Which of the following types of muscle tissues is responsible for moving most parts of
the body = skeletal muscle.

Hair and nails are composed primarily of =keratin.
Which of these muscle components is the smallest= myofibril.
The thick filaments of a myofibril are composed of: myosin.
Skeletal muscle appears striped because of: the arrangement of thick and thin filaments.

The site of communication between a neuron and a muscle fiber is called a: neuromuscular junction.
Which of the following is TRUE according to the sliding filament mechanism of muscle contraction= when a muscle fiber is not contracting, the thin fibers are not connected to the thick fibers.
The fluid in the sarcoplasmic reticulum contains a high concentration of calcium ions, which are released when an action potential stimulates it.
Myosin is part of the thick filaments; actin is part of the thin filaments.
In skeletal and cardiac muscles, relaxation occurs as calcium ions are pumped back into the sarcoplasmic.
