Actin-myosin crossbridge animation

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Thomas Lonergan (Faculty), Jan 11, 2002
Comment: I use this site to supplement the two-dimensional diagrams of myosin/actin
interactions typically shown in textbooks. I then ask the students to answer a
series of questions about what they saw. Students find it very challenging to
describe events occuring in a three-dimensional animation. Use of this
apaproach can show you who is just memorizing such steps, and who comprehends
the interactions.
