Caption: A molecular model of an actin filament segment (multi-colored) attached to three myosin heads (tan). During muscular contraction, the myosin heads will climb along the actin filament, shifting the actin filament's position. When myosin binds to ATP, the actin-myosin bond is destabilized and both filaments detach and return to their original positions.
