Week 3.   No bones about it; your bones can’t do much without muscles to move them. You have three major types of muscle tissue known as skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscle. Learn about all 11 organ systems with the Amoeba Sisters! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnjmrrQ6xOs, w3

SMOOTH MUSCLE (400X) is non-striated, and the individual muscle fibers are very thin and spindle-shaped. The nucleus of each muscle cell is visible here as elongated purple structures.

3 types of muscle

Muscle tissue are highly specialized to contract or shorten, to produce movement. The three types of muscles: Skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, smooth muscle.

MUSCLE TISSUE: Muscle tissue is important for movement and is highly vascular to meet its energy demands. They are highly excitable cells specialized for contraction. There are three types of muscle tissue: skeletal, smooth and, cardiac. Refer to individual pictures for detailed descriptions.

Muscle tissue - A tissue composed of cells or fibers, the contraction of which produces movement in the body.

Image result for microscopic view of smooth muscle tissue

Does all muscle look the same? If you were to look at skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscle using a microscope, you would see differences in their structure.

This photo displays cardiac muscle tissue. This tissue type is striated, branched, and has 1-2 nuclei. Cardiac muscle tissue can be recognized by intercalated disks (dark thickened part). Cardiac muscle cells are bigger than smooth muscle cells and smaller than skeletal muscle cells. They control involuntary movement (the heart).

Germ layers - Organogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Muscle tissue is elongated, stimulated to contract, and vascular (needs a lot of blood supply for energy). There are three types as depicted in the image: skeletal - striated, cylindrical, multi-nucleiated, and the biggest cell of the three types. Cardiac - striated, branched, 1-2 nuclei, has intercalated discs, and are the second biggest. Intercalated discs have desmosomes and gap junctions for molecule and liquid transport. Smooth - nonstriated, spindle shaped, 1 nuclei, and are the…
