    What is the function of ATP in skeletal muscle contraction?

    A)  Hydrolysis of ATP by myosin energizes the cross-bridges, providing the energy for force generation.

    B)  Binding of ATP to myosin dissociates cross-bridges bound to actin, allowing the bridges to repeat their cycle of activity.

    C)  Hydrolysis of ATP by the \[C{{a}^{2+}}\]-ATPase in the sarcoplasmic reticulum provides the energy for the active transport of \[C{{a}^{2+}}\] into the reticulum, lowering cytosolic \[C{{a}^{2+}}\] to pre-release levels, ending the contraction and allowing the muscle fiber to relax.

    D)  All of the above.

    Correct Answer: D
