Caption: Calcium pumps transport calcium back into sarcoplasmic reticulum, ending an action potential and causing relaxation. The process of muscle contraction will continue until the action potential is terminated. Relaxation is achieved when calcium pumps have actively transported calcium back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum, reversing the changes that previously occurred in troponin. Tropomyosin is now back in its original position covering the myosin binding sites on actin, preventing crossbridges and power stroke cycling.
