...oil the muscle
Skeletal and heart (cardiac) muscles are composed of muscle fibers that contain many myofibrils, the contractile unit of muscles. myofibrils
are, in turn, built of many repeating units known as sarcomeres. As the proteins of the sarcomere are therefore crucial for muscle contraction, their ...
