Thin filaments partially overlaps the thick filaments ..... isn't this correct?? the 7th point in structure of myofibril says : the thick filaments partially overlaps the free ends of thin filaments!
Does both of them mean the same?? or the one given is wrong?
@ Adrita : Both of them means the same.
This will be clear by this diagram
In the diagram the thick and thin filaments overlapping each other in A band of the muscle fiber are shown. And you can clearly see the thick filaments partially overlaps the free ends of thin filaments (the filaments which are attached to Z line are thin filament where as those present in center are thick filament)
Hope your doubt is clear now!!
