3 Cross Section of a Skeletal Muscle Blue = epimysiumGreen = perimysiumYellow = endomysium surrounding muscle fiber
4 Skeletal Muscle Cross Section Slide Pointer is on the perimysium surrounding a muscle fascicleSkeletal Muscle Cross Section SlideEpimysium would be here surrounding the entire muscle organ (but it is not visible on the slide)
5 Skeletal Muscle Cross Section Slide Muscle fascicles can be a variety of shapes!
6 Skeletal Muscle Cross Section Slide Pointer is on the perimysium surrounding a muscle fascicleblack arrows are pointing at individual skeletal muscle fibers
7 Multinucleated Skeletal Muscle Fibers The small purple dots are the nuclei of a skeletal muscle fiber. Notice that each fiber has more than 1 nucleus?
