About this book

Striated, or skeletal, muscle is the most common type of muscle in the vertebrate body. In this book, the molecular processes involved in its contraction and relaxation are described.

'! recommended reading for science students specialising in physiology, or medical and veterinary students pursuing special option courses in musculoskeletal biology.' G. Goldspink, Journal of Anatomy 'Researchers and post-doctoral students in muscle physiology, biochemistry and medicine will certainly enjoy reading this book; I certainly did.' J. Caspar Ruegg, Journal of Muscle Research and Cell Motility


1. General aspects of motile systems; 2. Mechanochemistry of contraction; 3. Calcium and the regulation of contraction; 4. I filament regulation; 5. Regulation of muscle function by phosphorylation; 6. Dystrophin and the muscular dystrophies.
