How are the thick and thin filaments arranged ?


Thin or Actin filaments :

The light bands contain actin and is called I-band or Isotropic band, whereas the dark band called ‘A’ or Anisotropic band contains myosin.  Actin filaments are thinner and are called thin filaments. The myosin filaments are called thick filament. The thick filaments in the ‘A’ band are also held together in the middle of this band by a thin fibrous membrane called ‘M’ line. The ‘A’ and ‘I’ bands are arranged alternately throughout the length of the myofibrils.
