SMOOTH MUSCLE (400X) is non-striated, and the individual muscle fibers are very thin and spindle-shaped. The nucleus of each muscle cell is visible here as elongated purple structures.

3 types of muscle

Muscle tissue are highly specialized to contract or shorten, to produce movement. The three types of muscles: Skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, & smooth muscle.

Fibroid is the name given to 2 different types of tumor: Uterine Fibroids or Tumors composed of smooth muscle cells and Fibroma or Tumors composed of fibrous connective tissue. Home Remedies for Fibroids: 1. Heat castor oil and apply on the abdomen area. This will ease the pain and discomfort caused by fibroid. 2. Gently[...]

Smooth muscle tissue is formed in the walls of hollow organs such as the stomach, uterus and blood vessels. IT constricts and enlarge to propel things.

This photo displays cardiac muscle tissue. This tissue type is striated, branched, and has 1-2 nuclei. Cardiac muscle tissue can be recognized by intercalated disks (dark thickened part). Cardiac muscle cells are bigger than smooth muscle cells and smaller than skeletal muscle cells. They control involuntary movement (the heart).

The structure of skeletal muscle tissue!

This is the structure of a skeletal muscle. Even though this is a zoomed in picture it still shows that skeletal muscles are much larger in size in comparison to cardiac and smooth.

MUSCLE TISSUE: Muscle tissue is important for movement and is highly vascular to meet its energy demands. They are highly excitable cells specialized for contraction. There are three types of muscle tissue: skeletal, smooth and, cardiac. Refer to individual pictures for detailed descriptions.

Muscle tissue - A tissue composed of cells or fibers, the contraction of which produces movement in the body.

Galanin. From contraction of smooth muscle tissue in the bowel to inhibition of insulinsecretion from the pancreas - or augmenting then pai allieviating effect of morphine. Galanin is predominantly an inhibitory, hyperpolarizing neuropeptide and as such inhibits neurotransmitter release. Linked to an acute antidepressive efficacy, probably by a mechanism related to that of therapeutic sleep deprivation.
