Gene Set: SMOOTH_MUSCLE_CONTRACTION_GO_0006939

Standard name SMOOTH_MUSCLE_CONTRACTION_GO_0006939
Systematic name M13593
Brief description Genes annotated by the GO term GO:0006939. A process whereby force is generated within smooth muscle tissue, resulting in a change in muscle geometry. Force generation involves a chemo-mechanical energy conversion step. The chemo-mechanical energy conversion step is carried out by the actin/myosin complex activity, which generates force through ATP hydrolysis. Smooth muscle differs from striated muscle in the much higher actin/myosin ratio, the absence of conspicuous sarcomeres and the ability to contract to a much smaller fraction of its resting length.
