Skeletal Muscle, Tongue Muscle

Skeletal Muscle
  • A: Perimysium is DCCTRA with some LCT and surrounds a single fascicle of muscle cells/fibers

    B: Endomysium is LCT with some DCCTRA and surrounds each muscle cell

    C: Epimysium surrounds the whole muscle and is DCCTRA

    D: Artery
  • A: Perimysium is DCCTRA with some LCT

    B: Endomysium is LCT with some DCCTRA

    C: Peripherally located nuclei
  • A: Endomysium is LCT with some DCCTRA

    B: Peripherally located nuclei

    C: Notice the striations in the myocytes this is due to the actin and myosin fibrils
Tongue Skeletal Muscle
  • A: Unkeratinized stratified squamous epithelium of the tongue

    B: Irregularly arranged skeletal muscle is only found in the tongue
  • Skeletal Muscle Irregularly arranged

    A: Transverse fibers run up and down in the tongue

    B: Longitudinal muscle fibers run the length of the tongue
