e. F

Discussion 
a. 
b.
  • Inherent rhythmicity is a property of the tissue where tissue can repetitively contract and relax without any external stimuli 
  • following tissue has inheritant rhythmicity
  • Cardiac muscle
  • Smooth muscle
  • Neurons in central nervous system
c.
  • Both cardiac and skeletal muscle made up of similar contratlie protine 
  • Actin 
  • Myocine 
  • Tropomyosin 
  • Troponin 
  • Toponin I
  • Troponin C
  • Troponin T
d.
