(2)   The thick filaments of muscle fibers are made of the following protein:
(3)   Within the muscle sarcomere, at the outer edges of the A band where there is overlap between the thin and thick filaments, each thin filament is surrounded by:
(4)   Within the muscle sarcomere, binding of Ca2+ to this molecule will lead to the exposure of cross-bridge binding sites.
