What Muscle Tissue Has a Banded Appearance?

Answer

Three types of muscle tissue can be identified - skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle and smooth muscle. The fibres of skeletal muscle and cardiac muscle exhibit cross striations at the light microscope level and they are both referred to as striated muscle. When skeletal tissue is viewed in the longitudinal section a distinctive pattern of alternating dark and light bands are exhibited.
