary bone and the insertion of a muscle is on the bone that moves
  • A body part is moved by a group of muscles working together. A prime mover is the muscle that does most of the work.
  • The assisting muscles are the synergist
  • Muscles contract, the shorten. Therefore they can only pull; they cannot push. However, muscles have antagonist. Antagonist pairs work opposite one another to bring about movement in opposite directions

effects of aging
Effects of aging
  • Muscle mass and strength decrease with age. At first, muscle is replaced by connective tissue, and then eventually fat. Endurance decreases. Degenerate changes take place in the mitochondria.
  • Changes in cardiovascular systems begin to occur, which affect muscle function. If elderly people undergo training, muscle mass and strength can increase.
  • When exercising, regardless of age, muscle buildup is stimulated. Exercise also improves the cardiovascular system and reduces the risk of diabetusand glycation, excess glucose molecules stick to body proteins so that the proteins no function properly.
  • Exercise burns glucose, which prevents muscle deterioration.
  • On page 151, the illustration titled Human Systems Work Together tells how the muscular system works other systems of the body to maintain homeostasis.
  • Contractions in the cardiac muscle is what a heart beat is. It creates blood pressure, the force that sends blood through the arteries and arterioles. The walls of the arteriols. The walls of the arteries and arteriols are smooth muscle.
  • Constrictions of arteriol walls is regulated to help maintain blood pressure. Arteriols branch into capillaries where exchange takes place that creates and cleanses tissue fluid. Blood and tissue fluid are the internal environment of the body, and without cardiac and smooth muscle contraction, blood would never reach the capillaries for exchange to take place.
  • Blood is retuned to the cardiovascular system within lymphatic vessels. Skeletal muscle contraction presses on the cardiovascular veins and lymphatic vessels, normal blood pressure could not be maintained.
homeostasis continued
Homeostasis (Continued)
  • The contraction of sphincters composed of smooth muscle fibers temporarily prevents the flow of blood into capillary. This is an important homeostatic mechanism because in times of emergency it is more important, or example, for blood to be directed to the skeletal muscles than to the tissues of the digestive tract.
  • Smooth muscle contraction also account for peristalsis. The process that moves food along the digestive tract. Without this action, food would never reach all the organs of the digestive tract where digestion releases nutrients that enter the bloodstream. Smooth muscle contraction assists the voiding of urine, which is necessary for ridding the body metabolic wastes and for regulating the blood volume, salt concentration, and pH of internal fluids.
  • Skeletal muscles protect internal organs, and their strength protects joints by stabilizing their movements. Skeletal muscle contraction raises and lowers the rib cage and diaphragm during the active phases of breathing. As we breathe, oxygen enters the blood and is delivered to the tissues, including the muscles, where ATP is produced by skeletal muscle contraction allows the body temperature to remain within the normal range for human beings.
  • Finally, skeletal muscle contraction moves bones and allows us to perform those daily activities necessary to our health and benefit. Although it may seem as if movement of our bodies not affect homeostasis, it does so by allowing us to relocate our bodies to keep the external environment within favorable limits for our experiences.
