unlike skeletal muscle, it contracts due to an increase in the intracellular [Ca2+]
one endocrine could cause contraction in some smooth muscle but relaxation in others
like skeletal muscle, it contracts due to an increase in the intracellular [Ca2+]

it has only one carbon ring
it bings to membrane-bound receptors
it will negatively impact the anterior pituitary gland
it has more than two carbon rings
it binds to intracellular receptors

over Autumn Break, Alex found himself face-to-face with a mammal that he had never seen before. After he got over his initial shock, he noticed that its right hind leg was lacerated (cut). while tending to the would which was bleeding heavily, Alex noticed that the cut muscle was very dark red. After patching the animal up, Alex told it that
it would soon be back to making its quick by short sprints very soon
it would soon still be again winning the leg press competitions
it would soon be back to making its long runs very soon
it would soon still be losing the leg press competitions
