composed of muscle fibers that are built from actin and myosin filaments. Attached to bones by tendons and responsible for voluntary movements. have striations and nucleus on edge
muscle fibers built from actin and myosin filaments. lack striations. found in walls of digestive tract, blood vessels, and bladder. contracts automatically therefore not voluntary
