Movement in living organisms is achieved by many different mechanisms of which muscle contraction is one of the most studied and best understood. Nevertheless, the precise details of muscle action at the molecular level are still being evaluated. This book provides a concise account of our understanding to date.

This volume, which explores the topic of muscle contraction across the diverse fields of physiology, biochemistry and biophysics, has been revised and updated in order to include material on recent advances in such areas as in vitro motility assays and molecular genetic approaches.


Introduction. Gross anatomy and physiology. Muscle cells. Contractile proteins. Mechanism of ATP hydrolysis. Crossbridge structure and function. Mechanochemical coupling. Molecular basis of regulation. In vitro motility assays. Problems and prospects. Appendix. References. Index.
