 As a Dentist, I am constantly explaining the dangers of poor oral hygiene, but the Teeth Model #2860 I purchased from Anatomy Now finally makes sense for my patients.

Anatomy Now's Sarcomere Model Includes:

  • Reflecting the most recent advances in electron microscopic ultrastructure, the model unequivocally demonstrates that individual myofilaments neither change shape nor shorten, rather the proteins actin and myosin slide past one another, resulting in the shortening of the sarcomere itself.
  • Clearly depicted are the arrangement, configuration, and function of thin filaments (actin, troponin, tropomyosin), and thick filaments (myosin, myosin heads), the M-line and Z-line.
  • Invaluable not only for physiology classes, but also for athletic trainers, sports medicine specialists, physical and massage therapists, the working sarcomere model can also plainly demonstrate muscle tone, muscle cramps, knots and tears.
  • Included with the sarcomere model is a translucent sheath (shown at right) representing the sarcoplasmic reticulum which can be wrapped around the sarcomere to elicit discussion and elucidate understanding of the role calcium ion transport plays in muscle contraction.

Measurements:  22L×6W×8H inches overall

This sarcomere model represents a complete sarcomere — the smallest functional unit of a myofibril of striated muscle — with Z lines or disks at either end, and scaled to tens of thousands of times actual size, this first-ever working model graphically illustrates the sliding filament theory of skeletal muscle contraction.  Comes complete with sarcoplasmic reticulum and user manual.
