relaxation of muscle Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description A process in which the extent of muscle contraction is reduced. Muscle relaxation can involve a number of processes including the removal of calcium from the cytoplasm to the sarcoplasmic reticulum lumen through the action of Ca2+ ATPases. In some muscles, calcium-independent pathways also play a role in muscle relaxation by decreasing the phosphorylation state of myosin light chain. (Gene Ontology, GO_0090075)
