Draw the diagram of smooth muscle cell and a sperm cell. Comment on the variety of shapes of cell by taking two more examples

​Dear Student,
  • Striated muscles are named so because they show alternate light and dark bands or striations when stained appropriately.
  • They are also called skeletal muscles because they are found attached to the bones which form the skeleton. 
  • They are voluntary muscles because their movement is under our will.

Structure: The cells of striated muscular tissues are long, cylindrical, unbranched and multinucleate (i.e., having many nuclei).

Location: Striated muscles are located in the body wall, tongue, limbs and pharynx.
