Actin

Actin is a family of globular multi-functional proteins that form microfilaments.

Anisotropy

Anisotropy, is the property of being directionally dependent, which implies different properties in different directions, as opposed to isotropy.

Ångström

The ångström or angstrom is a unit of length equal to (one ten-billionth of a metre) or 0.1 nanometre.

Cardiac muscle

Cardiac muscle (heart muscle) is one of the three major types of muscle, the others being skeletal and smooth muscle.

Christmas and holiday season

The Christmas season, also called the festive season, or the holiday season (mainly in the U.S. and Canada; often simply called the holidays),, is an annually recurring period recognized in many Western and Western-influenced countries that is generally considered to run from late November to early January.

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops.

Iridescence

Iridescence (also known as goniochromism) is the phenomenon of certain surfaces that appear to gradually change colour as the angle of view or the angle of illumination changes.

Isotropy

Isotropy is uniformity in all orientations; it is derived from the Greek isos (ἴσος, "equal") and tropos (τρόπος, "way").

Motor protein

Motor proteins are a class of molecular motors that can move along the cytoplasm of animal cells.

Muscle contraction

Muscle contraction is the activation of tension-generating sites within muscle fibers.

Myocyte

A myocyte (also known as a muscle cell) is the type of cell found in muscle tissue.

New!!: Myofibril and Myocyte · See more »

Myofilament

Myofilaments are the filaments of myofibrils, constructed from proteins, principally myosin or actin.

Myogenesis

Myogenesis is the formation of muscular tissue, particularly during embryonic development.

Myosin

Myosins are a superfamily of motor proteins best known for their roles in muscle contraction and in a wide range of other motility processes in eukaryotes.

Nebulin

Nebulin is an actin-binding protein which is localized to the thin filament of the sarcomeres in skeletal muscle.

New Year's Day

New Year's Day, also called simply New Year's or New Year, is observed on January 1, the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian calendar as well as the Julian calendar.

New Year's Eve

In the Gregorian calendar, New Year's Eve (also known as Old Year's Day or Saint Sylvester's Day in many countries), the last day of the year, is on 31 December which is the seventh day of Christmastide.

Skeletal muscle

Skeletal muscle is one of three major muscle types, the others being cardiac muscle and smooth muscle.

Sliding filament theory

The sliding filament theory explains the mechanism of muscle contraction based on muscle proteins that slide past each other to generate movement.

Smooth muscle tissue

Smooth muscle is an involuntary non-striated muscle.

Striated muscle tissue

Striated muscle tissue is a muscle tissue that features repeating functional units called sarcomeres, in contrast with smooth muscle tissue which does not.
