Definition

Striated muscle is a type of muscle composed of nerves, protein, motor neurons, blood vessels, and muscle fibers surrounded by connective tissue. The number of nuclei in the cells of striated muscle depends on its use. Both the myocardium and skeletal muscles are striated muscles. They have a defined tone, elasticity, contractility, and excitability. Striated muscles are attached to the skin or skeleton.
