Caption: Calcium ions being released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Sarcoplasmic reticulum is a form of endoplasmic reticulum found in muscle cells. Unlike normal endoplasmic reticulum, which synthesises proteins, sarcoplasmic reticulum stores calcium ions, and releases them when the muscle is stimulated. The release of calcium ions causes the muscle to contract.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
