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
voluntary muscles and cardiac muscles
Smooth muscle Tissue have no striations. (there are 3 types of muscle tissue - Skeletal, Cardiac, and Smooth) Smooth propels substances along internal passageways involuntarily.
The "stripes" in the muscle are called striations. Smooth muscle doesn't have the striations.
skeletal muscle ONLY
Skeletal muscle which has microscopic alternating bands of light and dark called striations. Therefore it is striated, voluntary muscle.
skeletal muscle tissue
Striations are found in skeletal and cardiac muscle. Striations are not present in smooth muscle due to the randomized pattern of actin and myosin filaments.
The only muscle in the body that is non-striated is the smooth muscle. It does not have any visible striations.
