Question

In the process called "excitation-contraction coupling" (the events that lead up to a muscle cell's contraction), what part of this process is disrupted by death? (Actually, all of it is disrupted by death, but we can pinpoint a linkage between death, and the onset of rigor mortis--as well as explaining why rigor mortis eventually ends.)
