Difference Between Cardiac and Skeletal Muscle Cells


Active member
Could someone tell me the differences between cardiac muscle cells and skeletal muscle cells on a microscopic level?


What do you mean by "microscopic level"? Inside the cell? I remember that the skeletal muscle cells have various nuclei and had a long, "one directional" shape compared to the heart muscle tissue that has only one nucleus per cell and had ramifications.

Heart muscle cells bound to each other by gap junctions and desmosomes.
