Diagram of a Muscle Cell The diagram above shows some detail of the structure of a muscle cell. It illustrates the distinctive structure of muscle cells, including striated myofibrils components of muscle cells only. It is also important to remember that the components essential for all cells not all of which are illustrated in the diagram above are also present in muscle cells.
Additionally, a gene expression profile can be generated for each lot of cells produced to further characterize the expression levels of a variety of pertinent myogenic and non-myogenic gene targets please inquire.
Together, these data provide researchers with a clearly defined primary starting culture. Each lot of skMDC is free of adventitious agents and is quality tested to ensure product consistency and performance.
Dependability Each lot is produced through a tightly controlled process using only high-quality processing materials to ensure consistent isolation. The qualities displayed by skMDC products indicate their ability to create a useful system for studying muscle differentiation as well as providing tools for the exploration of new therapeutic molecules for the treatment of muscle disease.
For more information, see our publications. Can I request a specific component to be omitted from a specific catalog item? Can I reserve or hold specific products? Cook MyoSite offers a convenient and affordable solution for customers who would like to purchase at least 10 vials of a particular lot of cells.
What are your quality control practices? Primary cultures have a finite lifespan and limited number of population doublings in vitro. Cook MyoSite cryopreserved cells and associated reagents are tested prior to shipment for contaminating agents.
Contamination of cell cultures may affect cell growth, function, and behavior. For detailed information concerning Quality Control testing and specifications, contact us.
How should I handle cryopreserved cells upon receiving? Cells arrive frozen on dry ice. If no dry ice is present in shipping container, contact customer support. To ensure the highest level of cell viability, thaw and initiate culture immediately upon receipt. Cryovials submersed in liquid phase may fill with liquid nitrogen and, upon thawing, explode.
When handling frozen cells, it is recommended that protective gloves, clothing, and eyewear be worn. What are culture conditions for skMDC?
Each lot is free from adventitious agents and is quality tested to ensure product consistency and performance.Organelles of a skeletal muscle cell contain the same organelles as other animal cells, with the addition of myofibrils.
Muscle fibers within the skeletal cell are known as myofibers.
These organelles allow skeletal muscle cells to contract. Muscle fibers can range from 10 to 80 micrometers in diameter and may be up to 35cm long.
Beneath the Endomysium and surrounding the muscle fibre is the Sarcolemma which is the fibres cell membrane and beneath this is the Sarcoplasm, which is the cell's cytoplasm, a gelatinous fluid which fills most cells.
All that any muscle can do is create contraction force. A muscle is a bundle of many cells called fibers.
You can think of muscle fibers as long cylinders, and compared to other cells in your body, muscle fibers are quite big. They are from about 1 to 40 microns long and 10 to microns in diameter.
Skeletal Muscle Definition. Skeletal muscle is a specialized contractile tissue found in animals which functions to move an organism’s body. Skeletal muscle is comprised from a series of bundles of muscle fibers, surrounded by protective membranes.
Skeletal muscle cells. Muscle cells, commonly known as myocytes, are the cells that make up muscle tissue. There are 3 types of muscle cells in the human body; cardiac, skeletal, and smooth.
Skeletal muscle cells are long, cylindrical, multi-nucleated and striated.
Each nucleus regulates the metabolic requirements of the sarcoplasm around it. Skeletal Muscle Cells. skMDC are available from a variety of donors afflicted with muscle-related diseases, including diabetes, muscular dystrophies, and age-related disorders, as well as healthy donors.
