There are 139677 EST sequences in skeletal muscle.


There are 40 tissue specific genes in skeletal muscle.

   Skeletal muscle is a type of striated muscle, which usually attaches to tendons.
Skeletal muscles are used to create movement, by applying force to bones and joints;
via contraction. They generally contract voluntarily (via somatic nerve stimulation),
although they can contract involuntarily through reflexes. The whole muscle is
wrapped in a special type of connective tissue, epimysium.
