Term Information [More information on striated muscle contraction]

Accession
GO:0006941
Name
striated muscle contraction
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
sarcomeric muscle contraction
Definition
A process in which force is generated within striated muscle tissue, resulting in the shortening of the muscle. 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. Striated muscle is a type of muscle in which the repeating units (sarcomeres) of the contractile myofibrils are arranged in registry throughout the cell, resulting in transverse or oblique striations observable at the level of the light microscope.
