Muscle tissue is a contractile tissue made up of actin and myosin fibers[GO]. [ https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2801266&group_id=36855&atid=440764 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscle_tissue http://amigo.geneontology.org/amigo/term/GO:0060537 ]
Vertebrate muscle is categorized into three major muscle types defined by their structural and functional properties: skeletal, cardiac and smooth. In Dmel the counterparts are somatic, heart/cardiac and visceral. Here we take a cell type based approach.
Muscle tissue is a contractile tissue made up of actin and myosin fibers[GO].
One of the four types of tissue in traditional classifications. Tissue that contains cells with contractile filaments that move past each other and change the size of the cell. Muscle tissue also is separated into three distinct categories.[AAO]
portion of muscle tissue
- mesoderm-derived structure
- develops from some mesoderm
- composed primarily of some muscle cell
- capable of some muscle contraction
- part of some musculature
- only in taxon some Eumetazoa
