Striations are cause by pooling of blood after death in the direction of where the body originally was before being moved.

My answer would be....

The arrangement of myofilaments(actin/ myosin) on a myofibril produce the striations of a skeletal muscle cell . Also myofibrils align to give distinct bands. :)

Hope that helps :D

The "stripes" in the muscle are called striations. Smooth muscle doesn't have the striations.

Skeletal muscle which has microscopic alternating bands of light and dark called striations. Therefore it is striated, voluntary muscle.
