Muscle tissue accounts for nearly one-half of the total body weight and consists of three distinct subtypes:
• striated (skeletal) muscle
• smooth (visceral) muscle, and
• cardiac muscle
Each type of muscle cell is designed to perform one basic function.
Striated muscle is attached to bones that move the skeleton.
Smooth muscle is located in the walls of hollow internal structures, such as the intestines and blood vessels, allowing such organs to expand and contract.
Cardiac muscle occurs only in the heart, where it forms the walls and enables the heart to pump blood. When viewed under the light microscope, striated muscle cells appear long and thread-like with alternating light and dark cross strips called striations. In contrast, smooth muscle has no striations, Cardiac muscle cells, each of which has a nucleus, are slightly striated. Each cardiac muscle cell tends to divide into a "y" or "x" shape, so that it has more than two ends and joins more than two other cells, i.e., it intercalates. The ends of one cardiac muscle cell are separated from adjoining cells by a band called an intercalated disk.
Unlike skeletal muscle, smooth muscle and cardiac muscle are controlled involuntarily, i.e., an individual cannot stop or start the muscle action.
highly cellular and well vascularized
skeletal muscle tissue,cardiac muscle tissue smooth muscle tissue
Skeletal muscle tissue, caradiac muscle tissue, and smooth muscle tissue. Smooth not rough muscle tissue!
NO, muscle is not a conective tissue because tissue is divided into different types (epithelial, conevtive, muscle and nervous). Muscle is in the the muscle tissue category
Muscle tissue is deep to epidermal tissue. Epidermal tissue is superficial to muscle tissue.
Yes. It is a muscle tissue.
The most abundant muscle tissue in the body is skeletal muscle tissue.
Muscle tissue can stretch.
the connective tissue that connects muscle to muscle is an aponuerosis.
muscle tissue, the muscle is called smooth muscle
Muscle cells are smaller than muscle tissue.
Connective Tissue is the tissue that connects the skin to the muscle.
smooth muscle tissue
Skeletal muscle tissue.
Smooth muscle tissue :)
The heart is made up of muscle tissue (cardiac muscle). The muscle tissue contracts to pump blood.
you can say its hard tissue paper Smooth muscle is one of the types of muscle tissue
Muscle fiber (myofiber) is the cell, muscle tissue is the type of tissue, lots of muscle tissue and some connective tissue is a muscle organ, and those muscle organs are all parts of the muscle system. All have the same name but mean different types when it is clarified in to the anatomical units.
The three types of muscle tissue are:smooth, cardiac, and skeletal. The smooth muscle tissue moves your internal organs, the cardiac muscle tissue helps your heart beat, and the skeletal muscle tissue helps you move your skeleton.
the muscle tissue that is found in your heart is called cardiac muscle
nothing old the muscle tissue is bad for a muscle
involuntary striated muscle tissue
Skeletal muscle tissue.
