Light microscopy of skeletal muscle fibres seen in cross section and separated by connective tissue carrying blood vessels and nerves. The stippled appearance is due to many individual units of contractile filaments called myofibrils. The nuclei of each fibre (i.e. a muscle cell) are displaced to the periphery and typical of skeletal muscle. Magnification x250 when printed at 10 cm.
