Term Information [More information on skeletal muscle contraction]

Accession
GO:0003009
Name
skeletal muscle contraction
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
A process in which force is generated within skeletal muscle tissue, resulting in a change in muscle geometry. Force generation involves a chemo-mechanical energy conversion step that is carried out by the actin/myosin complex activity, which generates force through ATP hydrolysis. In the skeletal muscle, the muscle contraction takes advantage of an ordered sarcomeric structure and in most cases it is under voluntary control. Source: GOC:mtg_cardio, GOC:mtg_muscle
