Sarcomere - Muscle Cell Keychain

$27.75

mini-sarcomere-02.pngThis representation of a sarcomere, a subunit of the muscle cell, is both a keychain, and a miniature kinetic artwork! Press the outer halves of this keychain together to demonstrate the functioning of the cell that gives rapid motion to the animal kingdom.

Skeletal, or striated muscle is composed of millions of these sarcomeres working in concert. The outer parts of the keychain, finished in antiqued pewter, represent the muscle cell's thin (actin) filaments, while the inner part, finished in antiqued brass, represents the cell's thick (myosin) filaments. A great educational keepsake for anyone interested in athletics, physical therapy, or cell biology!
