What is the role of ATP in muscle contraction?
ATP prepares myosin for binding with actin by moving it to a higher- energy state and a “cocked” position. ATP must bind to myosin to break the cross-bridge and enable the myosin to rebind to actin at the next muscle contraction. via
What 3 things are needed for muscle contraction?
In order for a skeletal muscle contraction to occur;
What steps of muscle contraction require ATP?
ATP is required for the process of cross-bridge cycling which enables the sarcomere to shorten. The steps of cross-bridge cycling are as follows: When ADP** is bound to myosin heads, they are able to bind to actin filaments of the adjacent myofibril to form a cross-bridge. via

How do muscle contract and relax?
A multistep molecular process within the muscle fiber begins when acetylcholine binds to receptors on the muscle fiber membrane. The proteins inside muscle fibers are organized into long chains that can interact with each other, reorganizing to shorten and relax. via
What are the 4 steps of muscle contraction?
Is ATP needed for muscle contraction and relaxation?
ATP is needed for normal muscle contraction, and as ATP reserves are reduced, muscle function may decline. This may be more of a factor in brief, intense muscle output rather than sustained, lower intensity efforts. Lactic acid buildup may lower intracellular pH, affecting enzyme and protein activity. via
What are two ways that ATP is used during muscle contraction?
ATP is used for two things in muscle cells: active transport of calcium (Ca++) and movement of motor proteins. via
