Muscle contraction made easy with our working model!
Our colourful model teaches the complexities of muscle contraction in a dynamic way! Your students make their model of a sarcomere, including the Z line, I band, A band, thick myosin filament, thin actin filament and tropomyosin/troponin.
They then use it to contract the sarcomere walking the myosin heads along the actin filaments and hydrolysing ATP to provide the power. Also shows the role of calcium. Get contracting today!
Goes well with our Neuromuscular Junction model.
