Skeletal muscle is one of the three major muscle types (besides cardiac and smooth muscle). They are a form of striated muscle tissue that is controlled by the somatic nervous system. Muscle fibers make up the individual components and are formed from the fusion of myoblast (the cells). Myofibers are multinucleated cells made up from the thin filaments called actin and thick filaments myosin myofibrils (long protein bundles) which are repeated as sarcomere, which act as the machinery for muscle contraction and gives it the striated appearance.
