Gene Set: STRIATED_MUSCLE_CONTRACTION_GO_0006941

Standard name STRIATED_MUSCLE_CONTRACTION_GO_0006941
Systematic name M19924
Brief description Genes annotated by the GO term GO:0006941. A process whereby force is generated within striated 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. Striated muscle is a type of muscle in which the repeating units (sarcomeres) of the contractile myofibrils are arranged in registry throughout the cell, resulting in transverse or oblique striations observable at the level of the light microscope.
