Excitation–contraction Coupling - Skeletal Muscle
... In skeletal muscle the method of excitation contraction coupling relies on the ryanodine receptor being activated by a domain spanning the space between the T tubules and the sarcoplasmic ... diffuses across the synapse and binds to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors on the myocyte, opening them ... T-tubule system contains voltage-dependent calcium channels known as dihydropyridine receptors (DHP) which are activated by the end-plate potential ...
Sarcomere - Contraction
... Acetylcholine binds to a post-synaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptor ... A change in the receptor conformation allows an influx of sodium ions and initiation of a post-synaptic action potential ... channels are in close association with ryanodine receptors present on the sarcoplasmic reticulum ...

Famous quotes containing the word receptors:

    Our talk of external things, our very notion of things, is just a conceptual apparatus that helps us to foresee and control the triggerings of our sensory receptors in the light of previous triggering of our sensory receptors.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
