involuntary skeletal muscle contraction Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description A process in which force is generated within involuntary skeletal muscle tissue, resulting in a change in muscle geometry. Force generation involves a chemo-mechanical energy conversion step that is carried out by the actin/myosin complex activity, which generates force through ATP hydrolysis. Involuntary skeletal muscle is skeletal muscle that is not under conscious control. (Gene Ontology, GO_0003011)
