Storyboard Text

  • I AM A MYOSIN. MY FAMILY (ANOTHER 300 MYOSIN) AND I LIVE TOGETHER IN A VERY THICK FILAMENT, OR STRAND. 
  • WE ARE SURROUNDED BY OUR NEIGHBORS, THE ACTIN. WHILE OUR FILAMENT IS VERY THICK, THEY HAVE VERY THIN FILAMENT. OUR ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD IS CALLED THE SARCOMERE, HOWEVER IT INCLUDES MUCH MORE THAN JUST OUR TWO FILAMENTS 
  • IT ALSO INCLUDES THE Z-DISKS. THE ACTIN IS ATTACHED TO THE TWO Z-DISKS ON EITHER SIDE, WHILE MY FAMILY AND I JUST SIT BETWEEN THE LAYERS OF ACTIN FILAMENT.
  • AFTER THIS ACTION OCCURS I GAIN A NEW FRIEND, BUT IT IS NOT THE ACTIN, IT IS A NEW MOLECULE. THIS MOLECULE IS NAMED ATP AND WILL ATTACH TO MY HEAD AFTERWARDS
  • ATP
  • HOWEVER, ATP IS NOT THE ONLY NEW THING GAINED. WHEN THIS MUSCLE IS STIMULATED (OUR COMMUNITY), THE SARCOMERE IS FLOODED WITH CALCIUM MOLECULES (CA++).
  • AFTER THIS PROCESS IS OVER WITH, OUR NEIGHBORHOOD BECOMES A LITTLE SMALLER.
