Skeletal Muscle Tissue
Skeletal muscles are associated with movements of the body
Skeletal muscle cells have more than one nucleus. The nuclei are positioned near the surface of the muscle cell under the sarcolemma. Striated muscles, are also called skeletal muscles because of their anatomical location, are formed from a large number of muscle fibres, that range in length from 1 to 40 mm and in diameter from 0.01 to 0.1 mm. Each fibre forms a (muscle) cell and is distinguished by the presence of alternating dark and light bands. This is the origin of the description "striated," as an alternate terminology of skeletal muscle.
Internal Structure of a Skeletal Muscle
Fascicle – A bundle of muscle cells (fibres) bound together by connective tissue to form a function unit.
Note that the epimysium is composed of irregular collagen fibres. These become more aligned and regular towards the end of the muscle to form the muscle tendon. The tendon fuses to the end of the periosteum on the bone to which it is attached.
