Skeletal Muscle Biopsy Beyond Histological Diagnosis: Ex-vivo Culturing and 3D Bioengineered model

Skeletal Muscle : Overview, Histology and Pathology

Muscle tissue represent one of the four tissue in the human body with the epithelial tissue, connective tissue and nervous tissue. Embryologically, the muscle tissue is derived by the mesoderm and it can be skeletal, cardiac or smooth tissue type. The main differences on muscle tissue types rely on the histology, function and location (Table 1)
