Term Information [More information on slow-twitch skeletal muscle fiber contraction]

Accession
GO:0031444
Name
slow-twitch skeletal muscle fiber contraction
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
slow-twitch skeletal muscle fibre contraction
Definition
A process in which force is generated within slow-twitch 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. The slow-twitch skeletal muscle is characterized by slow time parameters, low force development and resistance to fatigue. Source: GOC:mtg_muscle, GOC:mah, GOC:ef
