Muscles. Computer artwork of a front view of a man's skeletal muscle system superimposed on part of a protein molecule. Skeletal muscles are under the conscious control of the brain and account for around 45% of the weight of the body. Muscles are mainly composed of proteins, notably the contractile elements actin and myosin. The artwork of the musculature was drawn by the Flemish anatomist Vesalius in the 16th century.
