Unformatted text preview: Muscle Muscle Tissue capable of contraction and excitability.- originates from mesenchyme.- provided with well developed vascular supply and nerve network . Tissue Types: a) skeletal, striated = voluntary. b) smooth, visceral = involuntary. c) cardiac, striated = mostly involuntary. Muscle Skeletal Muscle - forms "flesh" or "meat" of body; 40% of total body weight. Cells form long fibers to 100 mm (4 in.); Cells are unique - formed from a syncytium, many cells fused together for more efficient function; Multinucleate, 35 nuclei/mm length; nuclei always at periphery of cell. very well organized; ensheathed by areolar CT (endomysium; perimysium; epimysium). Skeletal Muscle Cells organized into contractile units = Sarcomeres. Sarcomeres are connected end to end = Myofibril. Many myofibrils then make up a cell. Sarcomere - the basic functional contractile unit; Organization of myofilaments, thin (actin) and thick (myosin) , ER = Sarcoplasmic Reticulum Triads (t-tubule + 2 cisternae) at A-I Junction Skeletal Muscle...
