Caption: Muscle. False-colour scanning electron micrograph of a bundle of skeletal muscle fibres (red), also known as striated muscle fibres, and a few capillaries (blue). Skeletal muscles are responsible for the movement of the skeleton and organs such as the tongue and the globe of the eye. Each fibre is surrounded by a thin layer of connective tissue known as endomysium. Skeletal muscle fibres are grouped together into bundles called fasciculi and each one is enclosed by a sheath of collagenous tissue (not seen) called perimysium. Most muscles are made up of many fasciculi. Magnification: x1430 at 6x7cm size. x2150 at 4x5"
