Product Details

GIANT SARCOMERE MODEL
BY
DENOYER-GEPPERT
We Have One in Stock and Ready to Ship

This model unequivocally demonstrates that individual myofilaments neither change shape nor shorten, rather the proteins actin and myosin slide past one another, resulting in the shortening of the sarcomere itself, thus demonstrating the sliding filament theory of muscle contraction.  Clearly depicted are the arrangement, configuration, and function of thin filaments (actin, troponin, and tropomyosin) and thick filaments (myosin), the m-line and the z-line. 
Included with the sarcomere model is a translucent sheath representing the sarcoplasmic reticulum which can be wrapped around the sarcomere to elicit discussion and elucidate understanding of the role calcium ion transport plays in muscle contraction.
This model is a must have not only for physiology classes but also for athletic trainers, sports medicine specialists, as well as physical and massage therapists.
