Muscle Tissue

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 01 May 2022

Muscle tissue is made up of cells that have the special ability to contract or reduce in order to create movement of the body parts. The cells are lengthy and slender so they are often called muscle fibers, and these are usually arranged in bundles or layers that are surrounded by connective tissue. Actin and myosin are contractile proteins in muscle tissue. Muscle tissue can be classified into skeletal muscle tissue, smooth muscle tissue, and cardiac muscle tissue. Smooth muscle cells are pin designed, have a single, centrally located center, and lack striations. Heart muscle has branching fibers, one nucleus per cell, striations, and intercalated disks.
