Yeah. Osteoclasts are multinucleated and they work in bone resorption.

Hepatocytes and some WBC (neutrophils and eosinophils) are also multinucleated.

Which type of muscle is multinucleated striated and in cylinder form?

Skeletal muscle.

What is an example of a multinucleated organism?

Skeletal muscle cells and osteoclasts are multinucleated. Multinucleated cells can also be seen in the presence of some diseases, such as tuberculosis, but these cells are abnormal and usually die.

Why are skeletal muscle cells multinucleated?

The number of cells depends on how large the muscle is; muscles consist of fiber bundles, which are made up of myofibrils. A sarcomere is one of the segments that the myofibril is divided into. In each fiber bundle there are multinucleate cells, which can extend the length of the skeletal muscle. So, the number of cells in a skeletal muscle depends on the size of the muscle. for example, the number of cells in one of our triceps larger than one of the small muscles in a finger.

What is the definition of a Skeletal muscle cell?

Skeletal muscle is a form of striated muscle tissue existing under control of the somatic nervous system. It is one of three major muscle types, the others being cardiac and smooth. As its name suggests, most skeletal muscle is attached to bones by bundles of collagen fibers called tendons. The muscle fibers that make up skeletal muscle are called myofibers and consist of long, cylindrical, multinucleated cells. These cells are made of actin and myosin fibers repeated as a sacromere. Therefore skeletal muscle cells are long, cylindrical, multinucleated cells made of actin and myosin myofibers. They come together to create the fibers which make up tissues such as skeletal muscle tissue.

Is cardiac muscle mitotic?

It consists of a maximum of 2 nuclei per fiber so no it can't be considered multinucleated. Only skeletal is multinuke.

Do skeletal muscle cells have glycosomes?

Yes, skeletal muscle cells have glycosomes and myoglobin in their sarcoplasm.

Is smooth muscle cells voluntary?

no, skeletal muscle cells are

Do skeletal muscle cells have one nucleus?

skeletal muscle cells have multiple nuclei in each cell.

How are smooth muscle cells similar to skeletal fibers?

Smooth muscle cells are similar to skeletal muscle cells due to the actin-tropomyosin interactions. These interactions "tell" the muscle when to contract.

How do skeletal muscle fibers become multinucleated?

Being multinucleated enables anything to synthesize more protein. Also we know that skeletal muscle fibres are much longer than that of any other muscle fibre, so it needs a huge amount of actin and myosin protein to bring about required contraction of a muscle, as actin and myosin crossbridge is required for muscle contraction. Thus it can be postulated that this boon of being multinucleated is essential for a skeletal muscle to posses adequate amounts of actin and myosin for muscle contraction.

What tissue has one nucleus?

Smooth muscle tissue has a single nucleus in each cell :)

What kind of muscle contains cylindrical cells with branching ends?

Skeletal muscle tissueVoluntary or skeletal muscles contains long non branching cylindrical cells.
