Skeletal Muscle

Parts of

Skeletal Muscle Voluntary, Striated, Multinucleated Articular Movement/Support and Posture (anti-gravitational)
Muscle Mass Organ Level Tendons: attach Muscle to Bone; superficial Fascia: connective tissue; Blood Vessels and Nerves
Muscle Fibers Multinucleated, Striated, Uni-directional bound by a Sarcolemma membrane and supplied with a branch of 1 motor nerve
Myofibril Sub-cellular 1000/cell
Myofilament Molecular Level - made of Myosin: Thick protein filament; and Actin: Thin protein filaments Sliding Filament Action: Myosin cross-bridges pull Actin over Myosin ---> shortening Sarcomere unit (contraction)
Sarcomere section from z-line to another contains1 Myofilament/section of Myosin and Actin
Z-line anchors within the Myofilament Stabilize the filament
Tendon Inelastic cord; made of Dense REGULAR connective tissue connecting MUSCLE to BONE
Aponeurosis a Wide, FLAT tendon connecting MUSCLE to MUSCLE
Retinaculum a Ligamentous band holding TENDONS in place, providing a Point of LEVERAGE
Epimysium (Superficial Fascia) Dense, IRREGULAR connective tissue sheath around entire Muscle Mass
Perimysium INTERNAL Fascia binding parallel fibers, forming FASCICULI
