In this photo, I know that the arrows pointing towards the M-line of sarcomere on actin filaments are due to the power strokes of myosin heads. However, what I don't understand are the arrows on the myosin filaments pointing away from the M-line.
Are they the reaction forces (action-reaction pair, where the action force is power stroke)? Also, will this force (pointing away from M-line) 'tear apart' the myosin filaments on M-line? If not, how can the filament withstand this force?
