Best Answer

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

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
