    • Ca2+ attaches to the troponin causing it to move
    • Tropomyosin on the actin in moved exposing the myosin binding sites
    • Myosin heads bind with the myosin binding sites forming cross bridges
    • ADP and Pi on the myosin head are released
    • Myosin changes shape moving the actin over the myosin
    • ATP binds to the myosin head causing it to detach
    • ATPase on the myosin head hydrolyses the ATP forming ADP and Pi
    • Hydrolysis causes the myosin head to return to its original position and the cycle starts again. This causes the sarcomere to shorten and the muscle contracts.

    so i think basically it breaks the ATP into ADP and Pi which moves the myosin head back to where it was
    hope that helped!
    what ? it doesnt move it back to where it was . it bends it forward resulting in a power stroke.

    the use of ATPase is after the power stroke, the power stroke was a couple bullet points before. After that the ATP joins with the myosin head and the ATPase hydrolyses it to make ADP and Pi. The energy from that moves the head back to where it was in order to make more power strokes.

    WTHH why you givin both maths and bio ?!
    i personally think chem was okiesh ! now i can concentrate on bio ! and then v r done !!!!

    well, i was taught that ATP results in detachment of myosin head.
    and ATPase is involved in its HYDROLYSIS.
    so how can it possibly help in the detachment of myosin head when it is ACTUALLY hydrolysing ATP ( which is needed)

    no thats not what im saying, the ATP attachment causes the myosin head to detach while the hydrolysis of it creates energy to move the head back up ready for another power stroke, its in the orange textbook page 142

    well. to get the head moved back wouldnt it DETACH from the actin and then come back ??!

    ... yes it does detach... it detaches when the ATP binds to it, it goes back to a straight position after hydrolysis down to the ATPase

    It recombines ATP + Pi to make ATP which releases the myosin head from the binding site once it has completed one movement.
    It then returns to it's original position and the process begins again.
    noo
    ATPase break down ATP into ADP and Pi in the bulb head of myosin in order to break down the the actomyosin bridge

    u r ryt iesians this is the role of ATPase

    ya it break down actomyosin bridge and this requires ATP

    so apparantly you are sayin that hydrolysis happens twice ?
    once for the power stroke
    and second for the detach and STRAIGHTENING of myosin head.

    can you give a reference . i dont have the orange book.

    that's the whole process with the role of ATPase in hydrolysing the ATP. I have the feeling we are saying the same thing in different ways...

    also just to clarify I didn't say it hydrolyses for the power stroke i said it happens after the power stroke

    right ! well someone above said that ATP is then hydrolysed as it moves back to its original position !! DUH ! i never even heard that

    did you write it or can you give a credible reference for it (not the orange book)
    because it doesnt make sense why would energy be needed to bring the myosin head to its original position ? it will just SPRING back once it is released from the actin.

    if you read the step by step that is exactly how it happens, also when the other person said it breaks down the bridge, that is what i am saying, what do you think happens in the sliding filament theory?? i thinks its exactly the same as me but in different words tbh.
