Caption: A double myosin filament w myosin heads, dissolve to myosin filaments intertwined into the myofibrils of a thick cord of sarcomere. Muscle cells are comprised of protein cylinders called myofibrils. Myosin is an ATP or adenosine triphosphate dependent motor protein. In muscle cells, the long tail of an individual myosin molecule is intertwined with tails of other myosin molecules, forming the thick filaments of the sarcomere. Force-producing heads protrude from the sides of the filaments, ready to bind to active sites on actin.
