Skeletal Muscle

Skeletal muscle comprises of individual muscle cells or myocytes, known as muscle fibers. There are formed from the fusion of developing myoblasts (a form of embryonic progenitor cell that offers rise to the muscle cell) in a process known while myogenesis. Muscle fibres are cylindrical, as well as multinucleated. Skeletal muscle is a type of striated muscle tissue and that is under the voluntary control from the somatic nervous program.
