Muscle cells





Muscle cells have nucleus, rough and smooth ER, golgi body, ribosomes, mitochondria, cytoskeleton(http://answers.yahoo/question/index?qid=20071001040405AA3VW5J). These are all organelles. The nucleus controls all the activities of the cell; the rough ER begins to synthesis a protein which goes to the secretory pathway(http://en wikipedia.org/wiki/Endoplasmic_reticulum); the function of the mitochondria is to produce energy(www.epilepsy.com/epilepsy/mitochondria_functions); the smooth ER is connected to the nuclear envelope and contains an enzyme which converts glucose-6-phosphate to glucose; the golgi body processes and packages macromolecules; ribosomes are tiny spherical bodies that help make proteins; The cytoskeleton helps to maintain the cell shape and allow movement of the cell organelles as well as cell locomotion and muscle fibre contraction(http://cellsalive.com/cells/cytoskel.htm).

I learnt that the smooth ER is connected to the nuclear envelope and contains an enzyme which converts glucose-6-phosphate to glucose

Muscle cells are quite interesting, it helps produce energy and to move. I don't understand the scientific stuff...

Nice.

I learnt that the nucleus is cigar-shaped instead of the usual circular/oval nucleus.

i thought muscle cells can produce energy by themselves, but now i know that mitochondria produce energy

I didn't know that muscle cells are shaped like that. Very knowledgeable.

I learned that the smooth ER is connected to the nuclear envelope and contains an enzyme which converts glucose-6-phosphate to glucose from your post. I would suggest that that they give more detailed explanations.

I have learnt that the muscle cells have a very interesting shape. It is different from the typical animal cell and plant cell.
