  1. The function of the T tubules is to:

    A) permit the AP (action potential) to reach the terminal cirstence
    B) bind the myofilaments together to form the sacromere
    C) bind the Ach neurotransmitter
    D) energize the myosin ATPase
    E) remove Ca++ from the cytoplasm
    A) permit the AP (action potential) to reach the terminal cirstence
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  2. The activation gate (voltage sensitive gate) for Na+ is stilumated to open when _________ and closes when ___________.
    A) threshold voltage is reached/ the inactivation gate closes
    B) Ach binds/K+ starts to leave
    C) Ach binds/ Ach unbinds
    D) threshold voltage is reached/ the equilibrium potential is reached
    E) threshold voltage is reached/ membrane potential is below threshold
    E) threshold voltage is reached/ membrane potential is below threshold

    E) all over the plasma membrane in cardiac muscle fibers
    C) a and c

  4. The slowest gate to open during depolarization phase an action potential is:

    A) Na+ activation (voltage) gate
    B) K+ voltage gate
    C) none, all open at the same time
    D) Na+ inactivation gate
    B) K+ voltage gate
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  5. In a relaxed sacromere which of the following is NOT true?

    B) myosin is not bound to actin
    C) troponin lacks Ca++
    D) the actin binding site for myosin is covered
    E) the myosin head is in its high energy state and erect position
    A) the myosin head is able to bind a new ATP
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  6. Recruitment causes:

    A) a longer duration to the contraction for each fiber
    B) more motor neurons that innervate that muscle to be excited
    C) an increase of the frequency of action potential in a motor unit
    D) a and c
    E) a greater percentage of the fibers in the muscle to contract
    D) a and c
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
