This activity is designed for minimal prep time and can be completed in one class period. Students can observe and measure the contraction of real muscle tissue using the materials included. The kit features glycerinated (preserved) muscle tissue that amazingly retains the ability to contract when ATP and the appropriate ions are added. The glycerinated muscle is processed from striated muscle tissue. During processing, much of the water-soluble content is extracted in cold glycerol, while the striations are left intact and can be easliy observed under low-power magnification.
