What is a Sarcomere?

A sarcomere, in Biology, are segments of skeletal muscle fiber. They are divided into segments of filaments that are made of actin or myosin. With muscle contraction, the filaments move over each other and it causes the sarcomere to shorten. You can find more information here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sarcomere
